A change in residency could affect March election
Dave Merandy and Stephanie Hawkins were married on Saturday, Oct. 4, in a ceremony held at The University Settlement Camp in Beacon. A reception followed at the same location. Merandy is a member of the Philipstown Town Board and Hawkins serves as a trustee on the Cold Spring Village Board.
Should the couple decide to live outside the village, Hawkins would not be eligible to run for re-election in March. When asked about residency by Philipstown.info, the couple issued a joint statement: “As you can imagine we’re very happy! We’ve been a bit busy planning a wedding, doing our day jobs, and fulfilling our obligations as public servants. We haven’t really focused on next March yet, and until we do, we are keeping both our homes.”
