[February 22, 2014]  Aaron Schock, 18th Congressional District representative, announced his endorsement Thursday of Logan County Sheriff Steve Nichols for a fourth and final term.

"I have deep admiration and profound respect for Sheriff Nichols and the way he has run the Logan County Sheriff’s Department for the past 12 years," said Schock, R-Peoria. "His experience is unparalleled, and his leadership and investment in Logan County has translated to safety and better overall quality of life for its citizens."

Nichols has a 35-year career in law enforcement and investigative experience. He oversees a department of nearly three dozen employees and successfully sought grants that help protect citizens. He has negotiated multiple police contracts with positive resolutions. He consistently produces balanced budgets that have translated into savings for taxpayers.

Nichols has led the charge to create the Logan County Drug Suppression Unit that has stymied illegal manufacturing and distribution of narcotics in Lincoln and Logan County.
