Newark Village has a new clerk and treasurer.

Valerie Quade, a Clifton Springs resident, was appointed village clerk. She started her role on January 4th, according to village officials.

Quade previously served as the Accounting Manager at Finger Lakes Health and brings 18 years of experience to the Newark village. She recently received her MBA from Western Governors University.

“I believe Valerie has the skills to be very successful as the next clerk and treasurer,” said outgoing treasurer and clerk Steve Murawski. “Your behavior will enable her to address the problems she will face as the new head of office staff.”

Mayor Jonathan Taylor said in a press release that Quade was “directly immersed” and was already an asset to the community.
