Not only does Gordon Clement, MD, have superior qualifications for the job of Montgomery County coroner, he reminds us that one of the roles of coroner is to remember those people and families who have been left behind.
Clement is the child of immigrants who came to America because they wanted something better and were willing to work for it.
Expertise and skill are critical to getting a result but they are not enough. The patient, the client, the customer has to believe that you know what he or she needs. It is a lot more than skill, or expertise or a product. All are in the service of an individual with all his and her complexity. I have met Dr. Clement who is truly a gentle man, compassionate and a super nice guy. Dr. Clement is exceptionally well qualified to be Montgomery County’s coroner.
Every Vote Counts
Dr. Clement is out meeting voters. In 2007, he lost by 586 out of 148,360 votes demonstrating that every vote counts. Coroner

Another candidates for Montgomery County candidates to get behind is Moon Ahn, for clerk of courts.
Ahn is a life-long Republican and a first generation immigrant. Like many of our parents and grandparents, he and his family came to America because he wanted something better and was willing to work for it.
