MOXHAM ANNOUNCES CANDIDACY FOR NIAGARA COUNTY CLERK

Local businesswoman wants to focus on increasing access and local share of revenue

Jamie Moxham, a successful small businesswoman from the Village of Wilson, has announced her candidacy for Niagara County Clerk. She is seeking to replace long-time clerk Wayne Jagow and would become the first woman to ever be elected to the position.

“I am the only candidate with the private-sector experience necessary to make a difference for county residents. We have seen the costs of county government go up every year while our level of service and access has decreased,” said Moxham.

Moxham’s strong background in accounting and management, having worked for several large corporations, means she is well suited to handling the task of running the county clerk’s office.

“One of the biggest complaints I hear from our working men and women is the lack of access to county services both at the clerk’s office and our DMV’s. Our working families are paying among the highest property taxes in the state and still have difficulty accessing the very office they pay for,” said Moxham.

Moxham, a long-time resident of the Village of Wilson, lives with her husband Walter Moxham – a well-known local attorney - and has two adult sons in college. She has been active in the local community for years and was instrumental in the renovation of the Wilson Boat House. She also started a non-profit group with her husband which provides free swim lessons for the children in the village and town of Wilson who didn’t have access to a public pool.

“Through the Wilson Community Enhancement Charity, we’ve been able to help as many as 250 children every summer and the list of summer events surrounding the harbor have been a tremendous benefit to the quality of life for area residents,” said Moxham.

In addition to her business activities, Moxham is also an active sports booster, a member of “Save our Schools,” and is active in the Niagara County Vietnam Veterans group to which her husband belongs. She is currently the elected Democratic Chairwoman for the Town of Wilson Democratic Committee.
