Michelle Osterhoudt

ONEONTA – Council member Michelle Osterhoudt, Fourth Ward, has announced she’s leaving Common Council Nov. 30, a month before her term expires, citing family obligations.

She didn’t run for a second term, and will be succeeded by fellow Democrat Kaytee Lipari Shue on Jan. 1.

“While I have enjoyed my position and truly love Oneonta and the Fourth Ward, it is clear that my obligations to my job and family have been in conflict with my position on Council,” she wrote in a statement. “I have decided to share this decision with the media first – so that the message comes from me.”
