To the editor:
As Register and Recorder for Franklin County, I am responsible for the registration and recording of many documents that a county resident must legally record; wills, tax records, military records, real estate documents, Etc. Some of my responsibilities are very complex and I have had to rely on our County Solicitor Mary Beth Shank, on occasion, to provide me with timely and thorough legal advice, looking at the situation for all angles; protecting me, my department and ultimately the tax payer who pays for all these services.
I fully support Mary Beth Shank as she runs for Judge of the Court of Common Pleas. I know that the characteristics that I see in Mary Beth Shank are the perfect attributes for our next judge to possess. She is respectful, calm, dedicated, and thorough and, when needed, she can be tough and she always stands by the implementation of the law.
Personally, I have known Mary Beth Shank for 15 years. So my recommendation of support comes from long history of knowing her. I fully support our next Judge, Judge Mary Beth Shank for the Court of Common Pleas for Franklin and Fulton Counties.
Register and Recorder, Franklin County
