POUGHKEEPSIE – Mayor Rob Rolison officially presented his nominee for the Poughkeepsie City Chamberlain’s position at Monday night’s council meeting for the lawmakers to confirm the appointment. The council confirmed Davis in a 9-0 vote.
Jasmin Davis, a 31-year-old native of Poughkeepsie, has been nominated by Rolison to replace Deanne Flynn, who recently left the city to take a position in the office of the Dutchess County Clerk.
Davis is currently employed as the assistant marketing director for the Poughkeepsie Galleria and will be transitioning to her new role with the city in the next two weeks, after Monday’s confirmation. Davis is not unfamiliar with the city government and currently serves on the city’s Waterfront Advisory Committee.
Rolison touted the nomination of Davis, a graduate of Long Island University, as a great thing for the city. “Jasmin has enthusiasm for being with people and she will be a perfect fit with the team. Most importantly for me, is how I know she will interface with the public – and that is the one place within city government that has continual contact with the public. Jasmin is a very friendly and accommodating person.”
Davis holds a degree in public relations with a minor in broadcast journalism from LIU and is enthusiastic about the new opportunity. “I’m very excited and honored to be a part of the great things happening with the revitalization of the city.”
