Lake County Coroner Jennifer Banek announced Tuesday she will seek reelection in 2024 for a second term in office.
In her announcement, the Democrat from Green Oaks cited three major priorities: targeting the crisis of opioid-related deaths in Lake County; fiscal responsibility; and her office’s partnership with the Gift of Hope organization to streamline the process of organ donations.
“Especially with the looming opioid crisis, the challenges the coroner’s office faces are many,” Banek said in her announcement. “While we have accomplished much during my first term in office, I have just gotten started. I’m grateful for the support I’ve received from the community and am eager to serve Lake County families for another four years.”
