DENVER -- Seeing workers carrying boxes out of a building that used to be their employer has become a familiar sight.
On Thursday, 11 employees of the Adams County Coroner's Office were told they would have to reapply for their jobs.
"I was offered a position in October and I was quite shocked that this took place today," says Laura Ward, who worked as a Deputy Coroner Investigator.
The positions range from deputy coroner to administrative clerk.
"It was not easy," says new Coroner Monica Broncucia-Jordan. The new coroner says the people of Adams County deserve the most qualified people for the positions. She said the 11 people let go were welcome to re-apply for their old positions.
Broncucia-Jordan recently won the Coroner's election with the slogan Competence, Compassion, Change.
