SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y >> Saratoga Springs Pub­lic Safety Com­mis­sioner-Elect Robin Dal­ton an­nounced that Eileen J. Fin­neran has been named Deputy Com­mis­sioner of Pub­lic Safety for the next Saratoga Springs City Coun­cil term — which will be­gin on New Year’s Day.

Fin­neran has served as Deputy Com­mis­sioner un­der two prior Com­mis­sion­ers, with Chris Mathiesen and Ron Kim, as well as serv­ing as deputy to Mayor Va­lerie Keehn. Her back­ground also in­cludes sig­nif­i­cant ex­pe­ri­ence with the Saratoga Springs’ Zon­ing Board of Ap­peals, the New York State Leg­is­la­ture,

lo­cal ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions, in ad­di­tion to ex­ten­sive vol­un­teer work.

“I am thrilled to re­turn to city govern­ment. It is an honor to help Com­mis­sioner Elect Dal­ton lead the De­part­ment of Pub­lic Safety,” Fin­neran added.

“I proudly ran, and won elec­tion, as a per­son who was an early adopter of the con­cept of ‘One Saratoga.’ This ap­point­ment ap­plies that con­cept,” Dal­ton stated. “Eileen brings some­thing unique to the ta­ble:Not just a wealth of ex­pe­ri­ence, but ex­pe­ri­ence spe­cific to the po­si­tion she will be as­sum­ing.”

“We have an am­bi­tious agenda in Pub­lic Safety, and in the City,” Dal­ton con­tin­ued, “and I want the best peo­ple on my team who will help to get us there. I’m de­lighted to ap­point

Eileen.”

“By ac­cept­ing this ap­point­ment, Eileen Fin­neran is reach­ing across party lines to­day as much as I am. We both do so in the be­lief that the City will be bet­ter as a re­sult. That, to me, is “One Saratoga.”
