Poughkeepsie is more than a city; more than a point on a map or a stop on the train. It’s our home. It’s where we work; where we play; where we learn and worship and love.

J Tracy HermannAnd although there are challenges we face, we face them together. We work through our issues as one Poughkeepsie and emerge better than ever.


I entered city government to do my part to help my friends and neighbors and to leave a better city for our children. With your help, I’d like to continue on this journey. I’m Tracy Hermann and I’m running to be your City Councilmen.

The Common Council was recently advised to revisit the current parking ordinance/regulations along Wilbur, which allow for alternate-street parking along some sections of the Boulevard. The City’s DPW and Engineering Departments, and by the PoliceDepartment’s traffic division, have re-assessed the area and have determined that due to the current volume of traffic, coupled with the narrowness of the street, on-street parking is hazardous and ill advised. As such, the Council is moving to eliminate on-street parking along all sections of Wilbur. Once adopted, parking will no longer be allowed on the street, nor on the tree strip separating the street from the sidewalk.
