Mayoral candidate responds to Phase II vote

HUDSON (May 8, 2019) -- Mayoral candidate Craig Shubert released this statement following the outcome of the advisory vote on the Downtown Redevelopment Phase II project:

"I am glad the people of Hudson were given the chance to speak on this issue. More work will need to be done to address many of the concerns raised by citizens during the campaign. But this was an important opportunity for the city to weigh in.

"I sincerely hope our elected officials will pause Phase II to address these issues because immediately moving forward with the project after a 'No' vote will likely further increase the animosity in our community."
