Melton Brooks to run for Christian County Coroner

A familiar name will run for Christian County Coroner this year as a Democrat.

Melton Brooks filed Monday to seek the post and says he has over 30 years of experience that make him more than qualified for the job.

Brooks, a minister, says that it is time for a change and his understanding of people will help him perform the duties if elected.

Brooks will face Deputy Coroner Zach Lamb in the Democratic primary, where the victor will go on to face either Jane McKnight or Scott Daniel, who will face off in the Republican primary. Incumbent Dorris Lamb has announced he won’t seek reelection.                                                                                                **
