Elect Drought sheriff of Ogle

In the primary election March 18, we’ll have the opportunity to elect a sheriff with the experience, leadership, integrity, and professionalism to run the sheriff’s department appropriately. This person is Joe Drought. 

We’ve known Joe for many years as members of the First Presbyterian Church of Rochelle and witnessed firsthand Joe’s ability to lead, take command, and be very decisive in making decisions. He’s a very compassionate and caring Christian man and lives his life each day serving the Lord and fellow citizens.

Joe has trained many area police officers on how to protect our children and school staff from active shooters. He has adapted this training to give the teachers and staff in our school districts tools with which to protect themselves and our children.

The office of sheriff should be run by someone who has law enforcement administration experience and proven leadership skills; someone we can trust to make good decisions, act professionally, and who will serve and protect the people of Ogle County. For those reasons, we will be supporting Joe Drought for Ogle County sheriff.

We urge you to compare all three candidates, and you will likely reach the same decision.
