Carl Macht, Archuleta County Coroner, has joined the list of incumbents opting to run in this fall’s election.
“I’ve given it a lot of thought and the community has really seemed to appreciate my efforts in caring on their behalf,” Macht said regarding his decision to run again.
Macht has served as coroner for nearly10 years.
“I do the job the same way every day. I want to do a good job,” he said, adding that he has the experience to do the job. “I continue to go to training around this state and in nearby states to keep up my skills.
“I really believe that someone who does this job needs to care about this community and I do,” said Macht, also a rancher and a paramedic with the ambulance service for over 30 years. “Helping this community is part of who I am.”
