Vicki Hughes was sworn into office on Wednesday, Feb. 1 as the Franklin County Register of Deeds. Vicki replaces Sue McCay, who resigned from her position as of Jan. 31 in conjunction with her retirement from the County.
McCay’s resignation came in the middle of a four-year term, so the local party held a convention to name a replacement. The name of the replacement, Vicki Hughes, was then submitted to the governor for approval.
Vicki has worked for the County for eight years, most recently as the Deputy Register of Deeds. She credits much of her knowledge of property and real estate records to former Register of Deeds Sue McCay and Deputy Register of Deeds Debbie Harris-Eckoff.
“I’m honored to serve the public and the County in this capacity. The support from the community has been amazing and I hope to serve as the Register of Deeds for many years to come,” said Vicki.
Vicki and her husband Randy are long-time residents of Ottawa, and together they have four sons.
In order to retain the position, Vicki will have to run as a candidate in the 2024 election cycle.
