Hudson changing course with new administration
The town of Hudson, which has been under much scrutiny of late amid allegations of wrongdoing, fraud and more, will head toward a new future with a new mayor and council that only includes one returning councillor.
Ed Prévost was elected mayor Nov. 3 with 75.73 % of votes (1,448) after beating challenger Jacques Bourgeois, who received 24.27 % of votes (464.)
A total of 1,912 of Hudson’s 4,121 eligible electorate turned out for Sunday’s municipal election.
Dist. 1 councillor Robert Spencer is the town’s only returning municipal councillor, though he won the seat by a narrow margin, beating Peter Robinson by 142 votes to Robinson’s 113 votes. Elaine Depow also ran in the district and garnered 54 votes.
Ron Goldenberg was elected in Dist. 2 with 193 votes (62.87 %,) while Nicole Durand won a seat in Hudson’s Dist. 3 with 130 votes, which represented 43.62 % of the vote.
Barbara Robinson will serve in Dist. 4 after winning with 195 votes, while Deborah Woodhead was elected in Dist. 5 with 250 votes. Rounding out Hudson’s new town council will be Natalie Best, who was elected in Dist. 6 with 248 votes.
