The Race is On: Hudson Political Party

Some were politically motivated, others turned up just to see how co-host, artist/designer Frank Faulkner‘s latest adventure in Hudson real estate is coming along.  Everyone left dazzled, both by the house, barely furnished until the old one sells, and by Ken Dow (inset), candidate for the State Senate seat currently held by Republican Steve Saland.  If Dow wins, he’ll be the first Democrat to represent Columbia and Dutchess Counties since FDR, who, as a political neophyte, won the seat in 1910.  Assuming all incumbent Democrats get re-elected, a Dow victory would mean the State Senate, traditionally a bastion of Republican control, will have a 50/50 split.
