MARQUETTE –An area native is officially Marquette County’s new register of deeds.

Aidan McKindles was sworn into the position on Monday. McKindles replaces Carla L’Huillier, who resigned from her position as of Sept. 16 in conjunction with her retirement from the county.

L’Huillier’s resignation came in the middle of a four-year term, so Marquette County Prosecutor Matt Wiese, Probate Judge Cheryl Hill and county Clerk Linda Talsma formed a committee to appoint a replacement for the elected positon.

“I’m honored to take on the role of the register of deeds of Marquette County,” McKindles said in an email on Monday.

“Taking on the responsibility for officially recording all land records for the county has been a goal of mine for some time.

“I’m honored to serve the public and the county in this capacity and look forward to continuing the excellent reputation the Register’s Office has had throughout the past years under the leadership of Carla L’Huillier.”

McKindles is a Marquette Senior High School alumna who graduated from Northern Michigan University in 2004 with degrees in both political science and English.

She also has a year of paralegal training from Lake Superior State University.

She worked as a paralegal for about six years before moving into real estate research and escrow for nine years.

She currently resides in Marquette with her two children.

In order to retain the position, McKindles will have to run as a candidate in the 2024 presidential election cycle.
