Judge Lisa Neubauer of Racine, who was appointed to the Appeals Court in 2007, District 2, which includes Racine County, said, in a press release:
“I know Georgia. She is the right person for this important job. Her broad experience and good judgment are needed on the bench. Georgia has the experience and temperament to be an excellent judge. As a prosecutor, court commissioner, and attorney in private practice, Georgia knows her way around all of the Racine County courtrooms. She will be fair, firm and consistent, and will manage the court room effectively. She will serve us well as Circuit Court judge.”Judge Paul Higginbotham, a District 4 Appeals Court justice in Madison since 2003, said in a press release:
"I know Georgia Herrera well. She has great experience and judgment, and the highest ethical standards. I worked with Georgia in an early part of her career, when we were trying cases for Milwaukee’s Legal Aid Society. She tried many cases to the jury and excelled at it. She knows the court room well. I know she continued that work as a criminal prosecutor for Racine County, trying hundreds of cases and helping protect the public from crime. She opened her law practice, and then began her lengthy service as circuit court commissioner, preparing herself for the duties of circuit court judge. I know, as a former Dane County Circuit Court judge and now judge on the Wisconsin Court of Appeals, that her work as court commissioner is an invaluable experience to help prepare a judge to serve at the Circuit Court. I strongly support Georgia Herrera’s candidacy for Judge, and urge all of Racine County to vote for her.”For those keeping score, four Racine County Circuit Court judges endorsed Gasiorkiewicz on Monday; three endorsed Herrera last Thursday; and one more endorsed Gasiorkiewicz last Thursday. Three are yet to be heard from.
