To the Editor:

Please join me in supporting Kevin Williams in our upcoming Republican primary for Kane County sheriff. As your Kane County circuit clerk, I know the importance of effective and efficient government service. I know, too, the absolute importance of electing candidates who stand strongest for integrity. Kevin Williams is that candidate. He is, in fact, the very personification of integrity. In the years I’ve known him, Kevin has never been anything less than honest, hardworking and extremely capable in the administration of his professional responsibilities. And those responsibilities have been many.

Kevin has spent more than 20 years in the sheriff’s department, rising to the rank of lieutenant. Along the way, he has served as a community policing specialist, a tactical gang crimes officer and an elderly service officer. His credentials are as impressive as his reputation for helping to maintain safe streets throughout Kane County.

Kevin also is involved with various nonprofit organizations throughout the community. He has, for example, volunteered with the Special Olympics.    

Based on his extensive law enforcement background and qualifications, his leadership and his outstanding overall performance, Kevin is clearly the right person for this very, very important elected position. 

I strongly support and endorse Kevin Williams in the Republican primary for Kane County sheriff. Please join me in voting for him on March 18.
