Jaeger running for second term as Amherst town clerk

Amherst Town Clerk Marjory H. Jaeger is running for a second term.

Jaeger, 44, of Williamsville, made the announcement Monday.

The Republican won 60 percent of the vote in 2011, but it is not yet clear what challengers she might face in November.

Jaeger, who also is the town’s tax receiver, pointed to several changes during her time in charge of the Town Clerk’s Office, including expanding online access, implementing a birth certificate ID card system and extending the expiration dates of parking tags for the handicapped from three years to five.

“I look forward to continued success delivering quality services while saving the town money,” Jaeger said.

Jaeger previously served as town clerk for five months in 2008 after being appointed by board Republicans to finish an unexpired term.

Jaeger was narrowly defeated in that November’s election.

A lifelong resident of the town and a political science graduate of the University at Buffalo, Jaeger previously worked for the Erie County Board of Elections before being appointed to the clerk’s seat in 2008.

She subsequently worked as a staff assistant with the UB Police Department.

A volunteer firefighter with the Williamsville Fire Department, Jaeger also has served on four town committees since 1992, including the Planning Board, the Government Study Committee, the Citizens School Board Task Force and the Solid Waste Advisory Committee.
