A Note from Kamal:

Like many of you, I’m concerned about the mismanagement of this entire assessment process, and its impact on residents throughout the City of Hudson. I understand that people are not only frustrated about their assessments, but about not being heard. We need leadership in Hudson that will listen to the concerns of all its residents, and represent them with fairness and transparency.
