Miller to run again

January 18, 1999|By DON AINES

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Franklin County Register of Wills and Recorder of Deeds Linda Miller has announced that she will run for a second four-year term in the May primary.

The Chambersburg Republican's office maintains records on mortgages, deeds and estates. In her announcement, Miller said future plans include expanding the use of computers for estate records and print receipts to reduce the time and money spent on forms.

Miller said her office has had a busy year due to injcreased refinancing and home purchases due to lower mortgage interest rates.

Because it is considered a dual office, the register and recorder will be paid $45,036 this year. Most other county elected officers will be paid $41,117.


Feb. 16 is the first day for candidates to begin circulating petitions to get on the May 18 ballot.

The three incumbent county commissioners, Republicans G. Warren Elliott and Bob Thomas and Democrat Cheryl Plummer have announced they will run for re-election. Two other candidates, Democrat Bruce Hockersmith of Shippensburg and Republican Chris Bender of Fayetteville, are also running for commissioner.

District Attorney John F. Nelson, a Republican, is also running for re-election.

Republican Linda Beard has announced she is running for re-election to the Prothonotary's Office. Her office mantains civil court records.

Chief Deputy Coroner Jeffrey R. Conner is running for the GOP nomination to replace retiring Coroner Kenneth L. Peiffer Jr.

Sheriff Robert Wollyung and Clerk of Courts William Vandrew have yet to formally announce they are running for re-election.

There will be a special election on May 18 for the Republican jury commissioner position. Allen V. Twigg of Chambersburg received an interim appointment last month following the death in November of Robert S. Little.

The winner of that special election will serve out the remainder of Little's term.
