Sheriff’s Race Has Same Candidates As Past Two Elections

Posted by wlpo on November 1, 2010

The sheriff’s race in Bureau County is a case of déjà vu.

In both 2002 and 2006, Democrat John Thompson of Ladd won by beating Republican challenger Bill Rosenow of Sheffield.  InTuesday’s election, Thompson will again look to beat Rosenow for third term in office.

Thompson easily defeated Rosenow in 2006 by getting 67 percent of the vote.  One of the biggest differences between the two candidates is the question to build a new jail.  Thompson supports the idea, Rosenow is against it.
