The Political Scene

As a Hudson resident and a registered Democrat, I attended the monthly meeting of the Hudson City Democratic Committee last night and was present when Victor Mendolia announced his resignation as chair of the HCDC. 

Mendolia, who was involved in ACT UP in New York City, explained that he was stepping down because he wanted to play a more active role in AIDS advocacy at the state level but assured the committee that he would continue to be involved in Hudson politics and to work for Democratic candidates in the November election. Mendolia will stay on as vice chair of the HCDC. 

Also at last night's meeting, the HCDC unanimously passed a resolution supporting the anti-fracking law that is in the process of being passed in the City of Hudson and urging Columbia County to enact similar legislation. The text of the resolution can be found on the HCDC website.
