Congratulations to Sabrina Gast, York County's Coroner

We in the Blogland want to thank Governor Sanford for re-appointing York County's interim Coroner Sabrina Gast to permanently take over the office tomorrow when the current Coroner's resignation becomes effective.

We also want to thank the many people who expressed their support for Gast's permanent appointment. Her qualifications are outstanding, and include:

  • Qualified as an expert witness in York County as a Nurse, Forensic Nurse, and as a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner.
  • Reduced the 2007 budget for the coroner's office.
  • Participate in the "Alive at 25" education program through the SC National Safety Council.
  • Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing.
  • Masters Degree in Forensic Nursing from Duquesne University.
  • Certified by the American Board of Medicolegal Death Investigators (ABMDI)
  • Certified Emergency Nurse (CEN)
  • Certified Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE-A)
  • Certified Forensic Nurse (CFN)

Between her qualifications and time spent as the county's interim Coroner, we know she'll be a real asset to York County government and a qualified and compassionate public servant. We were proud to endorse her re-appointment and believe the people of York County will be well served with her on the job.

Her term in office will be short, as she will be standing for election for a full four-year term on the November ballot. Her campaign website is online at

In November, we hope the voters of York County will realize what an outstanding public servant she's been and ask them to give her the honor of serving as their full-fledged elected Coroner.
