Racine County District Attorney Mike Nieskes has endorsed attorney Georgia Herrera for judge. She is running for the Circuit Court branch to be vacated by the retirement of Judge Stephen Simanek.
“As a former prosecutor Georgia Herrera is the only candidate with extensive experience in our criminal courts. Georgia has successfully prosecuted crime in every criminal court in Racine County. We need Georgia on the bench, she will be tough and smart about crime in our community and our neighborhoods,” said Mr. Nieskes.

She graduated from Park High School in 1978, and the University of Wisconsin college and Law School. She has the endorsement of law enforcement throughout the County.
