Kennedy elected county coroner

Lafayette County interim coroner Rocky Kennedy won the race Tuesday to keep the position he was appointed to by the Lafayette County Board of Supervisors one year ago.

With all 18 precincts reporting by 9 p.m., Kennedy walked away with 59.04 percent of the votes. His opponent, Richard Shivers, took 29.16 percent of the votes while former coroner Lonnie Weaver had just 11.66 percent of the votes.

“I’m glad it’s over,” Kennedy said. “But I think Lafayette County made the right choice a year ago when they appointed me, and I think when the people voted, they proved Lafayette County right.” (November 3, 2010, Page 1)
