SARATOG COUNTY - Susan Hayes-Masa was appointed County Coroner by the Saratoga County Board of Supervisors at their regular meeting on Tuesday. The appointment will last through the end of the year, as the position has been vacant since the passing of County Coroner John DeMartino in May.
Hayes-Masa is running for County Coroner this November and is unopposed on the ballot.
“I am humbled and honored to be selected by the Board of Supervisors for this position. Having worked in the office for almost 20 years, I will ensure a seamless transition and the Coroner’s office will continue to provide top-notch investigation and reporting. I look forward to this new role and serving the residents of Saratoga County,” said Hayes-Masa.
“Over the years, Susan has been a tremendous asset to our team and I am thrilled to have her officially join the office as Coroner. Her knowledge, experience and familiarity with our staff and procedures will ensure that our office runs smoothly,” said Tom Salvatore, Saratoga County Coroner.
“Susan has the knowledge, experience and compassion to be an excellent County Coroner. The Board of Supervisors is pleased to appoint her to this position and we look forward to working with her for years to come. She will serve County residents well,” said Alan Grattidge, Chairman of the Saratoga County Board of Supervisors.
Hayes-Masa, who lives in Saratoga Springs, has received the backing of the Saratoga County Republican Committee, the Saratoga County Independence Party and the Saratoga County Conservative Party. In addition, she has established working relationships with Dr. Michael Sikirica, the coroners’ physician, and the rest of the coroner’s office staff.
