Why should you be elected
Working in my role as deputy Coroner, I have been privileged to gain experience and knowledge of how the office operates and functions.
I have had the opportunity to work closely with law enforcement to investigate various deaths of both natural and unnatural causes.
I have been afforded the great opportunity of partnering with emergency service agencies, the fire and health departments, and funeral directors who issue certificates of deaths.
My years of experience serving as a general surgeon has given me the clinical background necessary to fulfill the obligations of the Coroner in Trumbull County.
As a trauma surgeon, I also have extensive knowledge of traumatic injuries which is very advantageous when dealing with coroner cases.
Top three priorities
My goals for the Coroner’s office are to remain committed to delivering compassionate and quality care to our community.
I hope to upgrade our computer software to collect data necessary to meet the state requirements.
In addition, I would like to continue the close relationship with law enforcement and emergency services to provide a safe and secure environment for the general public.
Suicide and opioid addiction are two troublesome problems related to the coroner’s office.
I plan to lend the coroner’s office support to already established community programs related to opioid addiction and suicide prevention.
