Hudson Common Council loses new member

Mar 13, 2012 3:49 pm
John Mason writes in the Register Star Alderman Larissa Parks, D-Hudson1, has resigned. Parks notified city officials of her decision by email Mon., Mar. 12, after serving the residents of Hudson's First Ward slightly more than two months. Parks was elected in Nov. 2011, and took the seat in January. Common Council President Don Moore announced the resignation at the informal meeting of the full council, Monday. The council must now appoint an interim replacement "in not less than 10 and not more than 20 days" to serve out the year, Mason writes. An election will be held in November to select an individual to complete the remainder of Parks' two-year term. The council will meet 7 p.m., Thurs., Mar. 22 to "entertain expressions of interest in the position," Moore said. Two candidates have come forward -- former First Ward Alderman Geeta Cheddie and former mayoral candidate Nick Haddad. If the council fails to agree on a candidate within 20 days, the task of filling the seat falls to Mayor William Hallenbeck. Read the full story in the Register Star.
