Coroner Candidates Discuss Office Management, Grief
Check out the candidate questionnaires from Republican Ken Toftoy and Independent Mike Dabney.
The Kendall County coroner race is pitting a long-time incumbent (and chairman of the Kendall County Republican Central Committee) against a relative political newcomer.
It's not the first time they've squared off, though.
Mike Dabney, of Oswego, ran against incumbent Ken Toftoy, of Yorkville, in the 2008 Republican primary for coroner. Dabney got 3,157 votes to Toftoy's 6,561, which means Toftoy got 67.5 percent of the votes, according to the Kendall County Clerk's website.
For some perspective, the county had 58,570 registered voters in February 2008, with only 9,718, or about 16.6 percent, participating in the Republican primary for coroner, according to the county clerk. No Democrats filed for the primary race in 2008.
