Dear Editor,

I am grateful and privileged for the opportunity to run for the position of register of deeds of St. Croix County. My name will be on the primary election ballot on Sept. 9.

I am seeking this position because I know I can make a difference and I believe that now is the time to bring change, new ideas and hard work to the Register of Deeds Office. I believe in customer service, better communication, attention to accuracy, and improving technology.

I believe I am the best candidate for Register of Deeds. I have a strong work ethic and am committed to you. The County Board is requesting budget cuts of 5-10 percent this year. My Certified Public Accounting License, Bachelors Degree and financial and budgeting background provide me with the experience and skills necessary to make these administrative decisions. My determination is strong and I will not waiver when difficult decisions need to be made.

I am running a positive campaign and am working hard to meet the citizens of our great county. Please take time to get to know me better by viewing my website and I ask that you consider voting for me at the Primary Election on Sept. 9. Please help me make change by going to the polls, vote Democrat at the top of the Ballot, and pick Pabst for the next Register of Deeds.

Every resident of this county is important to me and has a voice/a vote in who becomes the next Register of Deeds. Together we can make Now the Time for progress.

Beth Pabst, Hammond

Candidate for Register of Deeds
