Patsy McCormack Paquette is announcing her candidacy for election to the office of Register of Deeds in Warren County. The election will be held Thursday, Aug. 7.
“I am very excited to announce my decision to seek the office of Register of Deeds. I will run as an independent because I want to serve all the people of Warren County, not just a certain affiliation. I believe elected officials are ambassadors for all the people,” said Paquette.
Paquette was born and raised in Warren County, is a member of the 1970 class of Warren County Senior High School, and a 1987 graduate of Cumberland School of Medical Technology.
Paquette knows the value of hard work as she worked at Janie’s Restaurant and McCormack Industrial prior to starting her own business, Action Advertising, in 1993.
“I have worked hard my whole life. I have done almost everything from waiting tables and running a cash register to owning my own business. In all aspects of business, I have valued time management and organization. My work ethic made my business successful and I will bring the same work ethic to the Register of Deeds office,” said Paquette.
“Technology is always advancing. Today, over 50 counties in Tennessee have websites that allow real estate property searches, title searches and deeds searches. I would like to start that service for the citizens of Warren County,” said Paquette. “I love history. All my life, I have been interested in history. And, I love to search through old land deeds. What better way to learn about history than to help people search for deeds, plats, etc. This is the 21st Century. It is time to move the office into present day and time to make the documents more accessible to more people.”
Paquette is the daughter of the late H.D. and Tellie Brady McCormack. She is the youngest of eight children. She is married to George Paquette, retired plant manager of Powermatic Foundry, Inc. Together, the couple are the parents of five children and grandparents of seven grandchildren.
She is a Christian and is an active volunteer for several nonprofit organizations.
“I love working with people and I would love to work for the people of Warren County. I also want to run an office that is open to anyone for any reason. I will strive to operate an office that will serve citizens with kindness and professionalism. I ask for your vote Aug. 7,” said Paquette.
