Ron is proud to offer his multitude of skills running for Arapahoe County Coroner. As per Colo. Rev. Stat. Ann. § 30-10-60, as an elected official, Coroners are required by state law to determine the cause of death for those who pass suddenly, violently or in an unexplained manner. I pledge to the people of Arapaho County, that no unexplained death of any individual will go without a though investigation.
As your candidate for Coroner, I will stand for the following principles, “I represent the living but speak for the dead.” We are living in very challenging times. I wish to unify with one another to gain a firm understanding surrounding serious medical issues that have affected so many lives. We must elucidate the root cause of deaths associated with global COVID-19 pandemic.
