Wednesday, May 14, 2014. PATRICK E. JONES Reporting: The United States Congress today unanimously confirmed retired California Supreme Court judge Carlos R. Moreno as that country’s new ambassador to Belize.

Ambassador-designate Moreno replaces Vinai Thummalapally as the top US diplomat in Belmopan.  Ambassador-designate Moreno’s confirmation hearing started back in October of 2013 .

Among the highlights on Ambassador-designate Moreno’s resume is a lone votein November, 2008 to overturn Proposition 8, which was California’s initiative that overturned same-sex marriage.

A date for the presentation of his credentials to the Governor General at Belize House in Belmopan, marking the official start of his appointment has not yet been announced.

Until Ambassador-designate Moreno takes up his post, the U.S. Mission in Belize is currently being led by Chargé d’Affaires Margaret Hawthorne.
