Sheriff’s Candidate Groelle to Donate Fundraising Money
I was recently made aware of the fact that meat raffles and 50/50 raffles are not permissible campaign fundraising activities. The campaign is taking full responsibility for this misunderstanding, and the campaign will be donating those raffle contributions to local nonprofits organizations. The campaign hopes that this brings more awareness and education to others in local elections. We are running a “Grass Roots” campaign with neighborhood volunteers. I take full responsibility for all campaign activities and we are remedying the situation. By the time we complete our donations, we will have donated approximately $2200.
So, as my primary election date approaches, I want to devote 100% of my time to the campaign, meeting and listening to the voters about their concerns and ideas. I am announcing my retirement from the Sheriff’s Office effective on July 9, 2018. I am extremely excited and energized even more, knowing that this additional time will be very beneficial to me, my “Team” and the voters. I look forward to seeing everyone at the Dairy Breakfast this weekend, the holiday parades fast approaching and my next fundraiser at the Anchor Inn in Newville on Sunday, July 22, 2018. Have a great summer! Go Team Groelle!!
Gary L. Groelle for Sheriff
