As an Albertville resident stepping into the voting booth on Tuesday, November 4th, you will note instructions on the ballot to vote for “up to two” candidates for city council. As it turns out, there will be only one name printed on the ballot. I am asking voters to consider writing in my name, Walter Hudson, as the second candidate for city council.
Living near Winter Park with my wife and two young sons, ages 5 and 1, I care about maintaining the quality of life which attracts young families to Albertville. Our growing community needs to scale essential services like law enforcement, fire protection, and public works to accommodate developing needs. We must do so without increasing the levy burden upon property owners.
Much of the policy which affects municipalities is drafted by the state legislature. When facing issues like the unequal funding of the St. Michael – Albertville school district, local officials operate at the mercy of state lawmakers. Over the past few years, I have developed strong relationships with many of our state leaders and would be well equipped to advocate for our community as a council member.
Albertville residents will see me canvassing their neighborhood between now and Election Day, but need not wait to learn more about my candidacy. Visit votewalterhudson.com for campaign and contact information.
