Candidates for Clerk of the Curtiff Court, Sheriff. Register of Wills and State's Attorney were asked the following questions by The Washington Post:
Management: What changes, if any, would your make in the management and operation of this office?
Callie Mae Heffron (D), incumbent, 60, of 2806 64th Ave., Cheverly, was appointed to the office of Prince George's County register of wills in 1977 and was elected in 1978. A former judge of the orphan's court, she has served on the county's Board of Zoning and Tax Appeals. She belongs to several professional groups.
Management: The register of wills supervises the administration of estates and guardianships of minors, collects inheritance taxes for the state of Maryland and acts as clerk to the orphans' court. The job requires the education, experience and training in public administration and management to insure that the probate process will be rapidly, efficiently and fairly administered for the benefit of all of the citizens of Prince George's County. My record reflects that I am qualified for the following reasons: eight years experience in probate, three of those as a sitting judge of the orphans' court; four years as a member of the Board of Zoning and Tax Appeals of Prince George's County; the modernization of office procedures during my tenure; my ability and experience with the legislative process; and my accounting background.
