Republican Vicki Pearson has announced her candidacy for Huntington County recorder.

Pearson, 56, of Huntington, currently serves as deputy recorder/clerical assistant in the recorder’s office. She has been in that role since April 2015 and her responsibilities include assisting customers, answering the phone, indexing documents and verifying that documents brought to the office meet state statutes.

“With the experience that I’ve had, working in the office for the past, almost three years, plus the experience that I’ve had in the past, I feel that this is just my next step,” says Pearson. “And both personally and professionally, I think I’m ready to do this.”

Prior to joining the recorder’s office, Pearson worked in the title insurance industry for 31 years. During that time, she owned a company, Lime City Title, and accrued experience working in management, bookkeeping and in closing real estate transactions. She also worked as a mortgage broker.

“So, I know about the documents that come into the recorder’s office to be recorded, because I’ve had that experience,” notes Pearson.

If elected as recorder, Pearson has two main objectives for the office.

“To continue with the customer service that we give,” she says. “To also make sure that we continue to be very diligent in the indexing of the documents that come in, because that’s how the searchers and the title companies and everybody finds all of their information for their clients in order to go back and do the closing of the real estate and that kind of stuff.”

In her free time, Pearson serves as president of the American Business Women’s Association Forks of the Wabash Chapter. She was named the chapter’s 2016 Woman of the Year. She has also volunteered with the United Way of Huntington County, Habitat for Humanity and the Indiana Dream Center.

A lifelong Huntington resident, Pearson resides on a farm at 8817N-400W with her husband of 35 years, Ron. She has a son, Chad. Another son, Chris, is deceased. She also has two grandsons, Devin and Dyson.
