Letter to the Editor: Get to Know Kane County Coroner Candidate Tao Martinez

Retired McDonough County coroner endorses Tao Martinez for Kane County coroner in race against L. Robert Russell.

To Whom It May Concern:
I am writing to encourage all voters to become aware of one of your candiates for the office of . I am a recently retired county coroner after serving for 28 years as coroner. I have had four county coroners serving in two different counties since 1972. I served as president of the Illinois Coroners & Medical Examiners Association in 1992 and served more than 20 years as a board member. I have served on the Necropsy Board that oversaw the conduct of coroners offices acrss Illinois. I am a past member of the International Coroners & Medical Examiners Association. During this time, I have had the pleasure meeting and working with numerous coroners.

Each elected or appointed official operates his or her office in similar yet in different manners-yet meeting all the requirements specified by law. Some were republicans and some were democrats (pretty much a label). What I did find was that the good ones had a stong desire to serve the people, respect the law, hard working, empathetic caring people with a strong desire to continue learning—so they might better serve the people.

I have been fortunate to meet and get to know Tao Martinez and his family. I found Tao to be a good businessman, a wonderful family man, a caring person-generous to a fault upright citizen. He runs his bio-hazard business in the most professional manner and has made it his mission to assist those in need of his serves in a caring and professional way during often very difficult times. He has exhibited the  hunger to learn everything he can about the operation of the coroners office and developed a strong desire to serve others as their coroner.

If elected, I am confident Tao would operate the office in a professional and respectful manner. He has shown all the attributes that make a good coroner. I would encourage you to vote for Tao Martinez for the office of Kane County coroner.
