Vote Drought for Ogle sheriff

I first met Joe Drought last summer after the Leaf River Daze parade. My wife, Wendy, a retired Ogle County sheriff’s employee, introduced us.

She previously worked with Joe when he was an Ogle County sheriff’s deputy.  She was familiar with his work ethic and commitment to his position. I must admit that I was reluctant to get involved again with any candidate.

However, with Joe being a fellow Army veteran, I was willing to listen to his plans and ideas. I immediately recognized that he has a plan and the ability to implement that plan. Joe is committed to bringing back the high standards that the sheriff’s office must be held to.

Joe’s background shows that he has the leadership skills and experience required to run the sheriff’s office. He has a proven track record in law enforcement and management. Joe has the toughness to run the sheriff’s office and still be the gentleman that he is.

Please join Wendy and me in voting for Joe Drought for Ogle County sheriff on March 18.
