Vote Rock for state’s attorney

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

I am going on record to say that I support Mike Rock as our state’s attorney, and I believe he should be retained as our state’s attorney.

He has more than 20 years of legal attorney experience, 10 of those as prosecuting attorney for Ogle County.

As the former Ogle County Board chairman, I went to Mike many times for guidance for some matters in regard to county business. Mike always did his research on my question before giving me advice.

I also work as court bailiff during jury trials and have witnessed Mike as the prosecuting attorney. He has proved to be a firm but fair prosecuting state’s attorney in seeking the maximum sentence or fine, if warranted.

Ogle County has several thousands of dollars in unpaid fines that are past due. Mike has worked to bring more of those unpaid fines in to our treasurer, and has increased that amount from last year. Mike has a reputation for honesty and integrity. He always shows professionalism in his duties.

I urge you to cast your vote for Mike Rock to continue as our Ogle County state’s attorney.
