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."

Cassandra Peltier as Alva Belmont Vanderbilt, a prominent figure in the suffrage movement.
ADAMS, Mass. — About 75 people filled The Manor on Saturday afternoon for the kickoff event of a yearlong celebration of Susan B. Anthony and the 100th anniversary of women winning the right to vote.
The event at St. John Paul II Parish's Italianate mansion was organized by the Adams Suffrage Centennial Celebration Committee. The committee serves as an advisory committee to the Board of Selectmen. 
Anthony was born in Adams and was a social reformer best known for spearheading the women's suffrage movement. She was also involved in the anti-slavery movement, collecting signatures for petitions as a teen, the temperance (prohibition of alcohol) movement, and women's financial rights.
Retired school teacher Mary Whitman, committee member and host for the day, shared why Anthony's work was so important.
