News from the Campaigns
Glenn Martin, the former Hudson police chief who resigned in disgrace in September 2000, is playing the favorite Hudson political game of trying to get his name on as many ballot lines as possible in his run for Third Ward supervisor. Endorsed by the Republicans, he's primarying Ellen Thurston on September 13 for the Democratic line, but his attempt to secure the Independence Party line was thwarted this week when it was determined that one of the three signatures on his Independence Party designating petition (apparently only three were needed) was a forgery. Not only did the signature on the petition not match the signature on the person's voter registration card, but the last name of the alleged signee was missing a letter, and the first name was similar but distinctly different from his actual first name. Ooops.
