Mayor's Veto of Polling Place Change Draws Controversy

Poughkeepsie, NY – There is a debate in the City of Poughkeepsie over whether the mayor had the right to veto a resolution passed by the Common Council.

Tomorrow marks the final day for the council to override the mayor's veto, and there is uncertainty about what would happen next. More from WAMC's Hudson Valley Bureau Chief Allison Dunne.
