The race for coroner this year presents an opportunity to the voters of Wayne County to elect a highly qualified medical doctor with years of experience. The most populous parts of Pennsylvania make a medical background a requirement for the job of coroner. In rural areas like Wayne County, we don’t always have that luxury, but this year we do.
Dr. William Davis has experience in a number of areas that will serve him well as coroner. During his over 30 years of practicing medicine he has developed strong diagnostic abilities that enabled him to make accurate determinations about a person’s health. Experience and training have taught him what to look for and how to evaluate what is important in order to make the correct evaluation of a patient’s condition. These same diagnostic skills are necessary for a good coroner.
In addition, the practice of family medicine has frequently placed him with patients and families during their most trying of times. Learning to deal with death and dying comes with experience. Dr. Davis has helped families to deal with difficult situations with kindness and compassion.
Both candidates agree that the office of coroner is rather apolitical. The voters should choose based on the qualifications of the candidate. The citizens of Wayne County deserve the best.
