Open letter to Racine County Citizens
I would first like to thank all the Racine County citizens who voted for me in the recent judicial election, especially my core committee members who devoted countless hours on my behalf. I take your vote of confidence as your trust in me to administer justice independently and with dignity and respect. I will not breach this trust.
I also want to urge the ending of countless Internet messages directed at my recent opponent. The statements that I have read are at best classless and at their worst discriminatory and defamatory. I believe such statements would not be made face to face to my opponent and it is only the apparent anonymity of the Internet that serves as a forum for such vile and unnecessary comments.
I ask that now we direct our attention to making Racine a better community in which all of us can live and raise children.
Gene Gasiorkiewicz was elected to the Racine County Circuit Court bench on Tuesday, defeating Georgia Herrera.
