Hudson City Court has two judges. One is elected; one is appointed by the mayor of Hudson. Both serve six-year terms. Jack Connor, who was city attorney during Rick Scalera's many terms as mayor, has held the elected position since 2012. The other position is held by Brian Herman, who was appointed in 2016 by Mayor Tiffany Martin. Herman's term ends later this month, and Gossips has learned that he will not be reappointed. The word is that Mayor Kamal Johnson intends to appoint Cheryl Roberts, current city attorney, to the position of city judge. Roberts is the executive director of the Greenburger Center for Social and Criminal Justice and is the facilitator of the Joint City/County Task Force "to close gaps in mental health and substance use disorder services."
