While last week’s election still is pending, the Hardin County Clerk’s office has accepted its first candidacy paperwork for the 2020 May primary.
Selena Hudson, former president of the Radcliff Small Business Alliance, filed Tuesday for Vine Grove City Council.
All local council and city commission seats have two-year terms. In Vine Grove and Radcliff, which conduct primaries if more than 12 people file for the six available seats, the filing deadline is Jan. 28, according to County Clerk Debbie Donnelly.
In a news release, Hudson said she values communications and “multiple points of view to promote positive community engagement.”
She praised Vine Grove for its fiscal responsibility, thoughtful development and safe, open neighborhoods. Hudson, 46, said she plans to encourage strategic planning and creativity to meet the city’s challenges.
A Hardin County native, Hudson and her husband, a military retiree, are parents of six and have four grandchildren. A mortgage officer, she also is an entrepreneur. The Hudsons are co-owners of local Vine Grove business, Riches and Glory Photography.
In addition to all local council races, next year’s ballots includes some school board seats, all U.S. representative and state House races, half of the state Senate and U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell’s seat is up.
