DeKalb Coroner Endorses Russell for Kane Post

He says there is only one choice on Nov. 6.

To the voters of Kane County:

As the Nov. 6 General Election nears, you will have the opportunity to choose your coroner. The voters of Kane County have two choices: Rob Russell or Tao Martinez.

Let’s examine the record of the two candidates:

* Only One has investigated complicated deaths.

* Only One will implement the “Team Approach” to death investigation securing the respect and cooperation of local, state and national agencies involved in the investigation of deaths.

* Only One understands that the office of coroner is an investigative / administrative position.

* Only One understands and has the knowledge of the budget process.

* Only One has committed to be a full-time professional coroner.

Both candidates deserve your consideration, but Only One deserves your vote.

I ask that you support and vote for Rob Russell.

 

Dennis J. Miller

DeKalb County coroner

Only one lied about his certifications and self proclaimed himself a lead homicide investigator when he knows he works in corrections as a jailer! only one has 5 disciplinary actions that he did not disclosed. Only one has no administrative experience because of his work in corrections. Only one deals with inmates and not families. Only one will cash to pensions! Only one has ran 3 times for 3 different offices in the last 3 years!! Only one is linked to crooked politicians!! and that is Rob Russell!!! Here are the articles to prove it http://thefirstward.net/2012/10/24/oh-what-a-tangle-web-we-weave-part-ii/ http://thefirstward.net/2012/10/20/oh-what-a-tangled-we-weave/

As a democrat, I usually vote straight ticket. Not this year. After Tao Martinez endorsed the Republican Chris Lauzen for County Chair, I'm voting for Rob Russell for Co Coroner....at least he is loyal to his friends

Of all the poor excuses to choose the best candidate for a public office that has to be about the worst I can think of. We want the best person for that office. His personal choice for County Board Chair are totally irrelevant to his ability to do the job.
