The New Mayor and the Commissioners

The positions of commissioners in Hudson--there are five, with varying levels of visibility and de facto responsibility: Police, Fire, Public Works, Youth, and Aging--are mayoral appointees who receive an annual stipend of $1,000. It is reported today in the Register-Star that mayor elect Tiffany Martin Hamilton has made a decision about one of the commissioners, asking Gary Graziano, who has served as police commissioner for the past four years, to continue in that position: "Police commissioner asked to stay."

  1. I, for one, applaud this decision. Give the proponents of the HPD's long overdue transformation more time.

  2. I must say that for the City of Hudson to pay Commissioners only $1,000 per year is quite a bargain for taxpayers.
    Maybe a raise in salary is order.

    1. Until recently, they were not compensated at all.
