Competition Heats-up for Yakima County Coroner Position

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash-- The race for Yakima County Coroner is about to heat-up. Alberta Redwing filed her paperwork to run in the fall as a Republican against current Coroner Jack Hawkins. 

She was one of the finalists for the county coroner when Maurice Rice retired at the end of March. Even though Redwing is new to the City of Yakima she likes her chances.

"When it came to the PCO selections and they went by our qualifications.... I came out on top. I'm hoping the public will look at my qualifications and decide from there," said Redwing.

Friday is the last day for candidates to file to run for public office in this year's election.
