A Message from Councilman Tracy Hermann

J Tracy HermannI am honored to serve as the 8th Ward Councilman for the City of Poughkeepsie.

When my family and I moved to Poughkeepsie several years ago, we were attracted by a city brimming with possibility—one rich in history and diversity, and ripe with potential. In my year-and-a-half of serving as your Council representative, I’ve been given the wonderful opportunity to get an inside look at Poughkeepsie’s unique challenges and opportunities. Poughkeepsie has many assets and resources, including our majestic Hudson river, the Walkway and our City waterfront, anchor institutions like Vassar, Marist and Dutchess Community College, and the greatest resource of all—the people who call Poughkeepsie home. These assets and resources are poised to position Poughkeepsie, like our neighbors Beacon, to the South, and Hudson, to the north, as the next great Hudson River renaissance city, with all the benefits that come along with that distinction (jobs, economic growth, and quality of life).

Read more about my vision for Poughkeepsie, and please be sure to sign up for our Ward 8 newsletter (at right), so that we can keep you abreast of all that’s going on in this great City (and neighborhood) of ours!

Thank you for this opportunity to serve as your Councilman!

Yours in Service,
Tracy Hermann
