Krebs Runs For FDL County Register Of Deeds

Fond du Lac County Deputy Register of Deeds Jim Krebs is running for the Register of Deeds seat this fall. Krebs grew up in Rosendale and got a degree at the UW-Oshkosh. He also spent six years in the National Guard. He says he has the experience to do the job. He worked as a real estate property searcher and title examiner. In 2013 then Register of Deeds Patricia Kraus hired him as Deputy. Krebs says they deal in real estate documents and vital records like birth, death and marriage certificates. He says they have been entrusted with important documents. He says competent decisions have to be made about the best way to maintain the documents and the best method of making those documents successful for the future. He says he would like to see the office implement credit cards as an acceptable form of payment. He says that would then allow them put the land record management system online. Krebs faces incumbent Register of Deeds Shawn Kelly this fall.
