To the Editor:
I am writing this letter to say thank you to my mentor, Donald Kramer. Don has been a great mentor to me for the past 26 years, giving me advice and encouragement in my professions, both probation and my law enforcement careers.
I joined law enforcement to help people, and I had a great opportunity to work with Don Kramer when he was the head of Central Kane County TRIAD. We worked with seniors within the community to prevent scams and fraud against seniors. I felt he had the same passion and empathy to work with seniors as I have. The time we worked together in helping seniors was a highlight in my career.
I believe Don Kramer is the only candidate qualified to be sheriff. He has great morals as a Christian, education – i.e. master's degree in criminal justice – and 30 years of law enforcement experience, with a majority of that as an administrator within the Kane County Sheriff's Office.
I think Don Kramer will make a great sheriff of Kane County.
