Re-elect Varga as Lee sheriff

Lee County citizens have a big decision concerning their choice for sheriff. Sheriff John Varga is the candidate with the best qualifications, integrity and experience. 

Today's tough economic times and money constraints make it extremely difficult to provide quality law enforcement. Varga has proved he can handle this by increasing efficiency and manpower while maintaining a balanced budget.  

John is a huge asset for Lee County and the law enforcement community. I have worked with Sheriff Varga numerous times involving crimes committed in Lee and Whiteside counties that have resulted in arrests and convictions of many criminals.

Elections are surrounded by a candidate's empty promises and mudslinging to direct your attention from proven experience. The media also feeds into this frenzy, creating more controversy.  

During this election, Varga has been a man of high moral standards. He is running a clean race on his own merit and proven past record of effectiveness. 

Please join me in supporting Lee County Sheriff John Varga on March 18.

Note to readers: Kelly C. Wilhelmi is the Whiteside County sheriff.
