Anyone who has visited the Council Chamber in City Hall knows that its walls are lined with portraits of Hudson's mayors--from Seth Jenkins (1785-1793) to William H. Hallenbeck, Jr. (2012-2015). Missing are our most recent former mayor, Tiffany Martin Hamilton (2016-2017), and our current mayor, Rick Rector.
On the mantelpiece in the room are displayed pictures of our representatives to the state and federal legislative bodies: Didi Barrett, NYS State Assembly; Kathy Marchione, NYS State Senate; John Faso, US House of Representatives; Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gilliband, US Senate. Earlier this week, a new picture appeared at the center of the gallery, with Barrett, Schumer, and Gillibrand (Democrats) arrayed at the left, and Faso and Marchione (Republicans) at the right.
Yup, that's a cropped copy of the official portrait.
