Three mayors on a "new era in city government" at Albany Law

kathy sheehan lovely warren joanne yepsenThe new mayors of Albany, Saratoga Springs, and Rochester will be at Albany Law February 19 for an event titled "Leading a New Era in City Government: Women Mayors of Upstate New York." Even blurbage:

Come listen to Kathy Sheehan '94, Albany, Lovely Warren '03, Rochester, and Joanne Yepsen, Saratoga Springs, all newly elected mayors of cities in Upstate New York, discuss their own journey to elected leadership seats, their personal insights on the equitable participation of women in politics and government, and the unique responsibility of running a city government.

You already know a bit about Sheehan and Yepsen, but maybe not Lovely Warren. She's an interesting story -- her victory in the Rochester mayoral election was considered a big upset. And she's just 36 years old (and got a law degree from Albany Law in 2003). Her term has gotten off to a bit of a rough start.

The Albany Law event is at 4 pm on February 19 (a Wednesday), and there's a reception afterward. It's free and open to the public, but if you'd like to attend the reception, registration is required (details at the link).

Albany Law advertises on AOA.
