Elect Simonton as Lee sheriff

I support John Simonton for Lee County sheriff. This guy has the right stuff to be sheriff.

Just look him up: U.S. Navy Seals training, U.S. Army Delta training, more than 30 years in law enforcement, holding positions such as Illinois state trooper, deputy sheriff, and a commander over SWAT teams. He has a long list of commendations, and he is even a great guy.

It is a really good thing when we have someone with those qualifications running for sheriff. Let's elect John Simonton as Lee County sheriff.

Yes. Sterling and Dixon have had bans for years. It’s time for Rock Falls to impose a ban.
No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
