Jammel Cutler reports in Columbia-Greene Media that Kevron Trone Lee is running in Hudson's 2nd Ward as a Democrat this year. He is talking about police reform and affordable housing. Lee said, “Minorities are getting pushed out and it’s very important to keep native Hudson residents here, people that have been here all their lives, instead of them getting pushed out of their homes. Housing, along with gentrification, is very important in Hudson. Landlords come in and make the rent over $2,500, and if you add in an electric bill that’s another $500. How can someone afford that?” Lee is being backed by the HCHC Collective, part of the Hudson-Catskill Housing Coalition. Read more about this story at HudsonValley360.com.
