Why are you running for El Paso County Coroner?

I think it’s time for a change in coroner’s office. People aren’t getting the info that is supposed to be given to people. If you’re elected by the people it’s the people you serve. Not friends or special groups. I love Colorado and the good people of Colorado and think that we need to change the status quo.
