Vote VanVickle for Ogle sheriff

I write this letter to support Brian VanVickle for sheriff. After listening to all the candidates and reading their information, I can see we need someone in office who will be honest, and who understands this job will take a lengthy, full-time commitment to see the objectives of the department through.

If Brian is elected, he has the wisdom of enough years in both business and law enforcement (19 years), and the energy of a progressive leader. Since I’m a college student, I can compare it to education.

Although both very new and very veteran teachers have assets to offer, teachers I benefit the most from are ones who have been doing it for a little while, but not for so long they’re too close to retirement to take on the new challenges constantly coming in the field.

I think two of the three candidates are good people in this sheriff’s election, but there’s only one candidate actually prepared with both business and law enforcement experience who has the longevity to see all initiatives implemented.

Change takes time. Please elect Brian VanVickle, and let’s turn the morale and impression of the sheriff’s department in a positive direction. Vote March 18 for Brian VanVickle.
