Vote Drought for Ogle sheriff

Published: Friday, Feb. 28, 2014 1:15 a.m. CST

Being longtime residents of rural Oregon, we are naturally very interested in the health of our government, especially that of Ogle County.

For quite some time, we thought we had one of the best sheriff’s offices around, but now it’s in need of repair. It is our belief that we are in dire need of a change.

For the first time in a long time, there is a three-way race for sheriff. Someone with a great amount of experience in police work, budgets and administration, will be needed to bring integrity and much-needed transparency to that office.

With the experience Joe Drought has gathered during his 30 years in the field of law enforcement, we feel he is the best choice and should be given a chance to guide the department. The March 18 primary will decide that office’s fate.

Please vote, and vote intelligently. Vote Joe Drought for Ogle County sheriff.
