Mike Dabney is circulating petitions to run as an independent.
Editor's note: This was updated Wednesday evening with comments from Toftoy. A 52-year-old Oswego firefighter and former deputy coroner is running against Coroner Ken Toftoy as an independent. Mike Dabney, of Oswego, is circulating petitions to run again after an unsuccessful bid against Toftoy in the 2008 Republican primary.

Kendall County Coroner Ken Toftoy maintained property and finances for a Boulder Hill man who died without any nearby next-of-kin.
For about two months, Kendall County Coroner Ken Toftoy drove to Boulder Hill a few times a week to feed a tank full of fish. He assumed that rather unusual duty because the fish’s former owner was in a rather unusual state of limbo: The retired draftsman/engineer left no nearby next-of-kin when he died of natural causes on Aug. 29, his 72nd birthday.
