Pam Hurst, Hamilton County Register of Deeds, will seek re-election in 2014. 

Ms. Hurst was elected in 1994 and is serving her 20th year in office. The register’s office records deeds and other instruments required or allowed to be filed by law such as deeds, powers of attorney, mortgages, marriage settlements, etc. The register is also responsible for collecting and accounting for all fees and taxes due as allowed by law.  

“I am fortunate to have been put in the position to run this office by the constituents of Hamilton County, Tennessee. This job is an important one, and I appreciate all the trust that has been given to me and our office by the citizens,” said Ms. Hurst.

The register’s office turned in $1.3 million excess fees in 2012, in addition to turning in substantial excess fees every year since she was elected.

Ms. Hurst has served as president of the Tennessee Register’s Association in 1998-1999. She also served as the 2005-2006 president of the County Officials’ Association of Tennessee. More notably, in 2012 she was awarded the prestigious County Officials’ Association County Official of the Year Award.

Ms. Hurst said, “I am grateful for an outstanding staff and look forward to another four years working alongside these dedicated individuals, as well as continuing to serve our wonderful county.”
