Of Interest . . .
but probably only to those who've been knocking around Hudson politics for a while. John Porreca, who sold his house on Union Street and moved to Greenport several months ago, is challenging Ed Nabozny for the position of Greenport supervisor. Porreca, who is a Republican, served as alderman from the Third Ward back in the early years of the new millenium (or maybe it was the late 1990s) and ran for Common Council president in 2009. Running against Don Moore, who had lived in Hudson for only three years at that point, Porreca made much of being the "hometown boy" and boasted in the press that he'd known Rick Scalera since they were kids, and they could "get things done together." Porreca lost to Moore in that race, receiving, as reported on election night, 504 votes to Moore's 581.
