NEW HANOVER COUNTY — Republican Kimberly K. Phillips is one at least three candidates challenging incumbent Tammy Beasley for the county’s Register of Deeds position. Phillips will face Beasley in a Republican primary in March.

Phillips is a longtime Wilmington resident who has worked in Register of Deeds office for almost 10 years; she was formerly the senior assistant to Beasley.

According to a release from Phillips’ campaign, her focus is to “‘get back to the basics’ implementing new customer service initiatives, while collaborating with local companies, businesses and entities. Phillips aims to “use the incredible platform of that of an elected official that is also backed by County Government resources to move the department forward with much-needed programs and free services, including counseling to citizens that interact with Vital Records, Marriage License and Thank-a-Veteran services at the Register of Deeds office.”

Phillips said she has 25 years of customer service experience, including 17 years working for New Hanover County. She said she has received “numerous awards for customer service excellence and professionalism, along with first-hand experience including but not limited too; managing the [Register of Deed’s] budget, staff supervision and being instrumental in the creation of the “Love is in the Air” and “Fireworks of Love” free wedding events and the start-up of the ROD’s Satellite Office located at the NHC Government Center.”

“The possibilities are truly endless of what we can give back to our citizens,” Phillips said.
