One of four county officers whose terms expire this year declared Wednesday for a second term in office.
Deb Regester confirmed that she will seek a new term as register of deeds. Regester, a Republican, won election to her first four-year in 2008, defeating Jerry Humbert in the primary and Democrat Michael Romaniszyn in the general election.
The register of deeds is the officer responsible for the filing and maintenance of documents related to property ownership and title. “I love my job and I feel like I have a lot to offer with my experience,” said Regester in explaining her decision to seek a new term. Prior to being elected register, she was deputy register for several years.
Other county offices to be filled in 2012 are county attorney, clerk and treasurer. Beyond that, two commissionerships — those representing the Second and Third Districts — will also be on the ballot.
