16 Years serving champaign county as coroner

"Would you hire your plumber to perform your root canal?" 

"Would you hire your accountant to perform your heart surgery?"

"Would you elect someone with no prior experience or knowledge to investigate the sudden unexpected death of your loved one?" 

Why vote for Duane Northrup?

When it comes to performing the duties of the coroner, 

knowledge & experience really does matter!
