A Constituent for Coroner

My name is Stacie Nevares and I am running for the position of San Mateo County Coroner. As a native of San Mateo County, I have striven to locate a platform that would best utilize my strengths, experience, and diligence to best serve the community at large. The position of San Mateo County Coroner would be such a platform, as I have earned a legal studies degree from UC Berkeley and have been employed with the County Coroner’s Office for the past two and a half years. The focus of my campaign will encompass prioritizing the care of the deceased while assisting the living by fortifying investigative research to determine appropriate cause of death in a timely manner, instituting numerous death and dying support groups to assist families dealing with bereavement, and increasing the number of public speakers in the community to assist school-aged children in identifying negligent behaviors that may result in death.

Losing a loved one is a painful experience that requires sensitivity and empathy on the part of all persons involved. In order to bring closure to each case swiftly, overseeing the investigators thorough examination in determining an impartial cause of death or possible criminal involvement, as well as a meticulous inspection at the scene of the death to gather relevant data will be a priority. Sharing our various findings with the California Occupational Health and Safety Association and numerous review committees will ultimately aid in reducing the peril of unforeseen or aberrant death additionally aiding to decrease work related hazards. I plan to implement my previous experiences with loss to provide respect and dignity to all cases falling under our jurisdiction.

When a death occurs in one’s family, each living individual experiences various stages of loss. In order to deal with grief in a healthy manner, I plan on instituting and enhancing the number of bereavement groups and increase available literature and access to such groups for social support in our community.

Finally, I plan on increasing the number of public speakers in the community to assist school-aged children in identifying negligent behaviors that may result in death. By instilling primary preventive measures in the community, school-aged children will be less apt to involve themselves in destructive activities by being conscious of such conduct.

I will strive to serve the community with diligence and respect. I am committed to excellence in all my work capabilities and to the work performance of my staff. Please accept my deepest condolences to the families of lost loved ones. I will regard your loved ones with paramount esteem.
