Franklin County race for coro­ner still un­de­cided

Tri-City Herald (Sunday) - - Local News - Cameron Probert: 509-582-1402; Twit­ter: @cameron­cprobert

Franklin County likely will have a new coro­ner this win­ter.

The gap be­tween chal­lenger Cur­tis McGary and in­cum­bent Coro­ner Dan Blas­del widened to 410 votes by the end of week. It still is one of the tight­est in the county, with McGary hold­ing 51 per­cent of the votes.

While the re­sults won’t be of­fi­cial un­til Nov. 27, only 302 bal­lots re­main to be counted, ac­cord­ing to the Franklin County Au­di­tor’s Of­fice.

Blas­del was the first per­son to be­come Franklin County coro­ner, earn­ing his spot af­ter two years as a death in­ves­ti­ga­tor with the pros­e­cu­tor’s of­fice.
