Darryl W. Perry Running for Cheshire County (NH) Register of Deeds

An e-mail from Darryl W. Perry:

I am publicly announcing my intentions to run for Register of Deeds in Cheshire County, New Hampshire against incumbent Evelyn Hubal. Hubal was first elected as Register of Deeds in 1974, and has run unopposed since 2000 (election results prior to 2000 were not available online).

The Registry of Deeds is the office that processes information as it relates to the selling and buying of property. It is a public office open to the legal profession and general public for researching the records. Besides deeds, mortgages, liens and attachments, there are various other types of documents pertaining to land records filed with the Registry. Plans of properties that have been surveyed and recorded will also be found in the Registry, but not all properties have a survey.

The office has a yearly budget over $359,000 per year, which includes a $54,000/yr salary for the elected Register of Deeds.

If elected, I will work to abolish this office!

I will be seeking the Libertarian Party nomination at the NH LP nominating convention on June 9. If I do not obtain the LP nomination, I will file as an independent candidate.

If you would like to issue a public endorsement, please reply and your endorsement will be posted online at http://darrylwperry.wordpress.com

    After eliminating a Registry of Deeds office, where would people go for the same information? Merge with another county office?

    The operating cost seems high for an office that simply makes records open to the public.

    I am glad to see The Boston Tea Party and Perry focusing on a local race. The Boston Tea Party running a candidate for president when they will only be on the ballot in 3 or so states seems pretty silly. Keep trying for the local races.

    Hi Darryl –

    Best wishes to you in your candidacy. Can you say more about how the functions of this office, which strike me as legitimate governmental functions, would be fulfilled once the office is abolished? Does the person who holds this office even have the power to abolish it? What authority established or requires it?

    Can you say more about how the functions of this office, which strike me as legitimate governmental functions, would be fulfilled once the office is abolished?
    I believe that the functions of this office could be preformed by the Treasurer or County Clerk.

    Does the person who holds this office even have the power to abolish it?
    No, however an elected official holds more sway with those who could.

    What authority established or requires it?
    Article 71 of the NH Constitution http://www.nh.gov/constitution/treasurer.html

    I just read Article 71 of the NH Constitution. It says the Registers of Deeds must be elected. The only way for this to change is to amend the state constitution. You are lying to the voters if you are telling them you will abolish the office once you win the election, because you don’t have the authority to.

  6. Jason Gatties

    Nick, I believe it says the same in the Michigan Constitution. However, individual counties may combine the office, as many have done in Michigan (usually combined with the County Clerk’s office).

    So, I have to imagine it’s the same in New Hampshire. As Mr. Perry already stated that the office could be combined with another county office, he is not lying.

  7. Jason Gatties

    By saying he will “work to abolish this office” I’m sure he means he would use his position to attempt to convince county officials to do so. That’s not lying. Winning office and putting public pressure on the County Board to do so is working to abolish the office.

  8. Nick Kruse

    Jason @6, Darryl Perry did not say he would work to combine this office with surrounding counties. What he said was: “If elected, I will work to abolish this office!”. Abolishing and combining are two different things.

  9. Darryl W. Perry

    @10 – I will work to abolish the office of Register of Deeds. The functions currently performed by that office can and should be handled by another office. There is overlap between the Registry of Deeds and the County Treasurer, these functions could also be handled by the County Clerk or even the city/town clerks.

    In fairness to Mr. Perry, abolishing this office and “work(ing) to abolish this office” are two different things as well. I also assume combining it would get rid of the $54,000 a year salary. My suspicion is that the Register of Deeds does a whole lot of internet surfing. Mr. Perry should ask to see the office internet history report.

    Yet another wonderful example of the libertarian circular firing squad phenomenon!

    You beat me to it.

    Darryl – Thank you for running for office on a strongly libertarian message! You’ve got my endorsement.

    You might also offer to voluntarily take only 50% of the Registrar of Deeds salary if elected, and challenge other government officials to do the same. Or something along those lines. Red Phillips @12 has a good suggestion about looking into Internet surfing or other corruption/abuse.

    “You might also offer to voluntarily take only 50% of the Registrar of Deeds salary if elected, and challenge other government officials to do the same. Or something along those lines.”

    I will be making an announcement regarding this suggestion within the coming week.
