Judge Barzee Flores is eminently qualified to serve as a federal judge in the Southern District of Florida, having eight years of experience already as a circuit judge on Florida’s Eleventh Judicial Circuit in Miami. Before serving as a judge, she graduated cum laude from University of Miami Law in 1988, and worked in the Federal Public Defender’s office for 13 years.
The vacancy Judge Barzee Flores would fill has been open for more than a year, and is formally classified as a judicial emergency, meaning there simply aren’t enough judges to handle the large caseload. Despite the urgent need to fill this vacancy, Sen. Marco Rubio is blocking her nomination for no reason other than politics.
Call Sen. Rubio today and tell him we need a vote on Mary Barzee-Flores.
