Linda Hee for Montco Recorder of Deeds

Linda M. Hee is the Democratic candidate for Recorder of Deeds in Montgomery County.  If you are wondering what a Recorder of Deeds does, here is the description on the county website:

The mission of the Montgomery County Recorder of Deeds office is to maintain the integrity of all land records and other documents entrusted to the department as well as the collection and monthly distribution of County/State fees and Real Estate Transfer Taxes for the State, Townships, Boroughs and School Districts; while efficiently serving the public with complete accountability and responsibility.  This office does not depend upon the County tax dollars to operate. The office of the Recorder of Deeds is self-sufficient and generates a profit (over the operating expenses) for the Montgomery County General Fund.

Like many local and county candidates there is not a lot of information out there about Ms. Deeds Hee, either in newspapers or on the internet.  This is the biographical statement on the county Democratic organization's website (with some family information redacted):

Linda M. Hee is Assistant Counsel to Philadelphia Corporation for Aging, the nation’s fourth largest Area Agency on Aging. Linda represents the agency in a variety of civil proceedings arising under the Older Adults Protective Services Act. Previously, Linda served as Assistant Counsel for the AIDS Law Project of Pennsylvania, where she was a general practitioner representing individuals with AIDS. Linda received her J.D. from Temple University Beasley School of Law in 1999 and her B.A. in Mathematics and Philosophy from the University of Scranton in 1993.  Linda has been a Democratic Committee Person for about ten years and is currently a committeeperson in Abington’s 11-2, where she lives with her husband, and their son. She was recently appointed as a Hearing Officer for the Pennsylvania Disciplinary Board and was listed on the First Judicial District’s 2010 Pro Bono Roll of Honor for her volunteer work at the Face to Face Legal Clinic in Germantown.
