It’s a clear case of office politics in the race for the Northern Berkshire District Register of Deeds.
Longtime Local 888 member Deborah Moran of Adams is running for register as an independent. Moran has worked at the Registry of Deeds since 1992. Two years ago, current Register of Deeds Frances Brooks named Moran first assistant register. Brooks is now retiring.
For her part, longtime Local 888 member Maria Ziemba, also of Adams, is running for register as a Democrat. Similar to her Local 888-linked opponent, Ziemba worked her way up from being hired as a junior clerk – more than 20 years ago.
