Vote Drought for Ogle sheriff

Published: Tuesday, March 11, 2014 1:15 a.m. CDT

I write in support of Joe Drought for Ogle County sheriff. I have known Joe since he married my lifelong friend, Donna, more than 26 years ago, and know that he is a man of faith, character and integrity. Joe is respectful, resilient, and never one to compromise his beliefs. To know Joe is to know where he stands. 

I believe Joe would make an excellent Ogle County sheriff because he is wired to be a lawman. His years in the military taught him discipline, honor and duty, and solidified his belief in America and the laws that govern it.

I was once witness to Joe apprehending a fleeing suspect from the Rock Valley College campus, and the image of his determination and focus to catch the individual, while not endangering anyone around them, has never left me. 

With his military background, police training, and family commitment, Joe is the trifecta of candidates and worthy of your vote. Please support your county and neighbors by voting for the best candidate for Ogle County sheriff, Joe Drought.
