The lone man running for Winnebago County Board Chairman received a big endorsement Wednesday.
Sheriff Gary Caruana announced his support for Frank Haney at an event at Giovanni’s. Haney told Eyewitness News Caruana had a positive meeting with Interim Rockford Police Chief Pat Hoey on Wednesday about collaborative strategies between the two departments.
“I want to champion that idea, that we’re sitting down and all the right people are at the table, having those discussions,” said Haney.
Haney is running unopposed in next Tuesday’s primary, after current Board Chairman Scott Christiansen dropped out of the race last month.
