Poughkeepsie Council to name late councilman’s husband as his replacement


POUGHKLEEPSIE – The Poughkeepsie Common Council will name the late
Tracy Hermann’s husband, Matthew McNamara , as his replacement as
councilman for the 8th Ward.

Hermann died unexpectedly of a heart attack on March 3. Within days of
his passing, city officials had mentioned that his husband would be the
perfect choice to carry on his legacy.

Matthew will serve from Monday, March 21 when he is named, through the
end of the year. A special election will be held in November to elect
a replacement for the remainder of the term.
