This morning, Nick Haddad, alderman from the First Ward, spoke with Tom Roe on WGXC and shared his thoughts about the Hudson City Democratic Committee, the body that chose to make endorsements in the races for mayor and Common Council president instead of allowing the Democrats of Hudson to choose, in a primary, the candidates they want to to represent them in November. Haddad was one of the people seeking to be the Democrats' candidate for mayor. At the end of the conversation, which can be heard here, Haddad said of his political future, "You may still see me somewhere." Within hours of that broadcast, Haddad informed Gossips of his intention to retain the Council seat he now holds, challenging the two candidates, Rick Rector and Michael O'Hara, who have been endorsed by the HCDC. "There is far too much work to complete," Haddad told Gossips, "and the thought of it going south is unbearable."
