To Whom It May Concern:
I am wrting to encourage all voters to become aware of one of your candiates for the Office of Kane County Coroner. I am a recently retired county coroner after serving for 28 years as coroner. I have had four county coroners serving in two different counties since 1972. I served as President of the Illinois Coroners & Medical Examiners Association in 1992 and served over 20 years as a board member.. I have served on the Necropsy Board that oversaw the conduct of coroners offices across Illinois. I am a past member of the International Coroners & Medical Examiners Association. During this time I have had the pleasure meeting and working with numerous coroners.
Each elected or appointed official operates his or her office in similar yet in different manners-yet meeting all the requirements specified by law. Some were republicans and some were democrats (pretty much a label). What I did find was that the good ones had a stong desire to serve the people,respect the law, hard working, empathetic caring people with a strong desire to continue learning-so they might better serve the people.
I have been fortunate to meet and get to know Tao Martinez and his family. I found Tao to be a good businessman, a wonderful family man, a caring person-generous to a fault upright citizen. He runs his bio-hazard business in the most professional manner and has made it his mission to assist those in need of his serves in a caring and professional way during often very difficult times. He has exhibited the hunger to learn everything he can about the operation of the coroners office and developed a strong desire to serve others as their coroner. If elected, I am confident Tao would operate the office in a professional and respectful manner.He has shown all the attributes that make a good coroner. I would encourage you to vote for Tao Martinez for the Office of Kane County Coroner.
