Lee County Sheriff candidates’ events near

DIXON – Two Republicans seeking their party’s nomination for Lee County sheriff will hold meet-and-greet events.

Lee County Sheriff John Varga will have an event from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Monday at the Dixon Elks Club, 1279 Franklin Grove Road. Also attending will be U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Channahon. He represents the 16th Congressional District, which includes Lee County.

Varga has been sheriff since 2006. His opponent in the March 18 primary election, John Simonton, will have two events.

The Dixon police officer and retired state police lieutenant will have coffee-with-the-candidate events from 7 to 8:30 a.m. Saturday at Huddle Cafe, 802 Main St., in Ashton, and from 7 to 8:30 a.m. Monday at Lincoln Cafe, 137 N. Elm, in Franklin Grove.

No Democrat is on the ballot, although the party may fill that vacancy after the primary election.
