Beasley to run for re-election as Register of Deeds

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Tammy Beasley announced Thursday she plans to run for re-election next year as New Hanover County's Register of Deeds.

Beasley won the seat in 2012 by defeating incumbent Jennifer Hardison MacNeish by about 2,700 votes, out of the more than 96,000 votes cast in the race.

Beasley says she plans to file on December 1, the first day candidates can file to run in 2016 elections.

In a news release announcing her plans, Beasley says her goals are "to improve citizen awareness regarding services offered and functions of the office, continued innovation and exploration of avenues to be more cost effective without impacting services, and most crucial to her, meet and hopefully exceed all expectations presented to the office and to her as Register of Deeds."
