Democrat for Kent County Recorder of Deeds


Each candidate was asked to respond to three questions.

1.  What are the top issues you will address in your campaign and what are your plans for moving those issues forward?

Continue keeping the Recorder of Deeds office accountable to the citizens of Kent County through the integrity of the office. The Deeds staff stays up-to-date with the latest computer system and technology regarding our recording system. This knowledge allows the recorder’s staff to be a leader in customer service and dedicated to our constituents needs. Another of the top issues is the Kent County Operating  Budget. I am very conscious of looking for ways to save money without lowering the service we provide for all of Kent County.

2.  What makes you uniquely qualified for the political office you seek?

My entire adult life has been serving the citizens of Kent County in one aspect or another. My years of employment with Family Court working with the probation department, mostly young folks. And the balance of my employment has been for City Government and County Government. I have a lot of respect for everyone in Kent County, for the state elected officials, the county elected officials, state and county employees, primary businesses and most all the great citizens of Kent County that I serve each and every day.
