Last night, the Republican Party of New Rochelle nominated Cynthia Lobo as their candidate for New Rochelle City Court Judge.
Lobo has been for years a registered Democrat and had sought the Democratic domination earlier this year.
Mayor Noam Bramson wanted Susan Kettner as the candidate. Bramson sought to require Democrats to take a pledge not to mount a primary fight or run on another party line as a condition of being considered as the Democratic candidate. Lobo declined to take that pledge and instead sought the Republican nomination.
Lobo was the only New Rochelle resident to seek the nomination for City judge.
Cynthia Lobo thanked the Republican City Committee for the vote last night and added that she was the first “first bilingual Hispanic woman” to be nominated for a position as Judge for New Rochelle Court and to serve in the position.
She is registered as a Republican.. She is a member of many professional associations such as the New Rochelle Bar Association, the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and the Hispanic Bar Association. She is Director of the New Rochelle Police Foundation (2010) and a Board member of the Senior Personnel Placement6 Bureau since 2008.
Talk of the Sound will publish a press release and web site link as soon as it becomes available. Calls to Lobo were not answered and her office voicemail box is currently full.
