I know Mrs. Morgan, and she is a good Christian woman, a good wife and a wonderful Grandmother. She works hard, and while she may not have the resources for an expensive campaign like the Olmsteads do, she does get her signs out and she does campaign. Although she has spent years saving lives, she is more than qualified to determine when a life has ended. She will not try to persuade the family to use her funeral business. She doesn't have one. She has a lot of support in this county. We will vote for her .
For you to use anything that other Olmsteads did against Waren is wrong and very low on your part. He is a normal hard working middle class man. He is not rich, he doesn't own a million dollar home or fancy cars. He had not one thing to do with what went on between his brother and his dad. And who are you to say he has the money to campaign where Morgan does not. Do you pay his bills? It doesn't require a lot of money to get out and meet people. It doesn't require money to get involved in community events. It doesn't require a lot of money to stand on the street with a sign. He has done all of that. He works a full time job just like Mrs. Morgan, he has a family and all the activities that his children are involved in to attend. But he still finds the time to campaign. He has worked hard for votes. And for someone to not vote for him just because his last name is Olmstead is dirty, low and just plain wrong. He shouldnt have to pay for what his brother or father did. Look at the facts, look at the time and effort that each person has put into their campaign and vote for the right person. I don't have one thing against Mrs. Morgan. But I have not seen her work like Waren has. I am not saying she needs to spend lots of money on signs and t-shirts. What I am saying is Waren has made his campaign important and he has been involved in every social event possible. He has talked to people and spent time getting to know people. Vote for him because he is right for the job!! Don't use something he had or had mo control over against.

And why is that? What does owning the funeral have to do with being corner ? He is a great guy, a super family man, real involved in the community and cares about the people. He has worked for votes and been out in the community talking to people. I have seen him at many events. I couldn't tell you who Vickie Morgan was if I ran into her. So that alone should gain votes. Waren is a hard worker when it comes to his campaign, he has gotten out and talked to people. I think some of you want to use old family issues that he had nothing to do with against him and that is wrong and unfair. He knows the business and he has worked for the votes. If for no other reason he should win because of the way he ran his campaign. He worked hard at winning votes!!!! You got our votes Waren!! You are by far the best choice for the job !!!
Have you ever stopped to think that maybe "a whole lot of people" in this town/county are just plain sick and tired of the OLMSTEADS and ALL the DRAMA that ALWAYS surrounds them????? And by the way the term is "coroner" NOT "corner"...... good grief!!!!!

I am just curious>>>> Does anyone know what the salary of the coroner is???

When my mother died (6 years ago) I was "strongly" encouraged by the hospital staff to use Olmsteads and I refused. In fact I had it put "in writing" that I did NOT want her taken to Olmsteads. I didn't mind if Olmsteads "pronounced her dead", but I did not want her taken to their funeral home b/c I did not want her funeral to be there and I did not want her embalmed there before she was transported to another part of the state.

As for Warren Olmstead, he seems like a very nice young man. He would have the advantage of knowing the facts regarding the duties of a coroner. However, if he pressured families about using "the family" funeral home.... that would be wrong.(I can't see him doing that though).

I know Vicki Morgan as well and have always known her to be professional, kind and compassionate.
"The voters" will decide who they want as their coroner. I don't have a problem with either candidate.

<quoted text> amen this is 100% correct and I would not know the Morgan chick either but I didn't know the other Olmstead lady that ran. But I do know Waren and he is well qualified for the job. And he goes to church and is active in his church. Morgan does not go. Keep a God fearing person in this position.
Education is the key and warren has it.
Please vote the right person in.
EMT's try to save life's and coroners pronounce them dead. No need for an EMT if they can't be saved. Just more facts.
What the hell does being a "God fearing" person have to do with being a coroner??? I know plenty of Olmsteads who are anything but God fearing.... what a JOKE!!!!!!!!!

Those who wish to vote will make the decision... God fearing or not!!

Has the drama that you talking about involved Waren or Tracy? No it has not. Yes there has been a lot of negative drama by some of the Olmstead's but it wasn't Waren. Every family has a few members that cause drama or negative reflections on the family name. Would it be right or fair for me to not give you a chance at something you had worked very hard for because you have a relative that is the town drunk or you have a relative that is the town gossip/busy body? You have no say in what you relatives do or don't do. Why should you be punished for what they did? Keep your head up Waren!! Most of us know you did not cause or have anything to do with the so called drama!!

Waren is happily married to Tracy and has two children. I have never heard that he dated anyone. Let's not start untrue rumors. Enough people already want to use what other people have done against him, he doesn't need any added false rumors. If that is something you really want to know before you decide to vote then stop by and talk to him, he is a kind and friendly man. I dont think he would mind talking to you one bit.

I am sorry that I failed to put the "o" in coroner. I am not perfect and do make mistakes sometimes. And as far as Olmstead Drama, yes they have had their far share. But I think it is unfair to use what some Olmstead's did against the ones that had nothing to do with it. Why should Waren be held accountable for what Tom, Dwight or Russ has done? Do you not have any trouble makers in your family? Or what some would call undesirables? Should you be held accountable for what they have done? I know there are some in my family that I would hate to be compared with. And I think there are some in every family. Waren or Tracy were never involved in all the Olmstead drama as you call it. Don't punish a hard working, honest family man for something his relatives did.

Very well said and agree with you 150%. Waren is a fine Christian family man. He is married to a great lady and they have to great kids. No one should use what someone else had done against him. He is the best for the job, that should be all that matters.

Agree! Waren and Tracy are great people. He shouldn't be trashed or not given a chance because of something someone else choose to do. I can't think of any reason he should win. Press on Waren!!!

Vickie is an incredible individual. A true professional in all the endeavors she pursues. Cannot think of a negative thing to say about her even in this forum. Warren is an amazing family man, fair businessman, honorable human being, and I'm glad he lives with us here in Heber.
I am gonna have to leave my vote up to heads or tails on a voter's booth toss up, cuz both are truly deserving of the position.
Warren, Vickie, thanks for making this a better community just with y'all being here.
