Nelson qualifies as worthy candidate
October 17, 2008
I am writing to encourage you to vote for Vicki Nelson for Pierce County Register of Deeds. She has been the Register for the past four years and has done a wonderful job. She has nearly 15 years experience in that office and has expertise in every position within that office. She has worked well with the County Board, title people, and other Department Heads within the county.
In this time of turmoil in the United States, many people feel that "change" is the way to go. That may be true in some situations, however, I don't believe it's true in this case. You need someone who knows how to run the office (and perform the duties) rather than paying someone to sit around while others do the work. And, on the County level, it certainly doesn't make sense to elect someone just because they're with one party of another!
What's important is that they can do the work for which they're being paid. Therefore, I again encourage you to vote for Vicki Nelson (not the other inexperienced candidate) for Pierce County Register of Deeds.
Connie (Olson) Leuzinger
Former Register of Deeds
