Local elections happen this November--just a little more than six months away. All city offices--mayor, treasurer, Common Council president, aldermen (ten), and supervisors (five)--are up for a vote. This year, to make it even more interesting, the aldermen and supervisors will be elected from the newly drawn wards of equal population, adopted by referendum last November, which, in some instances, makes incumbency less of a guarantee of reelection.
To encourage and inform those interested in running for office and serving their fellow Hudsonians as elected officials, the Hudson City Democratic Committee (HCDC) is holding an informational event on Thursday, April 13, from 5 to 7 p.m. You don't need to be a registered Democrat to attend.
Three members of the HCDC (two of whom are also elected officials)--Bill Hughes, Fourth Ward supervisor; Sarah Sterling, First Ward supervisor; Justin Goldman--will participate in a Q&A session moderated by a fourth HCDC member, Verity Smith.
The event takes place at the Hudson Area Library, 51 North Fifth Street, in the Teen Room at the back of the library.
