Moxham announces bid for Niagara County clerk


Sat, Oct 17th 2015 11:10 am

Jamie Moxham is a candidate for the office of Niagara County clerk. She is the wife of Lockport attorney Walter Moxham and is the mother of two sons, Brennan and Zach. Moxham is a resident of Wilson and attended State University of New York at Buffalo.

Moxham was an auditor for the Merrill Lynch Pierce Fenner and Smith accounting department. Her work required her to be bonded and insured, handling treasury bonds and notes involving millions of dollars in transactions. She was controller/accounting and systems manager for Ellis Singer Advertising and was office manager and director of accounting and systems for 20 years for Miskell and Moxham Attorney's at Law, where she updated technology and accounting systems. She also is a notary public. Moxham was previously sole proprietor of the Wilson Boat House. Moxham and her husband started a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit Charity, W.C.E.C. Inc. She is also owner of Harbor Marketing Properties of Wilson.

Her Wilson Community Charity helped raise millions of dollars to build a swimming facility for the Wilson School District and for the use of citizens from infants to seniors. And as a civic and community leader, she was instrumental in raising money for the Johnson family of Wilson, whose home was destroyed in an explosion. Moxham also served as chair for Wilson All Sports Boosters. She is a third-term Wilson Democratic Party chairwoman and a charter member of S.O.S., a group supporting Wilson Public Schools.

Moxham believes in public financing to reduce the influence of money in politics, especially on government bidding. She also would encourage the "Keep it Green Campaign," which would produce a self-addressed, postage-paid envelope for registration renewals, which would return 12.7 percent to the county resulting in a $1.2 million revenue stream each year. Also she would be open to discussing opening the DMV for Saturday hours for the convenience of taxpayers.

Protecting and maintaining records in the clerks office by promoting e-filing of documents for real estate transfers and actions, civil suits and other matters would be essential. This would promote efficiency, increase speed, reduce expenses and greatly reduce overall cost.

Moxham will appear on the Democratic and Working Families lines. She also earned the endorsement of the Western Region of the Civil Service Employees Association Local 832 and the Lockport Firefighters, as well as multiple groups who represent working family.

CSEA acknowledged Moxham "for your interests in the issues affecting workers and addressing the needs of all hard working men and women in your county."
