It is extremely important to have a complete and thorough understanding of what role your elected officials and their offices have in county government. Understanding their roles and responsibilities allows the citizens of DuPage County to be informed, after all, the operations of county government are very expensive.
It is my belief, the Coroner should be transparent about its operations. The Coroner should release monthly reports outlining the activities the coroner’s office was involved in during the prior month. The coroner should release an end of year report that summarizes the past year, provides a vision for the future of the coroner’s office and any expected challenges that maybe on the horizon for the office.
In addition to providing the public with timely and relevant information regarding its daily operations, I also believe there should be a public education campaign originating from the coroner’s office to provide the public with the knowledge and skills necessary to combat preventable causes of death. Programs such as, but not limited to Stop the Bleed, CPR/First Aid, Narcan Programs and EPI Pen Programs should be readily available through cooperative efforts of the coroner’s office.
It is my promise to ensure that information regarding the operations and financial state of the Coroner’s Office is readily available to the citizens of DuPage County. I will work to establish partnerships to provide life saving education to the public.
