Maryann Heuston Announces Run for Register of Deeds

Ward 2 Alderman Maryann Heuston is endorsed by current Register or Deeds, and former mayor of Somerville, Eugene Brune, according to an announcement from Heuston.

The following was provided by Ward 2 Alderman Maryann Heuston:

SOMERVILLE – Ward 2 Alderman Maryann Heuston today announced her candidacy for Southern Middlesex County Register of Deeds, and was immediately endorsed by current Register Eugene C. Brune, who is stepping down after 24 years in office. Heuston has served as a Somerville alderman for twelve years, including five years as Chair of the Board’s Finance Committee.  She currently works as Director of Ambulatory Business Operations for the Cambridge Health Alliance.

In accepting the endorsement, Heuston said, “As Register, Gene Brune set the highest standards for integrity, efficiency and customer service. After three decades as a senior operations and systems administrator for several major health care organizations – and after twelve years as an elected official with a focus on finance and budget issues – I’m confident that I can live up to those high standards as a customer-oriented, performance-driven and fiscally responsible Register of Deeds.” 

“I’m very proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish in terms of enhancing the customer service, professionalism and technological efficiency of the Middlesex Registry of Deeds,” said Brune. “I have faith in Maryann’s ability to build on that legacy.  She actually brings some valuable technical qualifications that I didn’t have when I first took on the job.”

In addition to the Brune endorsement, Heuston’s candidacy has also been backed by State Representative Tim Toomey (D-Cambridge), State Representative Denise Provost (D-Somerville), State Representative Carl Sciortino (D-Medford), and nine of her 10 colleagues on the Somerville Board of Aldermen.

“My background is uniquely suited to the position of Register of Deeds.  Strong administrative and financial experience is crucial to maintaining quality of service for the largest and busiest land records office in New England,” Heuston said. “Over the next seven months, I will continue to build on the support of my fellow elected officials in state and local government, and on the encouragement I have received from friends and colleagues throughout Middlesex County, to bring my campaign to all of the 44 cities and towns in the southern district.”

Based in Cambridge, the Register of Deeds is responsible for maintaining an accurate, authoritative and accessible archive of real estate and land use documents for the entire Southern District of Middlesex County. The primary election is scheduled for September 6th.

i have been going in and out of the registry of deeds building for 27 years. gene brune has done an excellent job as regester. more importantly his tenure there has been above reproach. his integrity in office is in marked contrast to two other somervillians in high positions at the county who resigned in disgrace.(actually one was removed from office by TheSupreme Judicial Court, an extremely rare action. ironically, that very person, antonelli,has the gaul to to state that he is interested in and probably will run for gene's job. how sick is that?) as to miss hueston, she is known as the 'developers best friend'. certainly, she was well aware of the facts surrounding the granting of a licence to a front that says it will build a hotel at the beacon st. bridge. this place is in her ward and and it was supported by her. she would have to have been oblivious not to recognise what was going on. but gene says she's ok ,so maybe she deserves a second look. i had thought of running for the office. my slogan would have been"a good job with good wages, that i can do." the registry requires good management not genius. in the old days the register hardly showed up for work and the department was overloaded with patronage employees. gene brune changed that. happy trails to you gene. the endorsement of miss hueston by representative provost is a big plus. representative provost is the best civil servant in town.
