Mayor: Mandatory drug testing for city employees

Jun 18, 2014 5:02 am
John Mason is reporting in the Register Star Hudson Mayor William H. Hallenbeck Jr. has called on all appointed and elected city employees to join him in taking part in ongoing random drug testing. That testing is mandatory to some, but not all, city employees. Hallenbeck said Tues., June 17, “From the mayor on down, all employees should equally be held to the same standard.” Currently, city employees who are members of the CSEA and all employees holding commercial drivers licenses are subject to random drug testing. However, members of the Hudson City Police Officers Union and members of Common Council are not. Several aldermen and Common Council President Don Moore scoffed at the mayor's proposal. “I’m not going to be drug-tested,” Alderman John Friedman told the paper. “He’s not my father.” Read the full story in the Register Star.
