Letters to the Editor

Vote VanVickle for Ogle sheriff

I write this letter in support of Brian VanVickle. I have heard him speak several times and like his ideas, and the fact that he is willing to restructure the Ogle County sheriff’s office to get deputies back into the communities where they are needed.

I live in Creston, and residents do not see the presence of deputies in our community. I would like to see deputies patrolling our village.

I also believe that Brian VanVickle has the necessary qualities to be Ogle County’s next sheriff. Brian is a member of the Rochelle High School board. Brian has a business degree, and is finishing a public administration degree and a secondary degree in emergency management. That will strengthen his knowledge and prepare him for the administrative duties that are a part of being sheriff. Brian is also a Rochelle police officer and K9 handler.

I have lived in Creston since 1948 and have served in various elected and appointed positions where I have served the general public. I believe that those experiences help me to know who will make a great sheriff.

Please join me and vote for Brian VanVickle on March 18.
