Hempfield woman announces bid for Register of Wills
A Hempfield woman said Friday she wants to run the courthouse office where she has worked for the last 15 years.
Katie Pecarchik, 50, announced she will be a candidate for Register of Wills, the office that oversees estates, wills, adoptions records and marriage licenses. She serves as a deputy clerk in the office.
Pecarchik, a Democrat, is seeking to replace her boss, Republican Sherry Magretti Hamilton, who is expected to seek a second term in office.
“If elected, I pledge to be a full time Register of Wills. I will be in the office during working hours to make sure that any questions or help will be given in a timely manner. My door will always be open, and I will encourage new ideas, making the office more efficient and more user-friendly,” Pecarchik said. “I will also work with the staff to make sure that everyone coming to the office receives the highest quality of customer service.”
