Hanse is seeking his fourth term, and Sutton his first.

Joe Gentile reported in the Register Star the Hudson Common Council has decided to rebid the city's Senior Center project, after the project budget skyrocketed. Architect Jane Smith and Engineer David Crawford appeared before the Council last week with a cost estimate summary proposing a redesigned project. The redesign is expected to lower the projected cost from $1.4 million to $1.1 million. In October, the city allocated less than $800,000 to fund the addition onto Hudson's Youth Center.

Nathan Mayberg reported in the Register Star the Columbia County Board of Supervisors is considering funding a re-entry program to help parolees. The action would be taken in an attempt to help reduce the county’s recidivism rate and lessen the demand on the county’s public agencies. Lynn Rothenberg and Carolyn Polikarpus of the newly formed Re-Entry Task Force of Columbia County Inc., met with the Human Services Committee of the Columbia Columbia County Board of Supervisors last week and presented their plans. Supervisors could approve $25,000 in funding for the new program as seed money for a trial program as early as next month. Read the full story in the Register Star.
