And so it begins. Today we all turn in our nominating petitions to be placed on the 2018 ballot. I turned in 838 sheets representing more than 8000 voters who have signed my petition to run for the Office of DuPage County Sheriff. My team did it the right way and did it clean. This is something I cannot take credit for. So many people helped on so many days. I cannot express enough how thankful I am for all of you who have supported me throughout this process. I have led the charge for 20 years on Sheriff Zaruba’s petition drives and this one even eclipsed his largest gathering by far. I really don’t know what to say other than thank you. Thank you all for believing in me enough to move a mountain like this. I feel truly blessed by God to be surrounded by so many great people like you!
