Bryan Baca was born and raised in Bushnell. He now lives in Macomb. He is the only candidate of the three who does not currently work at the sheriff's office. But he said he has worked with most of the employees on staff from his time as a K-9 trainer and has the experience necessary in law enforcement and corrections to lead the department.
The three Republican candidates running to replace McDonough County Sheriff Rick VanBrooker spoke with Tri States Public Radio about the release of 911 audio recordings from last April that detail a reckless driving complaint against the Sheriff.
A third Republican has announced he wants to be McDonough County's next sheriff. Bryan Baca lives in Macomb and works for the Illinois Department of Corrections as the Operations Warden at the Illinois River Correctional Center in Canton.
