Well, no I don’t. But someone must, because I’ve seen bumper stickers for “Joe Blow for County Coroner” before.
Is this really an elected post? Well, I’m guessing it is, but I’m suprised. Is there any competition? Are there Democratic and Republican coroners (as a party, not just a personal view)? I would imagine you’d need to be a doctor to be elected to the post, but what does this guy do? And why do we need an elected head coroner instead of letting the hospitals do their own thing? Are private coroners under the control of this guy? And finally, does it really make sense to let the public vote on who the coroner will be when it’s no doubt going to be between a couple of guys no one has ever heard of?
