Colorado Coroner Up for Re-election Offers Cool Campaign T-Shirt
I can't say that I know many county coroners in Colorado. I am sure, however, that I have never met a county coroner running for re-election that had such a cool-looking logo.
Meet El Paso County Coroner Dr. Leon Kelly
Meet Leon Kelly, M.D. He is a forensic pathologist who has been the county coroner in El Paso county since 2019. Have you ever met a county coroner who had their own logo? Was it as cool as this one?
How Do I Score Dr. Kelly's Cool Coroner T-Shirt?
Dr. Kelly is issuing one of his re-election campaign T-shirts to anyone who makes a $75 contribution to his campaign. You can order the shirt, and make a contribution with this link. He will be running against write-on candidate Dr. Rae Ann Weber who is running as a “freedom doctor” who claimed she would never support COVID-19 mandates.
Dr. Kelly is currently the President of the Colorado Coroners Association. His opponent Weber, if elected, would need to complete 40 hours of training for new coroners, and become a certified death investigator.
How Busy is the Coroner's Office in El Paso County Colorado?
The El Paso County Colorado office of forensic pathologists, including Dr. Kelly, finished 1293 autopsies in 2020 alone which included 920 local deaths according to the coroner's office. Talk about a busy place!
