Sheriff candidate who cares

To the Editor:

Andrew Zinke, my brother, will be a terrific sheriff.

We have seen what is required of a successful leader. Andy possesses those qualities. He has high standards and expects the same from those around him. Honesty, integrity, intelligence, passion, empathy and a terrific work ethic are among his strengths.

In addition to his strength of character, Andy always has loved people. As a child, he canvassed his ethnic neighborhood, offering to help everyone he met. He never knew a stranger.

Andy has learned that a strong team is the most efficient path to success. He will never be a pompous egotist who’s only strategy is, “I will fix everything that is wrong.”

Those who propagate rumors for their own agenda, ignore facts and criticize others practice those traits continually and eventually end up applying their trade to everyone except themselves.

Elect Andrew Zinke. Give McHenry County a sheriff who cares.
