Commercial Title Examiner
Kent State University, B.A. and Lake Catholic H.S.
Qualifications for this office:
I have 35 years experience working with and within the Recorder’s office. As Recorder, I implemented the “Good Deeds” and U.S. Veteran ID Card programs. Launched Property Fraud Alert, placed document images online for FREE easy access and began eRecording. I utilized taxpayer’s money effectively to efficiently streamline processes.
In an environment of decreased revenue, what changes do you anticipate having to make?
The wasteful spending that has been occurring for almost four years will stop. Instead of purchasing new binders, I will back scan documents in-house to save money. The Current Recorder misappropriated and depleted the Technology Fund. I will need to restructure it to again use as it was intended.
What specific skills and knowledge of the Recorder’s responsibilities would you bring to this office?
Having held this office, I know that every record is important and that these documents represent the most valuable asset of the homeowners in this county. My knowledge and experience give me insight into the needs of all the office stakeholders and will allow me to hit the ground running.
