Governor seeks new Rock County coroner

The Rock County Coroner's position will soon be vacant, and the governor is looking for a replacement.  This is current coroner Jenifer Keach's last week on the job.  She's accepted a private sector nursing position.  Keach was originally appointed to the job in 2005 by then Governor James Doyle.  She also won re-election twice.  The new coroner will complete Keach's current term ending in January of 2015.  Rock County already has plans to eliminate the coroner position and transition to an appointed medical examiner at that time.
