We believe that our 2013 team reflects the wonderful diversity which makes Hudson so great. We have put forward a slate of candidates who bring a wide range of experience and knowledge to the table. All with a desire to cooperate and work together as a team to solve the problems we face. Coming up with new and innovative ideas to help lead the city in more sustainable ways. While at the same time finding new ways to make certain that while Hudson advances economically and socially, that we do so together as one community, with no one left out.

We look forward to meeting the voters between now and Election Day. If you would like arrange an opportunity to meet any of our candidates, feel free to contact the Committee.

See the links on the sidebar for individual biographies of our candidates.

We use the traditional term "Aldermen" here. But we are extremely excited that five of our ten candidates for the Common Council, assuming they win, will serve as "Alderwomen".
