What are your biggest campaign issues/goals?
I believe we need office space in one of our county buildings to house the Coroner's Office records, personal belongings of the deceased, and to privately meet with families regarding autopsy reports or discuss any other needs they may have.
I also believe it is important to have information on hand for various counseling providers as well as post-mortem cleanup companies to give to the families. It is my hope that we can find a way to better assist the families left to cope with the emotional and physical aftermath of a loved ones death.
Why should someone vote for you?
I believe the people of Christian County should vote for me because I have the education and on the job experience needed to serve as their Coroner. Helping families through their most difficult times and finding them some closure is the way I feel I can best serve my community; I truly believe this is where my heart is.
