"Fidel Gomez has set himself apart from the pack by having tremendous decision writing skills and is well known in the legal community for having one of the sharpest minds," said Bronx Democratic Party Chairman and Assembly Member Marcos A. Crespo. "After having immigrated to this country from the Dominican Republic at the age of six, Fidel has dedicated his judicial career to serving his community in The Bronx and his story serves as a testament to the hard work, dedication, and tenacity that he brings to the table. Without reservation, I am proud to endorse Fidel Gomez for Civil Court Judge."
"I am pleased that such a distinguished and dedicated servant of the law is running for the Civil Court of the Bronx," said County Committee Chair and Assembly Member Latoya Joyner "As a Law Clerk for several of the Bronx's finest judges - including Justices Nelson Roman, Mitchell Danziger and Ben Barbato - Fidel's experience and judgment are of the highest competence and I know that if elected, he will serve with distinction in this new role as well."
"I am pleased that once again the Bronx Democratic Party has nominated a highly qualified individual to the bench. Fidel Gomez has a distinguished legal career and is a highly respected court attorney. I am certain that he will be a superb Judge of the Civil Court," said Assembly Member Jeffrey Dinowitz.
"Fidel Gomez is a dedicated public servant with almost two decades of legal experience, including over 10 years as Law Clerk in all branches of our courts," said Assembly Member Luis R. Sepulveda. "As a practicing attorney who has seen the quality of his work first hand, I am proud to endorse his run for the Civil Court Judge and it will truly be an honor to see him serve on the bench."
"Fidel brings a wealth of relevant experience to the bench. Significantly, having been a litigator for many years where he tried dozens of high exposure cases and having Clerked for Judges at both the Trial and Appellate levels, Fidel is uniquely qualified to serve on the Civil Court of the City of New York," said State Senator Jamaal T. Bailey.
