Malone to serve four more yearsPublished 10:59pm Tuesday, June 3, 2014
Franklin County’s current coroner Elzie Malone said he was more than glad to continue in the position he has served in for the past eight years.
Malone won his bid for re-election against challenger John James by an uncertified margin of 1,070 votes to James’ 796 votes.
“This is a great honor that the people of Franklin County have enough confidence in me to vote for me to be their coroner for another four years,” Malone said.
“This job is important to me and I appreciate all of the support I’ve received.”
James congratulated Malone on his victory.
“I appreciate everyone who came out to support me and those who have supported me throughout this process,” James said.
“I wish Elzie the best and congratulate him on his win.”
