North Haverhill — A three-term state representative from northern Grafton County has filed papers with the Secretary of State’s Office to replace the late Bill Sharp as the Republican candidate for register of deeds.

State Rep. Brad Bailey, a 56-year-old insurance firm owner from Monroe, stepped in this week with the blessing of the Republican State Committee to replace Sharp, a Lebanon Republican who died earlier this month at 76, on the ballot.

“The Register of Deeds is a non-partisan position and, if elected, I will serve all the people of Grafton County. Over the last six years, I’ve made many friends regardless of party. Working together gets things done,” Bailey said in a news release.

Bailey is not running for re-election to his New Hampshire House seat, a floterial district representing seven towns in the Littleton area.

On the Democratic side, Register of Deeds Kelley Monahan is facing a challenge in the Sept. 11 primary from fellow Orford resident Liz Gesler.
