Letter: Kentucky coroner supports Tao Martinez

By on October 19, 2012

This coming November, the citizens of Kane County have an important decision to make in determining whom they want to be their coroner.

The coroner’s position is not to be taken lightly; the coroner needs to be honest, trustworthy, knowledgeable and willing to learn. The coroner also needs to be understanding and compassionate. I have been a coroner in Kentucky for 20 years, (as well as) past president of Kentucky Coroner Association and regional director of Kentucky Mass Incident Response Team. I have dealt with Tao Martinez on a professional and personal level. I believe he has all the qualities it takes to make your county a great coroner. He has a wiliness to learn and a compassion for people that is second to none.

I endorse Tao Martinez for Kane County Coroner.
