Republicans make Coroner nomination
On July 2, The Elmore County Central Republican Committee met to choose the nominees for the County Coroner position.
Last month the committee met and chose three people to send before the Elmore County Commissioners to choose an appointee. The matter in which the process was done caused a controversy within the committee and community as it became apparent that the most qualified person had not been afforded the chance to speak of her experience.
The commissioners were forced to choose between the nominees who had been placed in front of them and after being surprised with one of the nominees saying she would not serve in the position and another one not showing up for a hearing Barry Peterson was chosen as the only person left.For the full story, pick up a copy of the Mountain Home News or click on this link to subscribe to the newspaper's online edition.
