An Oswego paramedic said he has enough signatures on petitions to get on the November ballot as an independent candidate for Kendall County coroner. Mike Dabney, a former deputy coroner, said he has reached 1,518 — required to get on the ballot.
He would challenge incumbent Republican Coroner Ken Toftoy, his former employer. “We had a very successful weekend getting signatures on my petitions at the Oswego PrairieFest,” Dabney said. “As of this morning, I have 2,409 notarized signatures in hand.”
Dabney said he will walk door-to-door getting more signatures until June 25, the deadline for submitting petitions to the county clerk’s office.
