Last week, the Police Commissioner and Mayor signed an order prioritizing public safety over immigration enforcement. It’s a huge step, supporting our immigrant communities and Hudson’s diversity. Looking ahead to 2018, the Hudson City Democratic Committee has endorsed 12 candidates who have committed to work toward a more inclusive city that meets the needs of all its residents. These candidates have identified economic development, affordable housing, and the waterfront as important issues for the next term. You can meet the candidates at the Ellens on June 8 where we will honor Reverend Ed Cross.

Please join us for the 2017 Ellen Awards, our annual fundraiser honoring local Democrats with distinguished records of service. This year, we celebrate the many years of service of Reverend Ed Cross, former Alderman and Supervisor.
The Hudson City Democratic Committee has, to date, endorsed a dozen local candidates whose goals align with the committee’s vision of "Progress for All." The candidates have committed to work toward a more inclusive city that meets the needs of all its residents. In quite a few instances, there were so many more strong candidates than there are open seats that the committee felt it best not to endorse any at all, which is to say that members found the candidates equally attractive.
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 helps to ensure 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.
