Saratoga Springs Public Safety Commissioner-Elect Robin Dalton Appoints Eileen J. Finneran as Deputy Commissioner
SARATOGA SPRINGS, NEW YORK (December 23, 2019) – Saratoga Springs Public Safety Commissioner-Elect Robin Dalton announced today 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, January 1, 2020.
“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,” Commissioner- Elect Dalton stated. “Eileen brings something unique to the table: Not just a wealth of experience, but specific experience with the position she will be assuming.”
Ms. Finneran has served as Deputy Commissioner under two previous Commissioners of Public Safety (Chris Mathiesen and Ron Kim,) as well 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.
“We have an ambitious agenda in Public Safety, and in the City,” Commissioner- Elect 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.” Commissioner-Elect Dalton concluded. “Thank you, Eileen, for agreeing to continue to serve our City.”
