Cheektowaga Supervisor Diane Benczkowski endorsed Angela Marinucci for Erie County Clerk today. Marinucci is an attorney and small business owner. She cited Marinucci’s private sector experience and her plans to expand the use of technology to cut wait times and improve services for customers. Marinucci wants to offer individuals access to more of their documents online, cut the pistol permit backlog, and expand the Child ID program to allow parents to include their child’s health information.
“Angela Marinucci has the background, experience, and fresh ideas to reimagine the Clerk’s office and make it work better for the people of Erie County. I know she’ll protect taxpayers and put the public’s interest ahead of politics,” said Benczkowski. “As the only woman in county-wide office, Angela will also bring an important perspective to government that we need now more than ever. I’m excited about her campaign and proud to endorse Angela Marinucci for Erie County Clerk.”
“The County Clerk’s office plays a key role in so many major milestones: starting a business, buying a home, and getting a driver’s license,” said Marinucci. “As an attorney, I have spent my career helping my clients navigate complex governmental systems, and I want to use those skills to help the residents of Erie County in the Clerk’s office. I am committed to ensuring that our tax dollars are spent wisely. Before elected officials ask for more money or more staff, they must ensure that they are making full use of the resources they are given.”
Marinucci has also been endorsed by Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul, the Western New York AFL-CIO, The Women’s TAP Fund, United Auto Workers and Buffalo Building Trades. She lives on Grand Island with her husband and three daughters.
