Coroner Bock announces re-election bid
March 11, 2014
Grand County Coroner Brenda Bock is declaring her candidacy for re-election to county coroner.
Bock has worked in the coroner's office for longer than 27 years, with earlier years as a volunteer and part-time deputy. She was hired as the full-time deputy in 1995, then went on to be named the chief deputy. She previously was a first responder and EMT with Grand County Emergency Medical Services before going on to get certified as a Colorado Death Investigator.
In 2002, Bock became a Nationally Registered Medicolegal Death Investigator through the American Board of Medicolegal Death Investigators. "My experience and education give me the qualifications necessary to be the Grand County Coroner," she said. "I'm also the past president in the Colorado Coroners Association, on the Legislation committee and am in charge of certifying all the coroners and deputy coroners in the state of Colorado.
"I feel like I'm a very solid resident of Grand County, having lived here for over 40 years."
Bock and her husband Tim have two sons who were born and raised in Grand County.
"I have a strong passion for helping people and feel like my knowledge and years of experience enable me to do a thorough job as Coroner," she said. "The job of Coroner is so important in determining the cause and manner of death. I take pride in the work I have done in the coroner's office and would be very honored to have your support in this re-election process."
