Greensburg woman says she will seek Republican nomination for Register of Wills in 2019
A one-time deputy in Westmoreland County’s Register of Wills office wants her former boss’ job.
Kimberly Horrell, 54, of Greensburg on Tuesday announced she will run next year as a Republican for the office’s top position.
Sherry Magretti Hamilton, the incumbent Republican Register of Wills, has not announced if she will seek a second full term for the courthouse office that oversees estate records, marriage licenses and adoption records.
Horrell served as the second deputy in the office under Hamilton from January 2016 through February 2018. She currently works as a department specialist contracted through inSync Staffing and previously served as a prevention education specialist with Westmoreland Community Action.
Horrell was unsuccessful last year in her bid against long-time Democratic incumbent Prothonotary Christina O’Brien.
