Doris Lewis deserves our vote
In the race for Register of Wills for Dorchester County there is only one qualified candidate: Doris K. Lewis. Any objective side-by-side comparison of Mrs. Lewis and Mr. Colburn leaves no doubt who should be elected.
Mrs. Lewis has a college degree in business and legal studies from Goldey Beacom college in Delaware. She worked for 17 years in a legal office specializing in probate, business and real estate law before being elected Register of Wills 44 years ago. She has testified before the Maryland legislature on matters of estate and probate administration, and is highly regarded by the attorneys and clients she has served. Anyone who has had business in the Dorchester County Register of Wills office will attest to her professionalism and compassion. She has held several leadership positions in the Maryland Register of Wills Association. Additionally, she has taken classes through the Maryland Institute for Continuing Professional Education for Lawyers, as well as classes in accounting. Maryland audits the Register of Wills office every two years and Mrs. Lewis’s office never failed an audit.
Mr. Colburn lists no educational background, legal or otherwise, and no relevant experience. His desire to provide “good constituent service” is simply not enough to warrant election to this important office. One has to have demonstrable knowledge of the estates and trust section of the Annotated Code of Maryland. Mrs. Lewis has this. Mr. Colburn does not.
Simply put Doris K. Lewis deserves our vote. LINDA CHANDLEE
