PERRY COUNTY – A Perry County man with a background in emergency medical services and criminal justice is seeking the office of Perry County Coroner.
Kevin "Nic" Etienne, 22, of 15122 Oriole Road, Leopold, filed his candidacy Tuesday. The Republican will face Charlie Baumeister, a Democrat, who won his primary race in May. It is Etienne's first try at political office.
"I believe I have the experience to run for the office through my studies in criminal justice and work as an EMT," he said.
