Great-Grandma's Example - My Great-Grandma Mattie Givens was left alone to raise 4 sons in the Idaho desert, and yet she built a commercial hot spring, hotel, school, and community starting in the 1880's. Back then a woman could not own property in her own name. But property ownership is fundamental to the stability of families and businesses.    read more

Erin's Corner

Where were you on March 18th?   I was home with my family as we were processing the gathering storm of health, business, education and legal issues like dark clouds on the horizon.  As I thought about the most critical issues we could face as a society, one of the first was the need for people to feel secure in their home ownership. 

So the next day, I registered to run for the Salt Lake County Recorder position.  Why?  My concern that the gathering storm of issues our country faced could jeopardize the security of our property rights, particularly in our county – my home.

Over the past 5 months I have spoken with property owners and others impacted by issues that can be traced back to the SL County Recorder’s Office. 

Some have involved issues home owner’s difficulty searching for their property records.  Some have dealt with filings made against their property they never knew about, but are too late to easily challenge now.  Others have dealt with inaccurate records filed that intentionally or unintentionally jeopardize their property. 

So over the past 5 months my initial concerns have only increased.   I am convinced that we need to make changes to the Salt Lake County Recorder’s Office to property records transparent, searchable and accurate.  That is why I am running for the position of SL County Recorder.
