Letters to the Editor
Steve Hepperly has the experience and knowledge to be our next sheriff. Steve has been active in law enforcement for 35 years, with 28 of them serving Winnebago County. He has served in many areas over his career, starting out as a Reserve Officer, than on to Corrections Officer/Jail, to being a police officer, then Deputy Sheriff.
He has done patrol, overseen sex offender registry and prescription drug programs, and is active with the Winnebago Task Force.
Steve and his wife, Michelle, raised a family, while being active in the community on other ventures as well.
Steve shows great leadership and integrity in every aspect of his law enforcement career.
Please join me on Nov. 3 and vote Hepperly for Sheriff.
I am proud to share my reflections on Steve Hepperly in his campaign for Sheriff of Winnebago County. I have known the Hepperly family for many years and was fortunate to work with their children in school and church.
I have a great deal of respect for Steve. I have witnessed him work with our youth county-wide, as well as older members of our community and church. He models a life of service to others.
Nationally, law enforcement has had a tough last couple of years. The county needs people with Steve’s character to instill confidence and trust for all of law enforcement. Steve’s personality is one of respect for those he interacts with and at the same time, he is a strong believer in the rule of law and justice.
Steve has built relationships with citizens from all corners of Winnebago County and is well-known for his focus on what is best for everyone involved in each challenging situation, and has a strong commitment to family, faith, and community.
