If elected as your Coroner, I will Rebuild Trust, Restore Integrity and Reinforce Accountability. I will ensure that county's death investigations are science-based, autonomous and kept separate from county politics, because I believe in justice and equality for everyone. Previous Coroner retired 2 months before elections, so he can appoint his Deputy as an Interim Coroner. He bypassed all Will County voters and took away people's power to vote and elect Coroner through elections.
In 2019, Coroner’s annual budget was $2,011,103.94 and 51% was spent on Total Salaries, which is $1,029,653.76. Only $850 was utilized for Training and Continuing Education, which is 0.04 %, not even full 1%. It costs $850 to train 1 employee and with 17 full time employees at the Coroner’s office, I will make sure all of them are properly trained by allocating 1% of the budget, which is $20,000 annually, for Training and Continuing Education. I would also seek additional grant funding for the Coroner’s office and decline to take pension as an added cost-saving measure.
