KANE COUNTY—Kevin Williams, Republican candidate for Kane County Sheriff, recently announced Aurora resident Pat Gengler as his choice to be undersheriff.
Gengler has over 17 years of service with the Sheriff’s Office and currently serves as the patrol lieutenant and public information officer. He has experience managing patrol operations, investigations, and internal affairs.
In his role as public information officer, he has been able to open the lines of communication between the Sheriff’s Office and the community. A cornerstone of Kevin’s campaign has been to build partnerships with the Kane County community, and having Pat on board with his public relations experience is a vital link to making it all work.
Gengler also has experience in labor management relations, serving as a past union vice president and as a member of the Sheriff’s negotiations team. Pat’s tireless work ethic and ability to “get things done” has earned him the respect of his co-workers within the Sheriff’s Office, as well as other agencies throughout Kane County.
According to Williams, it was never a secret that he wanted Pat to serve as his undersheriff, should the voters choose him to become the next sheriff of Kane County. He believes Gengler shares the same energy and passion for serving the citizens of Kane County, and also understands that the most important asset of the office are the employees, and in order to succeed the Sheriff’s Office must build a professional team that understands the needs of Kane County residents.
