Letter: Notes two correctionsThe March 5 edition of the Star-Observer contained errors concerning contract details for the town of Hudson assistant animal control warden.

The March 5 edition of the Star-Observer contained errors concerning contract details for the town of Hudson assistant animal control warden. The first error was in the article written by Jon Echternacht, “Contest set for town chair.”
It stated that the animal warden gets 30 days of vacation. I am that person and my contract does not indicate that I get any vacation whatsoever. I called and spoke with Mr. Echternacht (Star-Observer reporter) who again reviewed the wording in my contract and agreed to print a correction (in this week’s Star-Observer).
The second error was contained in a letter to the editor written by town supervisor candidate Todd Mullinax. In his letter he stated that I make over $40 per hour as an assistant animal warden.
This statement is totally false. I also spoke with Mr. Mullinax after I was able to locate his unlisted phone number. He informed me the information was supplied to him by someone else and now realized that it was in error. He also said he would seek a printed correction.
Being a 30-plus-year town of Hudson resident and taxpayer, I urge continued support for Jeff Johnson as town chairman plus Tim Foster and Kernon Bast for the supervisor positions. These three individuals have many years of honest, dedicated service to the residents of the town of Hudson. Jeff has over 19 years, Tim with over 29 years and Kernon is a former two-term supervisor. However you choose to vote, please do vote on April 7.
