The Committee to Reelect Ken Toftoy provided the following news release:
A bi-partisan group of local County Coroners have come out to publicly endorse and support Kendall County Coroner Ken Toftoy in his re-election bid.
Jody A. Bernard (D-LaSalle), John W. Callahan (R-Grundy), Dennis J."Denny" Miller (R-DeKalb), and Peter A. "Pete" Siekmann (R-DuPage) have endorsed Toftoy. These four elected officials have over 60 years of combined experience and service as Coroners in neighboring counties.
"I appreciate the support of each of these respected Coroners. There is not a Republican or Democrat way to serve as Coroner," Toftoy said and then continued, "There is only a professional way. I am here for the families and emergency responders who deal with our office in times of crisis."
Toftoy has announced that this is his last campaign for public office. With support from Kendall County voters, he aims to finish some programs and initiatives he has started, including regional disaster planning with neighboring counties. The strong working relationships he has with area veteran coroners ensures this idea has a strong chance of becoming a reality.
