Soror Camelia Valdes will be sworn in as the first Latina Passaic County, NJ Prosecutor

Soror Camelia M. Valdes, 37, a graduate of New Jersey’s prestigious Rutgers University Law School, will be sworn in on August 20, 2009 as the first Latina District Attorney of a county in the U.S.

Earlier this year, New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine designated the Dominican born attorney as the Passaic County Prosecutor. She was confirmed by the NJ State Senate based on her professional merits and judicial career.

Soror Valdes, who presided over New Jersey’s Hispanic Lawyers Association, is part of the new generation of Dominican and Latino immigrants in the United States, who’ve reached relevant positions few ever imagined.
