Mastroianni nomination approved by Senate panel

WASHINGTON (WWLP) – The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee has approved Hampden County District Attorney Mark Mastroianni’s nomination to become a federal judge.

His nomination was approved Thursday morning on a voice vote by the 18 member panel. The nomination now goes to the full Senate for a vote.

President Obama nominated Mastroianni to serve as a U.S. District Court Judge in Springfield to replace retiring Judge Michael Ponsor.
