Hawkins and Merandy

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.”

  1. What a great picture! I have been following local news from afar, and it looks like all troubles were left behind on this special day. Congratulations!

  2. Now that is one household that will be truly represented, both Town and Village. Regardless of whether you agree with their decisions or not you have to truly respect and admire their personal (now family) sacrifices to serve the people of this great town. All the best to you both.
