Elect Drought as Ogle sheriff

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

On March 18, I will be casting my vote for Joe Drought as Ogle County sheriff. If you look at the candidates on paper, Joe stands out as the obvious choice on his experience alone.

In addition, Joe’s integrity is of the highest standard. Joe is a man who has served his family, country and community his entire life. He’s given freely of himself for the benefit of others.

Many years ago, I attended a presentation that Joe gave to a group of legal secretaries promoting women’s safety. I learned quickly this was just the tip of the iceberg for Joe. Joe conducts all types of training and self-defense classes regularly, often on his own personal time.

Joe wouldn’t enter politics lightly or for self-promotion. He put an incredible amount of thoughtful prayer and reflection into making such an important decision. He knows that he is up for and qualified to do the job that needs to be done, which is to serve his county – Ogle County. 

Please research these candidates for yourself. You, too, will see clearly who has the experience and integrity to serve as Ogle County sheriff.
