Waukegan, IL (PRWEB) January 09, 2012
Lake County voters will have several opportunities in the month of January to meet Mike Nerheim, Republican candidate for Lake County State’s Attorney, during his vigorous “It’s Time Tour”. In his efforts to personally meet and talk with Lake County residents about the importance of the State’s Attorney’s primary election on March 20th, Nerheim has several “meet and greet” receptions scheduled this month. His “It’s Time Tour” kicked off Saturday in Highland Park, Illinois and events are scheduled to continue throughout the county.
“Many Lake County voters may not realize the importance of the role of State’s Attorney. Residents should be knowledgeable about the crucial role the State’s Attorney’s office plays in upholding justice and protecting the safety of our community,” said Nerheim. “The ‘It’s Time Tour’ is the perfect opportunity to learn about the role of the State’s Attorney and meet the candidate with the most experience on both sides of the law and a vision for building a stronger, safer Lake County.”
Nerheim’s promise to Lake County: “As State’s Attorney, I will lead a team that will be fully committed to investigating and prosecuting not just certain areas of crime, but rather all types of criminal conduct—from traffic violations to felonies, guaranteeing that these crimes are prosecuted vigorously according to the law.”
