The first to make public his intention to run for office this time around is Rob Bujan, who is seeking to represent the greatly expanded geographically First Ward as an alderman. Bujan, a Democrat who lives in the original First Ward and currently serves on the Planning Board, announced his candidacy with this statement:
I am looking forward to running for 1st Ward Alderman. I believe transparency and collaboration to be an essential part of any government. We don't have to always agree but we should really agree that each person's passion has a reason behind it and that that passion is important to them. Treating others with respect, regardless of one's view is so important when working with a team, in this case, the Common Council.
Now is the time for the City of Hudson and its government to continue to work to push for progress, equality, responsibility and respect.You can hear Bujan, who writes the blog Pulling the Plug on Healthcare, talking about healthcare and related issues today at 2 p.m. on WGXC. Bujan's campaign website is bujanforfirst.com.
