BOSTON (AP) - The second of three nominees to fill upcoming vacancies on Massachusetts’ highest court is heading to Beacon Hill for a review by the Governor’s Council.

The eight-member council is scheduled to hold a confirmation hearing for David Lowy at the Statehouse on Wednesday. The council has the final say on all judicial nominations.

Republican Gov. Charlie Baker nominated Lowy to the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court. The 56-year-old Marblehead resident has served as an associate justice in the Massachusetts Superior Court for the past fifteen years.

Lowy was nominated to the Superior Court by the late Republican Gov. Paul Cellucci in 2001.

Baker has also nominated Superior Court judges Kimberly Budd and Frank Gaziano to fill vacancies on the seven-member high court.

Gaziano was unanimously approved last week by the council.
