In the next few days, Democrats in Middlesex County will convene at a special nominating caucus to elect a democratic candidate for the office of Register of Probate. I intend to be candidate at that caucus.
As a lifelong resident and attorney practicing in Middlesex County for 17 years, I possess not only the qualifications necessary to effectively manage the Middlesex Probate Court but also a strong commitment to Middlesex County and a strong desire to restore integrity and professionalism to the office of the Middlesex County Register of Probate.
I am a 1988 graduate of the University of Massachusetts/Isenburg School of Management and a 1991 graduate of the Catholic University of America/Columbus School of Law. For the past 11 years, I have served as an Assistant Solicitor for the City of Lowell representing the City of Lowell in all courts in the commonwealth and providing legal counsel on all matters pertaining to a public entity including labor and employment issues, public bidding and purchasing issues and matters involving state ethics laws.
As Register of Probate, I pledge to utilize this unique combination of education and experience to ensure that all citizens of Middlesex County are well served by a Probate Court that is accessible and responsive to those who utilize its services. As Register of Probate, among my highest priorities would be efforts to address the following:
1. Costly inefficiencies in court operations which delay and undermine the administration of justice.
2. Advocate for and lobby our legislature for the funding necessary to make critical infrastructure and facilities improvements.
3. Improve technological access to the Probate Court within the confines of personal privacy concerns and public records laws.
4. Institute major changes in the area of employee relations in order to address declining employee morale and realize the maximum potential of the talented staff in the Middlesex Probate Court.
Please support my candidacy by attending your local caucus on Monday Sept 22 or Tuesday Sept. 23 and voting for me at the nominating caucus on Wednesday September 24.
