Letter - Katz 5-21-22

I wanted to share with you what I know about an excellent candidate for the Beadle County Register of Deeds. I have known Judy Rodacker for 28 years. Over the last 16 years that Judy has worked in the Register of Deed’s office, I have seen firsthand that she is one of the best that exemplifies the spirit of courteousness and professionalism in the highest degree to customers. She has the most experience of the three candidates running for that office. I have seen her work product – it is accurate and thorough, and I would vouch that she will continue to provide that same great service in the future with her ever present smile. If she were elected to be the Register of Deeds, I can assure everyone that the office will be in very good hands.

A large ‘thank you’ to Barb O’Riley, for all her years of service as the Beadle County Register of Deeds. Enjoy your retirement. Now on June 7, we have an election to fill that position of Register of Deeds. There are three people running for that position. I will be honest, Scott Beck is the only one I know personally.

Letter - Overbay 5-16-22

I’m writing today in support of Kelley Haaland for Beadle County Register of Deeds. As a county employee, it’s a little awkward having three of my fellow employees vying for the same position, especially when I consider all three as friends. With that said however, I do support Kelley for these reasons:
