Vote Drought for Ogle sheriff

We, the citizens of Ogle County, have the opportunity to vote for and elect a new sheriff on March 18. The man best qualified for this job is Joe Drought. 

Joe has the work experience to do the best job for our county. Joe has been in numerous forms of law enforcement for 32 years. 

I’ve known Joe and his family for 7 years. I don’t think I’ve met a more thorough, honest man.

I was on a committee with him at church. When decisions had to be made, choosing where to allocate money, a person for a position, planning for presentation speakers, or the next month’s agenda, Joe was the one who made sure we answered all the questions and discussed the pros and cons before making a decision. 

Joe Drought is a very honest, thorough, understanding, and considerate man. The office of sheriff is a local, important political position for our county. We, the voters, have the opportunity to elect an official with extensive law enforcement, leadership and budget experience. 

I will be voting for Joe Drought on March 18 and would ask that you choose the best man for the job. That man is Joe Drought.
