SARATOGA - The mayor of Saratoga Springs is celebrating 100 days as city leader.

Democrat Joanne Yepsen spoke with NewsChannel 13 Friday morning about highlights of her time in the office so far.

The issue of casino expansion has dominated her tenure.

We wanted to know if there was anything that the casino can do to convince Yepsen to bring a resolution back to the council.

"It’s not convincing me, it's convincing the public. It's convincing the community. This community sentiment was expressed I feel very fairly and very openly."
