Conservatives expected to endorse Jacobs for re-election as county clerk

Incumbent Republican Christopher L. Jacobs is expected to receive the Conservative endorsement for county clerk on Tuesday evening.

Erie County Conservative Chairman Ralph C. Lorigo said he anticipates his committee members will repeat their support for Jacobs as they did in the clerk’s first election in 2010.

“I consider the clerk’s job as nonpartisan and constituent-oriented,” Lorigo said. “In this case, Chris fits the bill 100 percent.”

Erie County Democrats have not yet selected a candidate, with Chairman Jeremy J. Zellner indicating he is “still looking.”
