OGLE COUNTY — On Wednesday afternoon, life-long Ogle County resident and Rochelle Police K9 officer Brian VanVickle officially announced his bid in the race for Ogle County Sheriff while standing on the patio of Maxson’s Restaurant along the Rock River.
“This place where we gather today holds special significance for Ogle County, here on the banks of the Rock River and in the shadow of Chief Blackhawk. These two Ogle County landmarks bring to mind a number of issues, which relate to my candidacy for the office of Sheriff,” he said.
“First, while there are many economic and political divides within Ogle County, the Rock River unites this county. As the Ogle County Sheriff I will work to unite all resources for the people of Ogle County.”
