Stansell Announces Candidacy for County Coroner

Tammy StansellBROCKWAY, Pa. (EYT) – Tammy Stansell has announced her candidacy to represent the Democratic Party for Jefferson County Coroner in May’s primary election.

“While other candidates may come from the retail business or funeral home backgrounds, my emergency medical training and experience would far better serve the residents of Jefferson County in what has become the increasingly complex medical service of county coroner,” Stansell said in a statement.

According to her announcement, Stansell has worked extensively with the medical health and emergency human service agencies in the Jefferson and Clearfield counties. She has an extensive background and training in a wide area of emergency action which would benefit Jefferson County in her role as coroner.

Stansell received her degree in nursing at Lock Haven University and holds a Registered Nursing (RN) license in Pennsylvania and 12 other states. She has worked for more than 20 years in the intensive care units (ICU) and emergency rooms in area and other western Pa. hospitals and has numerous medical emergency certifications.

Stansell has been a volunteer Emergency Medical Technician for 37 years with the Brockway Ambulance Service and has served on its board of directors. She has taught first aid, CPR, and served as a volunteer RN at the DuBois Free Medical Clinic.

Recently, Stansell has also obtained numerous emergency certifications in the area of oil and gas well safety practices, OSHA Construction Safety, and certification by the U.S. Department of Labor as an instructor in Mine Safety and Health Administration.

Stansell is an active member of the Brockway community taking leadership roles in the Brockway Block Parent Program focusing on community involvement for child safety and the annual Children’s Christmas Party benefiting community youngsters.

She is a member of the Ladies Auxiliary to the Veterans of Foreign Wars and Ladies Auxiliary with the Brockway American Legion. She is also a volunteer aid at the local elementary school.

In the past few years, Stansell has been focused in an ongoing effort to combat the heroin and drug epidemic which has come to our area. She has been instrumental in bringing SAGE’s Army to present to our school and public audiences along with providing other resources to help local agencies deal with drug addiction and its tragic impact on our local youth.

In seeking the post held by retiring long-time coroner, Bernard Snyder, Stansell is seeking the Democratic vote to continue his standard of excellence in serving Jefferson County.

Stansell, a life-long Brockway resident, and her husband, Walter, live at 106 Green Way in Brockway.
