Jan Doonan says good-bye to City Hall


Jan Doonan enjoyed her job.

She liked it well enough that when she reached the age that qualified her for full Social Security benefits, she kept going.

But now, after 24-plus years as executive secretary for the city of Hudson, Doonan is calling it quits.

“It’s time,” she said.

The job is getting in the way of her life.
