Vail Daily letter: Bettis for coroner

I have lived in Eagle for 15 years and have known Kara Bettis for over 10 years. I feel the need to write a letter based on the issues that are being thrown about during this year’s coroner election. In my opinion, the most compelling part of the job of coroner is, one, establishing the manner of death and, two, assisting families. I appreciate a coroner who is resilient enough to handle the painstaking details of that position yet respectful enough to not blast me for tissue and organ donations in the horrific event I lose a loved one (especially when not all deaths result in possible donation scenarios). Further, I would want anyone that has to deal with a loss to have the benefit of a coroner with the 12 years of experience and knowledge that Kara Bettis delivers. Eagle County should be honored to have such a strong, committed and caring person for our coroner. Kara Bettis truly cares for this community and I believe she has the tact, the dedication and the overwhelming ability to be the only choice for coroner this election. I urge you to research Kara’s track record. I am confident your decision will also be Kara Bettis for coroner.
