Lynne Buchanan, Guilderland receiver of taxes candidate

Lynne Buchanan

Democrat Lynne Buchanan, who worked as the deputy receiver of taxes under Jean Cataldo for a number of years, but recently transferred into the town comptroller’s office, is running to be the receiver of taxes.
“I worked for three-and-a-half years as the deputy, so it made perfect sense to make this a smooth transition,” Buchanan said.

She said she had worked in financial capacities for most of her life, including helping her family run a small business in Altamont.

“Customer service is number one,” said Buchanan. “I have hours and hours, years and years of customer-service experience.”

She said she enjoys working with the residents, and has missed that aspect of a job since she has been working in the comptroller’s office.

“I would be very comfortable moving into this position,” Buchanan said. “There would be no breaking-in period.”
