Hunke running for Winnebago Co. coroner

Voters in Winnebago County will have the chance to pick between two Republican candidates for coroner, in next month's primary.

Don Hunke is challenging longtime Coroner Barry Busby. Hunke was a paramedic on ambulances. He says he wants to give people a choice.

Hunke says he hopes to continue the office's work, in suicide prevention and the battle against heroin.

He says he would also explore whether it would be more cost-effective for the coroner's office to take bodies to medical examiners, for autopsies. Right now, Hunke says funeral homes handle that, for a fee.

We'll hear from Busby tomorrow. The primary is August 12.
