Both sheriff candidates to participate in forum

DIXON – Both Lee County sheriff’s candidates have confirmed they’ll participate in a candidate forum next week. 

Sheriff John Varga had already told the Sauk Valley Tea Party that he would attend the forum at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 25 at the Loveland Community House, 513 W. Second St.

Because of a website form glitch, the group’s invitations didn’t reach Varga’s opponent, John Simonton. After learning about the event, Simonton said he reached out to the tea party to express his interest in participating. 

The two are facing off in the March 18 Republican primary. 

David Hale, founder of the Rockford Tea Party and an opponent of Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Channahon, will also speak at the event.
