Vote Drought for sheriff

It's imperative to vote in the March 18 primary, as there are important positions to be determined. One of these is the three-way race for Ogle County sheriff.

During my 24 years at the Ogle County Sheriff's Office, I had the privilege to work with Joe Drought. He has the experience and qualifications to lead the sheriff's office to an operation with transparency and accountability.

Joe has more than 30 years of law enforcement experience, including 9 years of military police service, attaining the rank of staff sergeant, and more than 17 years of administrative and business management experience as chief of police at Rock Valley College.

He is hands-on in every aspect of the college police department, including dealing with union contracts, as our sergeants, corporals, deputies and correctional officers, among others, are union workers. 

Joe is far and above the most highly qualified in law enforcement administration. He is an instructor and consultant in numerous fields, thus giving him the needed experience to run our sheriff's office with integrity and fairness.

Visit "Joe Drought for Sheriff' website and Facebook page. We need a change that brings experience, integrity and transparency. Please make an educated vote on March 18.

Note to readers: Al Koper is a retired sergeant.
