After two stints as mayor of Warrior (1984-2000 and 2000-now) Hudson has noted that the city has changed over the years. One change, she said, is that revenue has increased in the last year and a half.
“It’ll grow,” Hudson said on where she sees Warrior in the future. “It’s my understanding from talking with some of those that are running for the office that the downtown revitalization will be a top priority. And it’s going to take a lot of work, but it can be done because the city of Warrior has a lot to offer, even though we’re a small municipality.”
As a regional library, Hudson said that it should draw people from all around the north Jefferson area. In addition to a larger selection of books, more computers will be available in the new building.
One of the accomplishments of the city is its fire department, which has an ISO (Insurance Service Organization) rating of two. The lower the ISO rating, the lower residents pay for homeowners insurance. Hudson said it is one of the very few stations in the state with such a rating. The fire station is made up of both volunteers and those who are part-time paid. It is led by Clay Neely.
