Never mind that he pulled in just 29 percent of the vote in the three-way Chief Magistrate race last fall, Chris Hudson gets a robe anyway.
Hudson, who ran on tougher sentencing for repeat offenders, was sworn in last week as an associate magistrate judge along with the venerable Bobby Christine, whose deployment during the election cycle caused the vacancy in the first place.
Delayed a bit by Hurricane Sandy, Christine returned mid-November, just in time to sling the antipasto salad and chicken parmesan at the annual Italian Thanksgiving feast. While not exactly picking up where he left off, Columbia County’s Golden Boy is nevertheless back in the political thick of things.
Jason Troiano beat both Hudson and Jason Hasty to take the Chief Magistrate spot with a surprising 54 percent of the vote back in July. You Might Also Like:
