In the Fishbowl

The Hudson Development Corporation Board of Directors was scheduled to meet Tuesday, October 23, at 6:00 p.m. The meeting was to take place not at 11 North Front Street, the board's usual meeting place, or in the Community Room of the Hudson Area Library, a favorite fallback, because neither space was available at that time, but in the senior center on the second floor of the Galvan Armory. Yesterday, it announced that the meeting had been canceled.

This morning, Charlie Suisman, one of HDC's staunchest critics, shared this image with various groups on Facebook, accompanied by a request for HDC explain why the meeting was canceled.

Gossips has learned the reason for the cancellation, and it seems pretty innocuous. It was determined there was insufficient business to require a meeting, and key board members would be away and unable to attend.

    If there is insufficient business for HDC to have a meeting, there is insufficient reason to have an HDC. Especially since we're in such a... development slump. Putting aside lack of transparency and accountability, every week HDC makes the argument for its own irrelevance and obsolescence.
