GENESEO – Livingston County Clerk Andrea Bailey, who has been acting county clerk since December, has declared her candidacy for the office.
Mary Strickland, the most recent county clerk, announced her retirement at the end of 2020.
Bailey, who has been deputy county clerk since 2016, will seek a full term as county clerk in November’s general election.
“I am excited to share my vision for the County Clerk’s Office with the voters of Livingston County,” Bailey said. “As Deputy Clerk, and now Acting Clerk, I have been involved with all leadership decisions and oversight of the day-to-day operations over the last several years. This experience, combined with over 20 years I spent in the private sector business world, will allow me to seamlessly deliver the high level of services that our residents have come to expect from the County Clerk’s Office.”
Bailey also serves as a member of the Geneseo Town Board and is chair of the Livingston County Workplace Violence Prevention Committee. She is also a founding member of the charitable organizations Lifting Up Livingston Inc. and the Livingston County Sheriff’s Foundation Inc.
Bailey received her bachelor of science from State University College at Buffalo.
Before being appointed to deputy clerk, she spent more than 20 years in the private sector in high-level management positions.
Bailey, a lifelong resident of Livingston County, lives in Geneseo with her husband, Jon, and their their children.
