One of my top priorities during my time in office and going into the future will be to manage advancing technologies and implement any new technology into our recording process. Our office has been a technology pioneer in the state of PA becoming the fifth county to enact electronic recording processes, digitized millions of records dating back to the beginning of Centre County, and redacted sensitive information from public records. Through my involvement in the state association, and connections with industry partners, we’re able to design and implement methods for efficiency and best business practices. A second priority is to ensure that the recent proposed state legislation that makes fees for recording documents in all PA counties uniform, are fair and reasonable to Centre County users. My third priority will be to maintain our excellent customer service practices, and to never lose site of the basic function of county government: public service.
