Three Vie For Stamford Town Clerk/Tax Collector Seat

STAMFORD - Three candidates vie for the Stamford town clerk and tax collector position as Diane Grant will retire from the position after several years of service. Candidates include Ruthanne Van Buren, For the People party; Usha Tagiaferro, Unbreakable party; and Cheryl A. Barr Miglianti, Republican party.
Van Buren felt the clerk and tax collector position would be a perfect transition from her time as a legal secretary and when discovering Grant would leave the position open, she ran. "I have been doing customer service and secretary positions for the past 28 years and I believe this would be a great way for me to continue serving our community," she said. Van Buren said the position is about helping people. "I am good at that," she said, "If you know me, you know that my experience and personality make me perfect for the job."
Tagliaferro welcomes the opportunity and responsibility as a new way to serve the town, she said. She has lived in the village since 2006 and has 35 years of administrative experience. "Over the years, I have taken great pleasure in getting to know the people of this lovely community through my various forms of employment: the nursing home, the pharmacy, the thrift store, the Catholic Church," said Tagliaferro, "My heart of service would only be made fuller, serving in a broader capacity, as Stamford Town Clerk."
The Mountain Eagle was unable to get in contact with Barr Miglianti by press time.
Two council seats with four-year terms are up for election. Republicans Brent Trimbell and Roderick A. Hillis are both running for re-election.
Trimbell is running for a second term. "I enjoy making a difference for our town," said Trimbell, "Stamford is a very well-run town with many checks and balances. With an open mindset and willingness to change, I help the town government run smoothly."
Hillis is running for a fourth term as a council member. "I really enjoy it and think we handle situations well with the team we have," he said.
Conservative John S. Kosier is running unopposed for re-election as town supervisor, a two-year term. Republican Jonathan R. Ballard is running for re-election as superintendent of highways, a four-year term. Republicans Paul E. Koerner Jr and Sharon L. Anderson are both running for re-election as town assessors. Two town assessor positions will appear on the ballot as four-year terms.
Elections will take place on Nov. 7 from 6 a.m. until 9 p.m. at the Community Center at 80 Cornell Ave Hobart Early voting from Oct. 28 until Nov. 5 will be held at the Board of Election Office in Delhi from 8:30 a.m. until 4 p.m.
