Albany Common Council Member Gets Heat After Facebook Post

Judy Doesschate

A social media backlash against a member of Albany Common Council. 

Judy Doesschate snapped three shots of a Mohawk Ambulance double parked outside a Stewart's along New Scotland Avenue, and asked her Facebook friends what they thought. 

They told her. 

Almost everyone wrote in support of the EMT's and expressed anger at Doesschate for her post. 

Dan Schuttig with the United Public Service Employee Union says these guys had to be ready to move on a moment's notice.

Doesschate says she wasn't trying to shame anyone, but wanted to shed light on a dangerous situation...double-parking...that's sometimes common in the city.

Doesschate took the post down after about ten hours.
