To the Editor:
I am writing to give my endorsement to Andrew Zinke, who is running for McHenry County sheriff.
I met Andy over 20 years ago when he was a patrol deputy, and I was a police officer. I have counted on Andy as a backup and knew he could always be depended on.
I have been a police officer over 34 years, and I’ve never known a more dedicated law enforcement professional than Zinke. When Andy was a K-9 handler, it was a welcome sight when they showed up on a call. Andy is a McHenry County native and has spent years serving the people of McHenry County.
It was a pleasure watching Andy’s career as he progressed from patrol officer to supervisor and to administration and command. He’s learned about the department by living it from the ground up.
I urge my fellow voters to give your support to Zinke.
