ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan is set to discuss the city’s response to the coronavirus pandemic at a 4 p.m. forum with the Capital Region Chamber of Commerce.
Words from the mayor are scheduled to take place from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday via a livestream. Register online to participate.
Sheehan’s management of the city—during not only the pandemic, but a summer of public unrest surrounding the death of George Floyd—has had its fair share of proponents and detractors. One extreme measure Sheehan took was foregoing her salary in an attempt to keep the city budget balanced.
The Capital Region Chamber says that even in the face of uncertainty, “Mayor Sheehan’s sound fiscal management continues to lead the City to a strong and sustainable future.”
In addition to COVID, Sheehan is scheduled to speak on ongoing transformative investments in Albany neighborhoods, rezoning of the city, and residential and commercial development.
