I am the most Experienced and Qualified Candidate…..

 I am a lifelong Democrat…..

   I am Katie Pecarchik, age 50, from Hempfield Township. I am a lifelong Democrat, seeking the candidacy of The Westmoreland County Register of Wills. 

   For over 15 years, I have been working as a full time Deputy Clerk, in the Register of Wills Office. For over thirty years, I have been working as a Notary Public, for my family's business.
   There is no other candidate, that is more experienced, or that is more qualified, for the elected position, of The  Register of Wills. 
    I have worked with the Public, Attorneys, Judges, and their staff, Court Administrators, Children's Bureau, Area on Aging, Title Searchers, PA Department of Revenue, office co-workers, as well as fellow co-workers in the Courthouse. 
    I have personally processed thousands of documents, including Estate Probates, Adoptions, Orphan's Court Petitions, Inheritance Tax, Guardianship and Minor's Claims, and Marriage licenses. I have thorough knowledge of PA laws, regarding Orphan's Court and Estate Proceedings. I am also proficient in our Office's computer and filing systems, including maintaining  daily and monthly reports, and bank deposits. 
    With my years of experience, I want to bring positive change to the Register of Wills position. 
Row Officers, such as The Register of Wills, are not required to be present, at the Office everyday. If elected, I pledge to be a full time Register of Wills. I will be in the Office, during working hours, to make sure that any questions or help, will be given in a timely manner. My door will always be open, and I will encourage new ideas, making  the Office more efficient, and more user-friendly. I  will also work with the staff, to make sure that everyone coming to the Office, receives the highest quality of customer service.
   I have carried out my duties to the highest standard and accuracy, and I am looking forward to working with everyone, to make the Register of Wills Office the best that it can be. 



A Hempfield woman said Friday she wants to run the courthouse office where she has worked for the last 15 years.

Katie Pecarchik, 50, announced she will be a candidate for Register of Wills, the office that oversees estates, wills, adoptions records and marriage licenses. She serves as a deputy clerk in the office.

Pecarchik, a Democrat, is seeking to replace her boss, Republican Sherry Magretti Hamilton, who is expected to seek a second term in office.

“If elected, I pledge to be a full time Register of Wills. I will be in the office during working hours to make sure that any questions or help will be given in a timely manner. My door will always be open, and I will encourage new ideas, making the office more efficient and more user-friendly,” Pecarchik said. “I will also work with the staff to make sure that everyone coming to the office receives the highest quality of customer service.” (VIEW LINK BELOW)
