Former Great Falls city commissioner Tracy Houck announced her resignation from the city commission via Facebook post on her Tracy Houck for Great Falls City Commission page posted November 4, at 1:11 PM.
Houck stated that her resignation would be effective November 5, 2021, giving the public, City administration, and her fellow commissioners less than 12 hours notice.
The remaining commissioners will have to appoint a new commissioner to fill Houck’s seat by December 6, 2021.
The announcement came one day after the final results from the November 2, Great Falls municipal election were released. Houck was not on the ballot and had 2 more years to serve in her second 4 year term.
Houck used her press release to describe her new job as a small business consultant, “As my commissioner role sunsets, I will be out and about visiting with businesses and local leaders in my new role. I have accepted a position with Northrup Grumman’s Space Command GBSD program as a Small Business Liason Officer. In this role, I will be able to continue to support the community, the businesses, and the people that make me so proud of Great Falls.”
And she ended with this:
“So allow me to reintroduce myself… My Name is Tracy (Houck) Jerman. You can reach me in a variety of ways… please reach out!”
