Carol Davy of LaPorte wrote to the local paper:
"Thumbs-up to all the residents who attended the public hearing for the retention of judges Terence Gilmore, Jolene Blair and Gregory Lammons of the 8th Judicial District. These brave, sincere, pain-stricken residents who told of their experiences of injustice at the hands of these judges came to this hearing to be heard, seen and to give touching testimonials of their personal agony, suffering and emotional distress. They are Sandy Lemberg, Rosemary Van Gorder, Lee and Kathleen Winfield, Colleen Masters, Betty Schneider, Ruth Craft and many other anonymous, ordinary residents of Larimer County who stepped up to the plate. Bless you all, each and every one of you."
