Safety, Service & Community
As we arrive into the fall season and the new school year is well underway, I want to touch on a couple of different topics.
First and foremost, is a reminder to everyone that our children are our community’s most precious asset. With school in session, please continue to be mindful when driving to and from your career, when running out for errands or traveling in general. As I stated recently, Hudson has five different classroom buildings, and many of those are utilized for much more than educating our children. They are used for before- and after-care services, team practices, social meetings and events. The safety of our residents, community employees, guests and our children is a priority that we should all keep in focus and appreciate year-round.
On Sept. 10 and during the city open house event, I was honored to attend and cut the ribbon for the official dedication of our city hall building. Equally my honor was to welcome, meet and talk to those who took time out of their weekend to visit and learn more about the many services, resources and city contacts that are available and accessible to residents. If you were not able to attend, please look for the video tour, various pictures and copies of both the department overviews and GIS map of Hudson on the city’s website.
From a personal standpoint, I will soon be coming into six months served as your mayor. As with any new endeavor, I generally take some time initially to observe, absorb and learn. With that, I can honestly say that I am thrilled to be your mayor. I have enjoyed my role to date, and I hope that the community sees me as professional, vibrant and engaged. I also hope that I am seen as adding value to the process, discussions and activities that I have immersed myself into. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or inquiries.
With the fall season also comes the start of quarter #4 on our calendars and a host of events, activities and upcoming holidays. Fall has always been one of my favorite times of the year. I very much enjoy the changing of the leaves, because I think it is a truly beautiful expression of nature. I am looking forward to enjoying all that the fall season has to offer in our amazing city. To that, I would like to wish all of Hudson a safe, peaceful and rewarding fall 2022.
Quotes of the month: Early on in my professional career, two pieces of advice have resonated with me and have helped shape my character. The first, “Everyone makes mistakes, but it is how you respond and handle the situation that matters most;” the second, “It is OK to disagree when discussing an issue or challenging topic, just be sure to also engage and come to the table with some ideas for a solution.” Thank you, Jeff O. and Keith H.
Thank you, Hudson! ∞
