'Change from establishment'

Print Article

Gary Groelle is the clear choice for the next Rock County Sheriff.

I do not follow political party lines, but I am willing to support someone that is truly the best candidate.

I have served as a first responder for over 20 years. I have seen firsthand Gary's leadership abilities. When the office of Emergency Management was placed under the Sheriff's Department control. Gary brought together all the stakeholders of Rock County for a smooth transition. Gary has affirmed throughout his campaign it is better when we work together. I believe this to be true.

Gary dedicated himself to the citizens of Rock County and the Rock County Sheriff's Department for over 36 years. For 32 years of his career was spotless. The last 4 years his personnel file was riddled with paper after he decided to run for sheriff in 2014. Gary was also stripped of most of his responsibilities and pushed out of sight.

Those actions should be construed as politically motivated and a personal attack from the current leadership. This current leadership thinks they are above the law and the rules do not apply to them as seen in the past few months in other news articles. Commander Knudson is part of that leadership as the 3rd in command. A vote for him would ensure the status quo.

The narcissistic leadership style of the last 12 years should no longer be tolerable. Therefore, Gary Groelle has earned my vote as a refreshing change from the establishment.
