Prim’s proven record

To the Editor:

Some local politicians and political insiders are supporting the political insider candidate for McHenry County sheriff, while most of us who work in law enforcement support Bill Prim.

That should tell you something. I have no personal animus toward the current undersheriff, who seems to be a nice enough guy and a fairly competent manager. But one thing I’ve learned throughout the years is management skills and leadership abilities do not always go hand in hand.

The sheriff’s office desperately needs strong leadership right now, and Cmdr. Prim is exactly the right person to provide it. Prim has a proven record of outstanding leadership and solid credibility as a cop’s cop – someone who worked his way up through the ranks by being a good policeman, not by being a good politician. Please join me in voting for Bill Prim on March 18.
