More About Galvan Quarters
This morning on WGXC's @Issue, Victor Mendolia talked with Hudson supervisor Bill Hughes (Fourth Ward), who is a passionate supporter and defender of the plan to contract with the Galvan Initiatives Foundation to provide a homeless shelter in Hudson, and with Alderman John Friedman (Third Ward), a lawyer who has read the proposed lease agreements with Galvan three times and questions its wisdom. The lively discussion, which is recommended listening, can be heard here.
This blog takes its name from the 1850 novel by Hudson author Alice B. Neal. The original Gossips of Rivertown cast a gimlet eye on Hudson society in the mid-19th century. More than a century and a half later, the new Gossips carries on the spirit of the original, but in a different genre and with a different focus.
