HEBRON — Daniel J. Eichorn is announcing his candidacy for the Democratic nomination in the June 8 primary election for the Oxford County East Register of Deeds.

Eichorn’s plan for the office is to work toward a merger of the county’s two registries, according to a news release issued by his campaign.

“Within my first year in office, I will present a detailed plan to the Oxford County commissioners for the merger of the East and West registries at the Paris location,” Eichorn said in a prepared statement.

“This merger is now possible, thanks to the digitizing of records, and would save the taxpayers of the county at least $70,000 per year.”

“I look forward to continuing the path that the retiring register, Jane Rich, has laid out for digitizing recorded documents. I will also put a plan in place to have recorded maps digitized.”

Eichorn, a native Mainer, has lived in Hebron for the past eight years, with his wife and two daughters, according to his release.

He has been an attorney for the past 10 years, and worked for nine years in the desktop publishing industry prior to and during law school, performing many managerial tasks.

Eichorn is currently a  Hebron selectman, and was on the town’s Planning Board for several years prior, his release states.

He is the treasurer of both the Oxford County Regional Solid Waste Corp. and the Oxford County Trial Lawyers Assocation.

He is also a member of the Norway-Paris Kiwanis Club, and coaches his daughters’ basketball and softball teams.

“I look forward to using my experience as an attorney, a businessman and a civic leader to benefit the people of Oxford County as their next Register of Deeds,” Eichorn said.
