Paul Nutting of Dorchester says he's running for Suffolk County Register of Deeds. Other potential candidates including long-time and now former city councilors Steve Murphy and Charles Yancey and long-time candidate Doug Bennett.
Having worked for the State's Mapping Agency, MassGIS (think Google maps), I have over 20 years of computerized land records management experience. Most recently, I was part of a small team that assemble 351 cities' and town's individual assessor record databases into a single interactive online viewer-you can view any parcel across the state and click to get the record. Innovation in providing mapped and textual information has been the focus of my career and I intend to bring the skills that I have developed to the Suffolk County Registry of Deeds.
Whoever wins will succeed Mickey Roache, who retired in December from the job he won after retiring from the city council. The register oversees property transactions in Boston, Chelsea, Revere and Winthrop.
