Verbatim: Nagel to run for coroner

The campaign for Joel Nagel for Allen County Coroner issued the following news release today:

On Thursday, January 9th 2020, 9 a.m. Joel Nagel will file to run for Allen County Coroner at the Rousseau Centre, 1 E Main St, Ft Wayne.

My name is Joel Nagel and I am declaring candidacy for Allen County Coroner. I have been in healthcare for almost 22 years. I look forward to using my decade- plus experience of managing trauma victims with gunshot wounds, stabbings, and multiple other critical injuries. While in the operating room I gained first hand experience with life threatening injuries and managing complex cases. I participate in case analysis for cause of death similar to coroner cases and autopsies. This requires dedication, teamwork and a willingness to work with multiple professionals.

As a successful small business owner of 4 years managing approximately 50 health professionals, I understand the importance of fiscal responsibility, efficiency, accuracy, and leading a department. As the Allen County Coroner I look forward using my vast healthcare experience and management expertise to serve the people of Allen County by working with the pathologist who perform the autopsy’s, the deputy coroners who work hard to ensure accuracy, and various legal departments who promote justice.

The job of the Coroner is to be efficient, accurate and dead right!
