Each election there is a race that strikes a nerve with voters. This year it is the race for register of wills for me. Listening to and reading the ads that Amanda McCartney releases makes me wonder how, as a candidate for this office, she can say she’s No. 1 in experience. McCartney is a Democratic candidate who has never held a position in the office of the register of wills. The only experience McCartney can list is an assistant to District Judge Allen Sinclair and now as the first deputy prothonotary.
Her opponent, Republican candidate Christine Millinder, has been employed in the Register of Wills Office for the past 28 years and most recently as the acting register of wills.
On a personal note, several years ago while getting ready for rehearsal for my niece’s wedding my niece realized she didn’t have her marriage license. After making several phone calls we were put in contact with Millinder. She graciously agreed to meet us in the office on her own time to get the marriage license.
Millinder has my vote on Nov. 3.
