Town of Waterford Police Chief Tom Ditscheit has endorsed attorney Georgia Herrera for judge. She is running against Atty. Gene Gasiorkiewicz in the April 6 election for the Circuit Court branch to be vacated by the retirement of Judge Stephen Simanek.
“I researched the candidates, and Georgia Herrera’s qualifications are superior," said Chief Ditscheit. "She served Racine County as a tough, no-nonsense criminal prosecutor. She knows western Racine County well, too, her husband’s family is from Burlington, and her husband Jeff Leavell grew up in Burlington... She’ll work hard to keep our streets safe.”
Herrera has many police endorsements; Gasiorkiewicz was favored by the Racine County Bar Association poll.
