Vote Drought for Ogle sheriff

Published: Monday, Feb. 24, 2014 1:15 a.m. CST

With regard to the upcoming election for sheriff of Ogle County, my choice is firm for Joe Drought. I have known Joe since first working with him at the Ogle County Sheriff’s Department in 1990.

Joe was always an outstanding representative of the department as a deputy, K-9 officer, and detective. He has always been an individual who cares greatly for his profession as a police officer, his family and his community. These are exactly the same character attributes he will bring to the sheriff’s office.

What Ogle County is in great need of is the type of individual Joe represents, one who will never place himself first and will always make those around him his priority. It would have been an honor to work with Joe as sheriff, as I know he will restore the office of sheriff to the respectable law enforcement agency it once was.

You are the person who can make this happen by choosing Joe Drought for sheriff of Ogle County on March 18, and know that as you are casting your vote, you are taking part in making an effective and greatly needed change for the betterment of our Ogle County community.

Yes. Sterling and Dixon have had bans for years. It’s time for Rock Falls to impose a ban.
No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
