Letter: Maria Ziemba for Register of Deeds

Letter to the EditorPrint Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

I am writing in support of Maria Ziemba's candidacy for the Northern Berkshire Registry of Deeds. She would be an excellent person to fill this important position. Over the years, I have had many occasions to visit the registry in different capacities, both for buying and selling real estate personally and for transactions as a realtor in Northern Berkshire County. My real estate transactions have always been very smooth because of Maria's knowledge and experience. I have also heard the same said of her knowledge and experience from the lawyers I have worked with on the real estate closings.

Maria is always there with a friendly greeting as you come into the office and she is incredibly knowledgeable and accessible. She is a great resource on all of the documents and history of the transactions in Northern Berkshire County Registry of Deeds. She has over 30 years' experience between working at the registry and at several lawyers offices that worked with the registry doing real estate transactions. She has helped me, and members of my family, research several questions we have had over the years with different properties that we were going to purchase or have owned. She has plans for how the records of the registry can be modernized and computerized. She is the best choice to lead the registry forward and I am confident that she will be a hands-on working register.

Please join me in casting your vote for Maria for the register position on Nov. 6. A vote for Ziemba is the "right choice."

ADAMS, Mass. — Amidst a worldwide health pandemic, civil unrest stretching from coast to coast, and a presidential election full of vitriol that has spurred a culture war between politicians and voters alike, grade-schooler Paige Green decided she wanted to do something nice. 
The recently turned 7-year-old opted to forgo birthday gifts this year and instead raise some money for animals. Enter the Adams Police Department and its 9-year-old K-9, Kumar.
"[Officer] Nick Dabrowski reached out to me and said, 'Hey a family friend is looking to do a fundraiser.' Paige had a birthday coming up and decided that instead of gifts, she wanted to raise money for animals and they figured we had [Kumar]. In the beginning I thought any little bit would help, 50 bucks, 100 bucks will go towards dog food. I was being serious in that I thought that's what it was gonna be," said Kumar's partner and full-time handler Officer Curtis Crane.
"I reached out to [Officer Travis Cunningham], who does our Facebook, and the chief and said, 'hey, are you OK with this if I put it on our Facebook as the Adams PD?' and it just took off from there."
