Fayette County will have a new coroner in December of 2016. After serving for four terms, Bruce Bowen has decided not to run for another term as Fayette County Coroner. Bowen says in a statement he had picked up a petition and intended to run for a fifth term. But, a situation he recently dealt with lead to him changing his mind. Bowen says that in his 15 years as Coroner he has answered calls 24 hours a day, and has worked hard to be the best Coroner for the county including training, negotiating bills with vendors, seeking and receiving grants and doing all he could for those who lost loved ones. Bowen says he would like to thank all that have supported him over the past 15 years. Bowen’s last day as coroner will be November 30th of 2016—which would finish out his fourth term.
