Ed Stiner, Register of Deeds

Ed Stiner, Jefferson County Register of Deeds, is announcing plans to seek re-election in the May 3rd Republican Primary. Stiner said, “It is my distinct honor and privilege to serve the people of Jefferson County as the Register of Deeds.”

During his time in office, Stiner has trimmed his budget every year by instituting cost saving measures, such as going paperless. Stiner also works with the Jefferson County High School Service Learning Program, welcoming students to his office in a work/study capacity. The students mainly work scanning old Register’s record books to digital form, a vitally needed service to the citizens of Jefferson County. The students, in turn, receive high school credit and valuable work experience. According to Stiner, “These students have saved our taxpayers thousands of dollars by performing this much-needed service as opposed to hiring an outside digital company to do the work.” He also implemented e-filing in his office and purchased a plat printer for public use, charging only a nominal fee to cover actual printing costs. Additionally, the Register of Deeds office is a fee-based office by state law, Stiner said, “This means little to no taxpayer monies are used to fund this office.” Stiner is most proud of the fact there has never been a finding against his office from any Tennessee Comptroller’s State Audits.

He is quick to praise his staff as professional and knowledgeable. “The ladies who work in the office know the instruments we record and services we offer from top to bottom,” said Stiner. “I have the utmost respect for their dedication and abilities.”

A native of Jefferson County, Ed Stiner is a graduate of Tusculum College with a B.S. in Business Management and holds a graduate degree from the Louisiana State University School of Banking. He and his wife, Susan reside in New Market. They have 2 daughters, Lori Stiner Tucker and Wendi Stiner and a grandson, Beau Peck Tucker. Ed is the son of the late Max Stiner and the late Helen (Peck) Stiner.

Stiner achieved Certified Public Administrator status through the University of Tennessee County Technical Assistance Services continuing education division and County Officials Training Program. He also successfully completed the Local Government Leadership Program through the Naifeh Center for Effective Leadership in conjunction with he Institute for Public Service at the University of Tennessee. He was the only Register of Deeds across the state invited to participate in the that program. He is a past President of the East Tennessee Register’s Association, has served as Legislative chairperson for the Tennessee Register of Deeds Association, and is a past State Board Member and Chaplain for the County Officials Association of Tennessee.

I want to thank the citizens of Jefferson County for electing me to serve as your Register of Deeds.” Stiner stated. “I humbly ask for your continued support and vote as I seek re-election in the May 3rd Republican Primary.”
