Sign a Petition - Get Democrats on the Ballot

On November 7, we will vote for city and county officials. But before we can vote for Democrats, we need to get them on ballot. That’s where you come in. To get on the ballot on the Democratic line (Row A), candidates need 5% of registered Democrats to sign a petition.
Volunteers and candidates will be canvassing Hudson over the next few weeks, supporting endorsed candidates of the Hudson City Democratic Committee and the Columbia County Democratic Committee. To arrange a time to get your signature, call or text Sarah Sterling at 917-699-5688. Or keep your eyes peeled over the weekends, when there are sure to be canvassers out!

Welcoming City Order

Police Commissioner Martha Harvey and Mayor Tiffany Martin-Hamilton issued an order prioritizing public safety over immigration enforcement. The order is largely a reiteration of the Resolution Affirming Hudson as a Welcoming and Inclusive City, which was passed with a 10-1 Common Council vote in March. After the resolution passed, the police commissioner must issue an Order to put the resolution into practice. The Order includes the introductory text of the Resolution and adds detailed procedures taken directly from the guidelines issued by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman earlier this year.

The Order ensures that people feel safe and included while living, working, and visiting the city of Hudson. The order aims to strengthen public safety by reassuring residents that they can report emergencies and crimes they are witness to or victim of, without fear of reprisal based on their real or perceived immigration status.
