Deputy Clerk Sheldon Wright to seek Office of Hamilton County Register of Deeds



Sheldon Wright serves the people of Hamilton County as Deputy Clerk in the Register of Deeds office. Due to Register Pam Hurst’s recent announcement that she will not seek reelection, Mr. Wright is formally announcing his candidacy for the office of Hamilton County Register of Deeds.

Sheldon Wright stated, “It has been a great honor to serve my fellow citizens under the administration of Pam Hurst. Pam’s leadership has been a model of fiscal conservatism and technological forward-thinking. The people of Hamilton County are losing a truly dedicated public servant.”

Mr. Wright also stated that when elected, he will continue building upon Register Hurst’s practices of top-notch customer service, fiscal responsibility, and technological advancement. As an example of Pam’s technological innovation, Mr. Wright cited the recent release of the “Quick Search” program, which was developed specifically to assist title examiners and other records searchers in performing title searches more quickly and efficiently. Mr. Wright commented,

“I thank God and Register Hurst for the experiences and opportunities I have had during my years serving as Deputy Clerk. The Register’s office has really reinforced my strong belief in serving the needs of the people. It is important for the next Register of Deeds to follow Pam’s example of adapting this office’s practices to meet the needs and technologies of the younger generations, without losing the courtesy and respectfulness of older generations. As Register of Deeds, I would continue looking for new and improved methods of serving the people of Hamilton County. With my bachelor’s degree in Legal Assistant Studies from UTC, and soon my law degree from Nashville School of Law, I have the right combination of management skills, legal education, and dedicated work ethic to serve effectively as the next Register of Deeds. In my years of service for Hamilton County, I have developed an appreciation for real property law, and I would be humbled and honored to continue serving the people of Hamilton County, as the next Register of Deeds.”
