Moffat County deputy enters the race for county coroner

CRAIG — A third candidate has announced his intention to run for Moffat County coroner. Alec Brown, a patrol deputy with the Moffat County Sheriff's Office, has entered the race for coroner.

"I believe as the coroner you meet people at the worst point in their life," he said in his letter of intent. "Whenever we deal with the passing of a loved one the situation must be conducted with the utmost compassion and respect. I believe I would offer that compassion."

If elected, Brown said he would be a full-time coroner. He added he believes he could help Moffat County.

Brown is soon to retire from his position at the sheriff's office and has been a resident of Moffat County for 39 years.

Brown is running against incumbent Kirk McKey and current Deputy Coroner Jesse Arthurs.
