Please tell the readers about yourself; your background, history, experience, etc:
My wife, Elizabeth Moore, and I have lived full-time in the First Ward for almost 10 years. We chose Hudson because of the community we found here. I am a father, grandfather, senior citizen, full-time GM for a local wedding venue, a US Army veteran, and a youth sports coach for 11 years.
For over 40 years, I got things done in business. My focus was applying technology to improve existing services or create new services, and I became very good at working through resistance to change. I plan on relying on that experience representing you on the Common Council.
I am a registered Democrat, and I fully embrace and am committed to the vision statement of the Hudson’s Democratic Party, promoting progress for all.
Why are you running for the City of Hudson Councilmember position?
Hudson is my chosen home; I love all that is Hudson. We live in a unique city. One worth working to maintain what we have that is right and making changes required to ensure that we promote progress for all.
When I look at the City’s government, I know we can do better. And we have. Indeed, Margaret Morris has represented us in the First Ward well these past 2 years. And there are fresh faces in the other wards, who I believe will help make a difference. I would like to help contribute to a more effective and responsive Common Council representing you.
What would you like to accomplish within your two years of office?
Deliver on my commitments
- Representing you means showing up. Not just attending Common Council meetings but meetings that have a significant bearing on our Ward and City.
- Representing you means putting the work in. Being prepared for meetings, legislating, and understanding how matters before the Council affect you and those in our community most vulnerable.
- Communicate with you. I want to establish an easy means for us to communicate. And as a constituent of the First Ward, I would like for my representative to keep me abreast of what’s going on. I commit to doing that. Is a monthly report the proper time interval?
