Elect Drought Ogle sheriff

Joe Drought will be an excellent sheriff for Ogle County. I know Joe personally, and he's a good man, a family man, a man of both principle and compassion. But it's the variety of his successful record and experience that sets him apart. 

Joe was in the U.S. Military Police Corps for 9 years, serving as a patrolman, supervisor, investigator, and K-9 handler. He was a deputy in the Ogle County Sheriff's Department for more than 3 years, so he's well aware of the duties and responsibilities.

He's been the chief of police at Rock Valley College for more than 17 years, showing he can lead and direct a full department and staff, both with respect to personnel relations and the handling of financial/budget matters. 

I believe the experiences above will lead to the following. Joe will earn and maintain the respect of the entire Ogle County Sheriff's Department deputies and staff. Joe will be respected as a leader of the force, handling the department's financial affairs openly and accurately. He will be a sheriff we're all proud of. 

Please, first and foremost, consider his experience and qualifications. Then vote for Joe Drought for Ogle County sheriff on March 18.
