The public affairs firm Mercury has hired former Cuomo policy advisor Alexandra Greene and ex-Saratoga Springs Mayor Joanne Yepsen.

Yepesen, a Democrat, will be a senior vice president after serving two terms as mayor of Saratoga Springs. Greene will be a vice president at Mercury after working four years in the Cuomo administration.

“Mayor Yespen proved in office that she gets things done, and will bring that same energy and determination to Mercury,” said Mercury Partner Michael McKeon.

“Alexandra Greene has a deep understanding of economic development issues, with unique insights into the Governor’s signature commitment to bringing real power to the State’s MWBE program. Together, they bring a wealth of experience in policy and the inner workings of government at every level, as well as invaluable relationships across the State.”
