Ridgeway deputy clerk says her experience would be smooth transition to town clerk

Posted 15 June 2021 at 9:07 pm


My name is Laurie Kilburn and I’m currently the Deputy Town Clerk for the Town of Ridgeway. Karen Kaiser, the current Town Clerk, is retiring at the end of this year and therefore I am running for the office of Town Clerk.  I am a lifelong resident of Ridgeway, a dedicated Republican, and have been endorsed by the Conservative Party.

I have been Deputy Town Clerk for over two years and have had the privilege of receiving hands-on training from the Town Clerk. During this time, I’ve learned many duties of the Town Clerk’s office including processing dog licenses, issuing birth, death and marriage licenses, using the DEC system to issue hunting and fishing licenses, records management, tax collection, time keeping and payroll. I’ve also had the opportunity to learn duties that are not performed on a daily basis such as how water districts are formed as well as creating and maintaining cemetery documentation.

I continually focus on my career by attending trainings via webinars and have had the opportunity to attend the NYS Town Clerk’s Conference during my first year as Deputy Town Clerk. Although there is always more to learn, I believe I have the experience and dedication needed to make a smooth transition during the change in office.

I’m asking for the voter’s support on Primary Day, Tuesday, June 22nd.

I will work to make the transition as smooth as possible by serving you with honesty, dedication and respect. Thank you for your support.
