Candidate Spotlight: David Young for Coroner

David Young for Coroner

David Young

David Young is the Republican candidate for the office of Madison County Coroner. He currently serves as Chief Deputy Coroner of Madison County, is a board member of the Huntsville-Madison County Rescue Squad, and serves on the Meridianville Volunteer Fire Department.

He is a nationally registered Emergency Medical Technician, certified by the Alabama Fire College as Firefighter II, has been employed with the Alabama State Troopers, holds numerous certifications in FEMA’s National Incident Management System, and has completed a number of death investigation classes.

While serving as Chief Deputy Coroner of Madison County, Young has investigated hundreds of deaths – working with law enforcement agencies and bereaved families.

In a recent interview, he stated, “I want to continue to serve the people of Madison County by continuing to improve the level of service that our citizens receive from the Coroner’s office, and I’m committed to ensuring that the office does not revert back to being operated out of a local funeral home. The rotation system that is currently in place benefits our residents and is not used to bolster a particular funeral home’s business. It would be a step backward to move the Coroner’s office back into a private business.”

Since 2008, Debra has worked at the office of the Circuit Clerk Jane Smith at the Madison County courthouse.

While living in Houston, Debra worked for Vinson & Elkins, Texas’ largest law firm, from 1984 to 1992.

In addition to this, Debra met the daily demands of raising and educating three children, including a son with special needs.

She is a longtime supporter of Choose Life of North Alabama and a member of Concerned Women for America. She is also an active member at Whitesburg Baptist Church in Huntsville. Debra has a strong work ethic and is a firm believer in fully dedicating oneself to their duties. If elected to serve as License Director of Madison County, she will act primarily as a servant of the citizens of Madison County, acting with a dedication to professionalism, respect and efficiency.

Debra is not a career politician in any form. She will serve her position as License Director not as a stepping stone on a political career, but as her daily joy and duty to restore faith in elected officials through accountability, trust and service.
