Letter: Nolting’s experience best for coroner

From: Al Roszczyk


On Nov. 8, I would encourage you to support with me Clayton Nolting for Bartholomew County coroner. Clayton’s educational background, his professional experience and his steadfast commitment to our community make him a clear choice for such an important position within Bartholomew County.

Clayton has an extensive background in forensics, having earned a bachelor’s degree in organizational leadership and management, as well as a master’s degree in forensic science. Additionally, he has carried his knowledge back to the classroom, where he has ongoing experience as an adjunct professor at the University of Tennessee, as well as Harrison College here in Columbus.

Professionally, Clayton has sought opportunities to expand upon his education, acquiring the practical skills necessary to successfully transition into the coroner role. Currently, he is a police officer with the Columbus Police Department, a member of the SWAT team and an officer with the local DARE program. Most notably, he has worked with the Bartholomew County coroner’s office, serving currently as chief deputy with certification as a medicolegal death investigator.

A 2004 Columbus East graduate, as well as a Purdue graduate, Clayton’s roots are from Bartholomew County. I hope you’ll join my family and me in voting for Clayton Nolting for coroner on Nov. 8.
