Friday letters: Barron offers proven leadership

Posted on June 27, 2014 


— I have spent my life — and raised my family — in Lexington County. I have served as mayor, a county council member and member of the S.C. House of Representatives. I am convinced that Frank Barron’s personal integrity and proven record make him the right person for Lexington County coroner.

In 2007, he and his youngest daughter wanted to be in West Columbia to be close to his father, who lived at Still Hopes. Frank Barron has been active in the community, including serving as a member of the West Metro Rotary Club, several chambers of commerce and the Lexington County Community Emergency Response Team.

He served as Richland County’s coroner for 22 years, during which he was elected president of the S.C. Coroners’ Association seven times. He has investigated many deaths; no other candidate for coroner has comparable experience.

In exchange for our votes for Mr. Barron, we will receive proven leadership, proven experience and proven integrity.
