One Person, One Vote: Hughes Prevails

Jeff Alexander reports in today's Register-Star that the Board of Supervisors Democratic caucus, voting one person, one vote, has elected Hudson Fourth Ward Supervisor Bill Hughes its minority leader: "Hughes will be BOS minority leader." Clermont Supervisor Ray Staats, who had been the minority leader, was less than gracious about the outcome, maintaining that the Hudson supervisors had "bullied the group and steamrolled the caucus.” The Hudson supervisors--Democrats all--are Sarah Sterling (First Ward), Ed Cross (Second Ward), Ellen Thurston (Third Ward), Bill Hughes (Fourth Ward), and Rick Scalera (Fifth Ward).
