BRANSON MO NEWS: Taney County’s coroner is resigning.
Kevin Tweedy, who has worked with the county for more than a dozen years, submitted a letter of resignation to the governor and Taney County Commission in November, citing career changes and his family as the reason for leaving.
In the letter, Tweedy writes that his last day will be Dec. 31; however, if Gov. Eric Greitens has not appointed his replacement, Tweedy said he would remain in office until that appointment. Tweedy recommended Deputy Coroner Tony Mullen.
Tweedy said he will continue working in the medical and fatality management field, but at a state level.
Below is Tweedy’s full letter:
November 27, 2017
Taney County Commission,
It is with a heavy heart, I must submit my resignation for the Office of Taney County Coroner. I have sent my resignation letter to the Governor’s Office last week. Things have changed with my career and family so I feel it’s best to resign my position effective December 31, 2017 but if the Governor has not appointed someone by then I will remain in office until that appointment has been made. I have recommended Tony Mullen, my Deputy Coroner, to continue as Coroner till the next election. Tony and I have worked together for over 20 years, both as Paramedics and again in the Coroner’s office. Tony is a skilled death investigator skilled in forensics, and he (is) very compassionate. It’s been my honor to serve the Citizens of Taney County and the State of Missouri as Coroner for the past 12 years and I look forward to serving my County again in some fashion in the future.
Kevin Tweedy EMT-P
Coroner Taney County
