The Hudson City Democratic Committee is proud to announce the 2nd annual Ellen Awards, a cocktail fundraiser to be held Thursday, September 21, 6 to 8pm at Hudson Hall (327 Warren Street). All proceeds will go to local Democratic candidates running in this year’s elections.
First held in 2016 to honor Ellen Thurston for her service as Third Ward alderman and supervisor, the Ellens are awarded to a local Democrat each year, to honor longstanding service to our community. This year’s honoree is the Reverend Ed Cross, who is in his 20th year as Columbia County Supervisor representing Hudson’s Second Ward. Prior to that, he served as Alderman for the same district in the City’s Common Council.
"Ed has worked selflessly for decades for the people of Hudson, and is retiring from office this year. We are proud to honor him," said Kevin Hannan, Committee Vice-Chair.
Come raise a glass to Ed Cross, and raise funds for our local Democratic candidates. Tickets are $25 apiece and are available at https://secure.actblue.com/contribute/page/ellens2017.
