VanVickle for Ogle sheriff

Chairman Gouker, to use your own words, you were “asleep at the wheel.” Brian VanVickle sat in the row right behind his wife and family along with other concerned citizens; the first two rows were full.

You’ve done a good job of sweeping the questions under the rug. The yearly audit only looks at money in and money out. The city of Dixon went through those same yearly audits for 20 years before Rita was caught.

I applaud Petrizzo and the few others for questioning the sheriff’s spending. Funny how it took new members coming on the board for this suspicious activity to be noticed.

You want to talk “sham and political stunts”? The board could have demanded to see the FOIA requests and turned over the information that was requested.

I will be voting for Brian VanVickle – the only candidate pushing for the truth. Time for someone to take over who has ethics and integrity.

There are excellent police officers standing behind Brian. Do you think they would risk their good reputations “slinging mud” if there wasn’t truth there? I think not.

Please cast your vote on March 18 for Brian VanVickle for Ogle County sheriff.
