Tray Herman: Representation Matters
With the Primary Election just around the corner, we wanted to reintroduce to you Tray Herman (he/him), advocate for renters, passionate about sustainability and Endorsed candidate for Media Borough Council.
The moment Tray became a resident of Media Borough in 2015 he knew he was home and he has been active in our community ever since. As the son of a teacher and a civil rights activist, growing up in Overbook and working throughout Delaware County and the Main Line, Tray has developed a unique outlook on life. Tray loves the walkability and peacefulness that Media offers and is looking to build on our excellent existing mass transit, including SEPTA’s Trolley Modernization Project that will be implemented over the next few years. He feels the strong call to serve his community and believes he can effectively utilize his skills and experience as a Media Borough Councilperson to support our residents, build on the town’s momentum and maintain it as a place others feel drawn to and can feel at home.
A graduate of Penn State Brandywine and Monsignor Bonner High School, Tray works in Information Technology Operations for a local manufacturing firm, overseeing the implementation and development of IT projects to aid in business needs. He is currently studying for his Master’s degree in Cybersecurity Policy and frequently mentors newcomers to IT and STEM. Active with the Media Democratic Committee since 2019, Tray has served as an At Large Committee person of the Media Democrats since 2020 and took on the role of co-Chair in 2021. When he is not a part-time caregiver to his parents, Tray spends his spare time playing the drums, working on 3D printing and modeling, off-roading and repairing Jeeps, watching documentaries and reading biographies.
Tray is the only renter running for Media Borough Council in this Democratic Primary. Election Day is May 16. Check out the rest of our website www.mediadems.com for more on our endorsed candidates, our sample ballot and other important voting information.
