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.
