Chris Mitchell introduced Kris Schmidt, candidate for Whiteside County Sheriff and Rachel Crandall his campaign manager.   Kris told us about his transition to Sterling from DeWitt, Iowa in 2001 and in 2009 he was promoted to Sergeant.  Two big problems facing Whiteside County are Opiod usage and a need for continued training/education.  Kris is married with 6 children and is passionate about his service in law enforcement.  
Thanks for a great program.
