City Councillor-at-Large Noel DiBona officially announces his candidacy for Register of Probate of Norfolk County.
DiBona, who began his political career in 2013 as a Quincy School Committee member, has served as a Quincy city councillor-at-large since 2016, and has been elected to three consecutive terms. If elected as the Register of Probate, DiBona said he will continue to serve in his councilor-at-large seat and complete the remainder of his current two-year term.
DiBona has been a small business owner in Quincy for the last 24 years, managing Russ DiBona & Son Landscape & Snow. DiBona graduated from Quincy High School in 1993, and holds a bachelor’s degree in sociology and business administration from the University of Massachusetts-Boston.
DiBona has been employed by the Norfolk County Sheriff’s office since 2016, where he currently serves as re-entry program coordinator for inmates. DiBona previously served as a senior community services coordinator for the Sheriff’s office, assisting senior citizens in scam and fraud prevention at facilities for the elderly throughout Norfolk County. If elected as the Register of the Probate, DiBona said he plans to improve all services provided by the court, and pledges to be a consistent strong advocate for attorneys, judges, clients, and citizens.
“I am seeking the seat as the Register of Probate of Norfolk County because I have a strong desire to serve and assist others. Virtually everyone will encounter an experience with probate, whether it is a birth, a death, or divorce. Your experience with the court should be managed with compassion and empathy. I will apply my business management background to the official record keeping and customer service areas of the court to ensure that the public always has the best experience possible, especially during tough times,” DiBona said.
“The decision to run for Norfolk County Register of Probate has been a family decision. Following discussions with my wife, Niamh, and other family members we collaboratively decided that I should seek the seat and they are all 100% behind the decision,” DiBona added.
DiBona will be running as a Democrat. The primary election is set for Tuesday, Sept. 1st and if successful in the primary, the final election will be on Nov. 3rd.
The Committee to Elect Noel DiBona will be holding a campaign kickoff event at Alba Restaurant at 1486 Hancock St. in Quincy Center on Thursday, Feb. 27th from 5 to 8 p.m. Members of the public are encouraged to attend.
