Although city voters kept Mayor Kathy Sheehan for a second term in November, Albany is losing a city hall fixture in the new year. Carolyn McLaughlin was elected to the Albany Common Council in 1997, representing the Second Ward. The Democrat most recently served as Common Council President, a city-wide office, capping a public service career that spans two decades. McLaughlin, who ran unsuccessfully for mayor, is being succeeded by Common Council President-elect Corey Ellis. McLaughlin sat down this week with WAMC’s Capital Region Bureau Chief Dave Lucas.

The conversation continues. McLaughlin shares her views on the Dontay Ivy incident, critiques her mayoral campaign and looks ahead to her future.
