Hudson voters approve senior center, reject union contracts

603-557-8602

HUDSON|--Voters rejected several union contracts Tuesday but approved a $1.8 million bond for the construction of a new senior center and cable television studio at Benson Park.

Article 12, the dual-purpose cable and senior center facility, passed with 1,766 votes, with 1,418 opposed.

Voters rejected collective-bargaining agreements with the town's highway workers, support staff, teachers, department supervisors, firefighters and police officers, along with separate articles asking for wage and benefit increases for the town's non-union personnel and the town clerk.

Also rejected was a $250,000 feasibility study to determine future needs of the local school district.

Roger Coutu and Richard Maddox were elected to the town's two open selectmen seats, both three-year terms.

Michael Truesdell and Patty Langlais won the two open school board seats, also three-year terms.

Lines were virtually nonexistent at the polls at midday on Tuesday, with about 1,240 votes cast by noontime. A total of 3,233 residents participated in the election.
