One of Livingston County’s hottest primary elections in the Aug. 7 election is for 53rd Circuit Court judge. Four non-incumbent candidates are vying for the position, which is transitioning from a District Court seat (currently held by Judge Carol Sue Reader, who is prohibited from running again due to age restrictions) to a Circuit Court seat.
The four candidates seeking to become Livingston County’s newest judge are Dennis Brewer, Monica Copeland, L. Suzanne Geddis and Tara Pearson. The top two finishers in the primary will advance to the general election in November.
The pre-primary campaign filing statements were due last Friday, and they contained some interesting information.
Geddis reported raising the most money – $36,533. All the contributions were made by her husband, William McCririe. No other contributors were listed on her filing. Geddis reported having $0 cash on hand.
