Re-elect Harn as Ogle sheriff

Published: Saturday, March 8, 2014 1:15 a.m. CST

I write this letter in support of Sheriff Michael Harn for re-election on March 18. 

Sheriff Harn has gone beyond the call of duty for many people who needed him at the worst time in their lives during his 29 years of service to Ogle County. His deputies work very hard throughout the county, and many of us appreciate their stellar performance. 

When Harn ran for office 3 years ago, he made the citizens of Ogle County a promise that he would cut the expenses of his office. What Harn has accomplished in 3 short years is remarkable. He has been under budget, a budget the board rightfully slashed when he took office because of our bad economy.

The $1.3 million he has returned to our county is real money, collected from taxpayers. I am a longtime business owner and resident of Ogle County, and I appreciate a job well done.

Sheriff Harn, you have done well by all of us. On March 18, my vote will be for you, Sheriff Michael Harn.
