Recommendations & Comments.

"I have known Jimmy Spurling for over 26 years. He serving the citizens of Chattanooga as a firefighter, and I as a Police Officer. I have seen first hand his commitment to the public and his servant leadership. I have also benefited from his mentorship as a public safety leader, and as a Christian. Jimmy, like me, has since retired from the city of Chattanooga, but he has continued to serve the community in the coroners office. I know of no better man, in character, experience and commitment, to serve the citizens of Catoosa County as the next Coroner. I know as I have continued my career in law enforcement at another agency that I can depend on Jimmy’s professionalism and leadership when needed. Vote Jimmy Spurling Coroner!"

I am seeking to fill the unoccupied seat of retiring Coroner Vanita Hullander. My experience working with all aspects of Law Enforcement, Fire Services, EMS personnel, uniquely qualify me to fill this seat. I am experienced working the GBI (Georgia Bureau of Investigation), Medical Examiner’s Office and as lead deputy coroner I have completed numerous death scene investigations. I plan to continue the level of service to the citizens of Catoosa County that Coroner Vanita Hullander has provided for the last 23 years.


My objectives are to reduce the number of suicides, drug-related deaths, child and domestic violence deaths in our county. I will continue to work at the local and state level to meet these objectives and reduce the number of tragic deaths especially among our youth. I will network with local resources to provide quality, confidential counseling for our police officers, firefighters, EMS and 911 personnel who face critical incident stress every day and as a result, hope to drastically reduce the number of job burnouts, divorces and suicide rates which are high among our public servants.
