Last week Monday, Mayor Kamal Johnson announced that Michael Chameides was leaving his job as mayor's aide. His last day would be Friday, June 11. Yesterday, June 14, Chameides announced on social media that he had started his new job as Program and Communications Manager with Rural Democracy Initiative.
When he made the announcement, Johnson said he would selecting Chameides' replacement as mayor's aide "in the coming weeks." The rumor around town is that Michael Hofmann, who is challenging Heather Campbell to be city treasurer, is to be the new mayor's aide. If this is true, the mayor seems to be postponing announcing that appointment until after the primary on Tuesday, June 22, which will decide if Hofmann or Campbell will be the Democratic candidate for treasurer.
If you are a registered Democrat in Hudson and are unsure of the qualifications and goals of the two candidates vying to be city treasurer--Heather Campbell, our current city treasurer, and Michael Hofmann--an article comparing the two appeared in the Register-Star yesterday: "Campbell faces challenge from Hofmann in primary." It is recommended reading before casting your vote.
