Wallace and four other candidates for the seat made their appeals for support during a special meeting of the Hudson Common Council. The council members unanimously chose Wallace over former 2nd Ward representative Tiffany Garriga and 1st Ward representative Jane Trombley, Hudson Housing Authority Treasurer and former alderperson Rebecca Wolff, as well as attorney Julie Goldweitz. The IDA assists in the acquisition, construction, improvement and maintenance of Hudson’s industrial, commercial, renewable energy and recreational facilities. The first vote taken by the council was split four ways, but the second was unanimous for Wallace. Wallace currently serves as IDA Secretary. Goldweitz was the only candidate to not receive a vote, but Wallace encouraged her input and expertise at future IDA meetings. Read the full story at HudsonValley360 [dot] com.
