Amherst Town Clerk Marjory Jaeger, a registered Conservative, has the unanimous backing of her party's committee in her bid for town supervisor.
The Conservative committee on Wednesday also endorsed party chairman Bill Kindel and Erin Baker for two open seats on the Town Board, and Kara Buscaglia for a second four-year term as town justice. Baker and Buscaglia also have been endorsed by the town's Republican committee.
Meanwhile, the town's Democratic committee last month endorsed Williamsville Mayor Brian J. Kulpa for town supervisor, Buscaglia for town justice and Shawn Lavin and Jacqualine Berger for the council seats.
