My Name is Gary Mayfield, and I am announcing my candidacy for Cleburne County Coroner in the June 2014 Republican Primary. My dedication to serving my community began at age 18, when I was allowed to join Ranburne Fire and Rescue Squad. Sincere gratitude goes to the members who allowed me to be part of the group. I credit this group in instilling into me a sense of community service that has shaped my life and formed a commitment to serving the public. Under accelerated college placement, I was granted State EMT licenses in 1980 after studies at Southern Union College, all while still attending Ranburne High school. My professional career focused around my medical background. I received my degree in Respiratory Therapy in 1988 and was granted National Licensure from the NBRC and licensures from Alabama and Georgia. I continued my community service with Abernathy Fire Department as my wife Gina, and I raised our three children Tiffany Mayfield Fuller, Spencer Mayfield and Bradley Mayfield. After seeing an increase in arson cases in and around the area in the 90s, I attended The Alabama Fire College where I earned a Fire Investigation Certificate and was licensed by the State of Alabama as a Certified Fire Investigator. On September 11, 2001, life as we once knew changed as our nation saw terror from abroad. In responce to this I attend The Advanced Regional Responce Training Center at the University of South Alabama in Mobile for certificate of complication for training in disaster preparation. I see public service not just as a job but as a calling- time that is given not for the money but for it's need. I believe this calling to those who serve is a gift from God.

I once again ask to join and ask the people of Cleburne County to allow me to serve as their Coroner. To learn more please visit

Sincerely J. Gary Mayfield
