POUGHKEEPSIE – Common Council Chairwoman Ann Finney is finishing her term and leadership position and looked back her time on the Poughkeepsie council.

Finney sees volunteerism as key to the growth of the city. “My biggest accomplishment, actually, is something I can take with me, which is meeting the volunteers, the board members, the people active in the community, everyone who is so committed, so involved and really gives me a lot of optimism about the city and the future of the city,” she said.

Councilperson Sarah Salem will assume the role of councilperson-at-large and chair in the new year.
