Election March 2016: Steven M. Carter

Name: Steven M. Carter
City of Residence: Youngstown
Party Affiliation: Republican
Office Desired: County Recorder

Why should you be elected
I have been a licensed Real Estate Broker most of my adult life because of the value I place on home ownership. Achieving and protecting those rights has always been my priority. What most homeowners fail to realize is that their ownership rights are never absolute. Many things affect and/or limit the extent of those rights and on occasion can challenge those rights. With identity theft so prevalent today homeowners need every tool at their disposal to protect themselves. The County Recorder’s office can, and should, be one of those tools.
If elected my priority would be upgrade the office to make it such a tool for the general public.

Top three priorities

If elected I would strive to modernize the office to make it an interactive tool for public access by:

1) Allowing online access to documents pertaining to the history of the County and how that has affected and continues to affect the heritage of the County.
2) Allow more documents to be accessed and viewed online to allow owner’s to research documents that pertain to their homes in lieu of the arduous task of searching through microfiche and archives.
3) My number one goal, however, would be to see the office take a pro-active stance in property protection by automatically texting/emailing properties owner’s a notice anytime anything records that pertains to their property.

With 38 years of experience as a Real Estate and Mortgage Loan Broker, I have extensive knowledge of the many types of recorded documents and an understanding of how these affect home ownership.
As the county recorder I will use that experience to fulfill the primary responsibility of that office, which is to preserve a clear and concise record of property ownership, and to the help preserve and protect the hundreds of years of recorded history contained in the recorder’s office.
