Governor M. Jodi Rell announced Friday tat she is nominating four people to the Connecticut Superior Court bench, replacing judges who have retired or been nominated to other judicial vacancies. One of the nominees is Stamford lawyer Mary Sommer Sandak, 58. All of the nominees require confirmation by the Legislature.

“Judges have a difficult but critical role in our system of justice and we must look for the best and brightest to fill these positions,” Governor Rell said. “Judges must be both courtroom ‘referees’ and arbiters of the law. Each of these nominees possesses the education, the depth of experience and the temperament we are looking for in such an all-important job.

“Arthur Miller, the famous Connecticut playwright, rightly titled his story of the Salem witch trials ‘The Crucible,’” the Governor said. “Courtrooms are crucibles, even when the subject matter is not as explosive as in Miller’s great drama. It is up to the judges we select to ensure that the ultimate product of these crucibles is justice.”

Governor Rell has nominated:

Mark T. Gould, 52, of North Haven (Republican). Since 2006, Gould has been a part-owner of the Greenburg & Gould law firm in New Haven. He was formerly a sole practitioner. Gould graduated from the University of Connecticut in 1977 and received a law degree from Lewis & Clark Law School in 1983. He is also an adjunct professor at Quinnipiac College School of Law.

Barbara Brazzel-Massaro, 55, of Trumbull (Republican). She is an Associate City Attorney for Bridgeport and has worked for the city since 1983. Brazzel-Massaro received her undergraduate degree from Montclair State College in 1974 and received her law degree from Western New England in 1981.

Mary Sommer Sandak, 58, of Stamford (Democrat). A founding partner in the Stamford law firm of Sandak Hennessey & Greco since 1990, Sandak has previously worked as an adjunct professor of business law and ethics at both the College of New Rochelle and the University of Connecticut. Sandak graduated from the College of New Rochelle in 1971 and received her law degree from the University of Notre Dame in 1975.

Terence A. Zemetis, 56, of Meriden (Democrat). Zemetis is president of the Meriden law firm of Delaney Zemetis & Triplett, where he has worked since 1977. He attended the University of Connecticut and received his bachelor’s degree in 1974, graduating from the Albany Law School in 1977.
