Your views: Groelle's leadership, support help make fair a success
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Capt. Gary Groelle for his ongoing support of the Rock County agricultural community and the 4-H program.
My family has had the privilege of knowing Groelle for many years, having met him through his work with the Rock County 4-h Fair in his capacity with the Rock County Sheriff's Office. It was always such a pleasure to watch him work. He seemingly could take any difficult situation and handle it with ease, contributing to the fair running smoothly.
Groelle is blessed with the great ability to diffuse tense situations involving many people with strong personalities and even stronger opinions. Through his leadership style, Groelle worked with the other deputies and fair officials and ensured a well-run event year after year.
Groelle has been an advocate throughout the years, not just in an election year, for the 4-H program and what it has to offer our youth. His children and family have long been involved with the 4-H community. It was fun to see him there bidding on livestock, and his purchase made a memorable impact on the life of a young lady in the 4-H program. His personal financial support of a youth program that often goes unnoticed until fair time speaks volumes about what kind of man he is.
My family's vote is for Capt. Gary Groelle for sheriff on Aug. 12.
