Hudson enters Cranbrook council race

Cranbrook: Hudson, Anna - City Council Candidate. Hudson to run on platform of improving infrastructure and business.

The deadline for nominations for the municipal election passed on Friday, but there was one final entrant for city council.

Anna Hudson has entered the race with a platform that includes improving Cranbrook’s infrastructure, particularly roads, water and sewage systems, while building up the local economy.

“Overall, I’m interested in ensuring that Cranbrook city council does everything it can to ensure that Cranbrook remains one of the best places to live, work and raise our families,” wrote Hudson, in a press release.

Hudson is an educator, public administrator, facilitator and a legally trained researcher. She is also a spoken word performance artist, with a love of democratic theory and practice that is a longstanding personal and professional pursuit.

Her education background includes 18 years experience in teaching and researching in public administration, democracy and social movements and law and governance at different universities across North America, including University of the Arctic, University of Saskatchewan, University of Victoria, Malaspina University-College and Camosun College.

Additionally, Hudson has also been an instructor with the Aboriginal Leadership and Management program at the Banff Centre from 2003-2011.

Hudson is a mom, a dragon-boat racer and an avid cyclist currently working in a full-time administrative position with a local child and family non-profit organization.  She has also worked in the hospitality industry for the past year, which has enabled her to take the idea of servant-leadership to new levels.

“I do love good food, good customer service and community economic development. Working in the hospitality industry allows me to combine all three interests,” said Hudson.
