Vail Daily letter: Franciose for coroner
I am writing to endorse Sue Franciose for Eagle County coroner. I am a local OB-GYN MD, and have known the candidate for many years. My professional life and my personal life have been full of many losses, as have many of your lives. I now have a diploma from Colorado State University (Fort Collins) in death and grief studies. I have learned how important a medically knowledgeable, kind and compassionate coroner is to so many. I find it of such importance that I am writing this letter. The coroner, our first responders and our sheriff and police department are on the front lines of tragedy. How a coroner responds to the families and loved ones, as well as to the first responders, law enforcement and medical professionals, is crucial. I most firmly believe that the best candidate for Eagle County coroner is Sue Franciose, and I wish to share that opinion. I sincerely hope most of you never have to personally deal with the coroner’s office, but if you do, I hope it is under the direction of Sue Franciose.
