About the Clerk/Treasurer

There are fewer more vital positions within our local government than the Clerk/Treasurer. She is our public relations officer, recording secretary, records management officer, records access officer, licensing officer, election officer, cash control officer and our Registrar of Vital Statistics.

That position is held by Stillwater lifelong resident Sheristin “Sher” Tedesco, who was appointed Village Clerk/Treasurer on July 16, 2012. Tedesco, who graduated as Sheristin Dunn from Stillwater Central Schools as a member of the Class of 1988, has an impressive resume of experience working for many years as an Office Manager/Assistant in the private sector.

Sher Tedesco

Tedesco earned a bachelor’s degree in Business Management in 1992 from the New York State University at Plattsburgh. After college, she worked for three years in the business office of FPI Mechanical, Inc., in Cohoes.

After she and her husband, John Tedesco, had their son, Johnny, she went to work part time for 12 years as the Office Manager at Fascia Floor Covering in Mechanicville. Before taking on her new role as Village Clerk, Tedesco worked for a year as Office Manager at Weld Computer Corp in the Rensselaer Technology Park.

Her family has a long history in Stillwater. Her grandfather (on her father’s side) owned the former Dunn Farm. Her grandmother (one her mother’s side), was the late Jane Nielsen, who was born on the Nielsen Farm at the historic Saratoga Battlefield, Bemis Heights. As a longtime member of the Stillwater Historical Society, Jane Nielson gave tours of the Stillwater Blockhouse, before it was moved to the village.
