"I know that Geric is the best choice for the 280th District Family Court because he can relate to almost everybody who comes through the door. He is a veteran, he has been a Finance Manager in the Business world, he has been a teacher, he was raised by a single mother and has been a co-parent for almost 30 years. He treats every person he meets with respect. What you see is what you get - he is a genuine person."

"I believe that Geric is the best candidate for Judge because he is experienced, dedicated, efficient, humble, fair, and compassionate. I have known the Tipswords for many years, and if I could describe Geric in one word, it would be genuine. He is one of the few individuals that is understanding yet does not put up nonsense. Adding to his many qualities is one of the most important attributes a judge should posses and that is Respect. Starting with his family, friends, and profession, Geric knows how to respect everyone and everything that surrounds him. He will hold this position with integrity and there is no doubt in my mind that he will be bringing these qualities to the 280th District Court"
