Local Election Success

As we take in the reality of a new Trump presidency amidst a Republican controlled Congress, it is important to celebrate a few, local bright spots from this Election.


  • Two local Propositions endorsed by the Hudson Democrats passed by wide margins:
    • Prop 1 gave all residents fair and equal representation in our city government. 
    • Prop 2 showed our city’s commitment to our volunteer firefighters by allowing them to accrue a modest retirement benefit.
  • Hudson voters had a strong showing for Didi Barrett and helped secure her reelection to the New York State Assembly. With 81% of the vote, Didi received significantly more votes in Hudson than she did 2 years ago. Once absentees are counted, her lead is sure to increase.
  • Hudson voters had a strong showing for Hillary Clinton (and the rest of the Democrat line). In Hudson, Hillary Clinton got 72% vs Trump’s 22%. Once absentee ballots are counted, it is likely that Hillary will have garnered more Hudson votes than Obama did in 2012.

Support the 2016 Election Efforts

With one month to go until Nov. 8, it’s important to remember how the national spectacle that is the Trump campaign came to be. The hate-full Trump candidacy and the toxic political environment are direct products of decades of right-wing organizing. Ultra-conservatives increasingly ran for, and won, local office and school board seats. They went on to the state level and redrew congressional districts. Then they won a majority of Congress where they refuse to legislate, in favor of pure obstructionism.

Support For Immigrant Access to Driver's Licenses





Hudson Democrats and Hudson City Council Pass Resolution in Support of Changing State Law

In March 2016, leaders of the Columbia County Democratic Party met with a group of Hispanics who want to get more involved with the Democratic Party. At the meeting, they discussed the challenges for immigrants to obtain a driver’s license and how that contributes to a general sentiment that Hispanics live in the shadows.

Democrats on the Ballot


UPDATE: Didi Barrett and Shaun Francis are on the ballot. Hudson Democrats gathered signatures from 200 people to support the effort.

--

On November 8, we will vote for State Assembly and State Senate (along with President, Senator, Congressmember, judges, and ballot initiatives). But before we can vote for Democrats for the State Legislature, we need to get them on ballot. That’s where you come in. To get on the ballot as a Democrat, candidates need 5% of registered Democrats to sign a petition. To be on the safe side, candidates typically seek to double or triple that number.

Hudson Democrats are supporting the process and gathering petition signatures for Didi Barrett for Assembly and Shaun Francis for Senate.
