Rosemary Centi for town clerk
By Anne Hayden
GUILDERLAND Democratic incumbent Rosemary Centi is running unopposed for another two-year term as town clerk. She has been Guilderland’s clerk since 2000, and was unopposed in the last three elections.
A graduate of Siena College with a degree in secondary education, Centi has been married for 31 years, and has three children Daniel, Justin, and Jacqueline.
As town clerk for the past nine years, Centi said she has instituted online access to records and forms, established her office as a passport location, and secured funding for a record-storage facility on Western Avenue.
In her position, Centi said she is responsible for licensing and permitting; she is the marriage officer, the FOIL officer, a passport agent, and the recording secretary for the town board meetings. She is also a secretary to the state’s town clerks association, a registered municipal clerk, past regional director for the state’s town clerks association, and past president of the Albany-Schenectady town clerks association.
“My favorite part of the job is going to the counter to wait on people,” said Centi. “My office is really open; we even have an empty desk for anyone who wants to come in and peruse the records, or just chat. I love to have people do that. And my deputies are also very accessible, and very good at what they do.”
