Susan Haag started her municipal career as Tax Collector in 2002. Due to the illness of the Town Clerk at that time, Susan ‘stepped in' to help and the rest is history as they say! Susan serves in the Town of Austerlitz, a small rural community in Columbia County, which boarders Massachusetts and contains many second homes for New York City residents. She graduated from Becker Junior College in 1983 and went into the business world as a manager for Young Shoes. Deciding that retail was not for her, Susan joined the ranks in a local bank serving as a loan officer until 1993 when she became a stay at home mom. That is of course, until she ran in her first election in 2002. Susan has
achieved her NYS Town Clerks Association Registered Municipal Clerk designation, and the International Institute of Municipal Clerks Master Municipal Clerk designation. She served as a NYSTCA District Director and President of the Columbia Greene Town Clerks Association.
Married to Robert, Susan has two children, Robert Jr., and Alease Holden. She is an active member of Cornerstone Fellowship Church, and enjoys reading.
