Former Illinois 8th District Congressman, Joe Walsh (photo right), today threw his support behind Bill Prim, Republican Candidate for McHenry County Sheriff in 2014. Walsh represented McHenry County in the U.S. Congress from 2010-12 and still lives in there. Writing about Prim, Walsh said:
"Bill Prim is exactly what the McHenry County Sheriff's office needs - an honest, principled candidate who will fight for smaller government and fight for real reform of the Sheriff's office. It’s no secret that the Sheriff's office would benefit greatly from a healthy dose of good government, transparency, and reform. As the only fresh, outside reformer in this race, Bill is the only candidate capable of cleaning up the ‘good old boys, insider’ atmosphere that has permeated the office for far too long.
“Bill is a long time McHenry County resident, a great family man, has a sterling professional law enforcement career and believes fervently in personal liberty, gun rights, family values, and making government accessible to the entire community. He's a good guy and will provide a fresh new, inclusive voice to an office that desperately needs it."
