I am a husband and father. This is the reason that I support Lt. Mike Essig.
Essig is the only candidate that is actively involved in watching over the people and the roads of McLean County, day in and day out. Essig actively attends town meetings across the county, networking with and befriending us, proving that he is on the roads protecting us.
Lt. Essig is actively involved in the “Adopt-a-School” program, gaining the trust and confidence of our next generation.
Lt. Essig believes in personal contact with people and listening to our concerns.
Safety and security of my family and yours should be the most important factor in electing the next McLean County sheriff.
Hand-in-hand with the deputies and residents of McLean County, Lt. Essig is making the most of each of these opportunities and trying to improve our lives. He is not content to rely on what he did 5, 10 or 15 years ago.
I know that my college diploma does not make me a great father, a great employee or a great person. It is what we do every day at home, on the streets and in our jobs that makes or breaks us.
As an athlete and coach I learned to disregard those who tell me what they are going to do or what they are capable of doing. Those who are successful don't have to remind you of what they have accomplished; they amaze you with what they are accomplishing.
Mike Essig's determination to make a difference each day strengthens my support. At the end of the day, it is not about a history lesson - it is about actively providing safety and security for our children and families.
Join me, vote Essig.
