A video from the Bill Prim for Sheriff campaign just surfaced.
You can see it on YouTube.
Here’s what Prim says:
“The citizens of McHenry County deserve a Sheriff they can trust.
“I’m not running for Sheriff because I’ve worked there for twenty years or related to someone.
“I’m a former police commander with twenty-seven years experience in law enforcement.
“I’ve worked on large scale drug and money laundering investigations and previously worked as a gang crimes specialist with the Northwest Suburban Gang Task Force.
“More importantly, I’ve helped run an efficient police department and earned numerous awards during those decades of service.”McHenry County is my home. I’ve lived in the same house for over twenty years. I’ve raised my family here, volunteered for the Boy Scouts and coached soccer.
“I think McHenry County is worth fighting for.
“I don’t have to tell you our taxes are too high.
“At a time when everyone else must do more with less the Sheriff’s Office is going in the wrong direction.
“We need a Sheriff who respects the taxpayers.
“Too much time and money is being wasted at the Sheriff’s Office fighting with other office holders.
“County government is not supposed to be a playground for big egos.
“Taxpayer money wasted on settling personal scores is wrong.
“The way I see it, I’d rather see assessments go up on criminals, rather than taxpayers.
“Those resources go to pay for police equipment and training.
“We also have massive untapped resources in this county. People who could volunteer and would, if someone would only ask and build the right framework.
“I’ll put those resources to work.
“I’m new to McHenry County politics, but I have the right experience and qualifications to serve the county well.
“Please vote for the man who would make the best Sheriff, not the best politician in the March 18th Republican Primary.”
