To the editor:

Re: Amanda Purcell’s front page story (Nov 26) “Hudson Seeks New Assessor,” it is noted that “the assessor is appointed by the mayor. Let’s hope that outgoing mayor Rick Rector has the decency to allow our new Mayor, Kamal Johnson, to be sworn in Jan. 1, to make this appointment. In case anyone has forgotten, Rector not only presided over the largest property assessment increase in Hudson history, vetoing two attempts by the Common Council to fix it, but he was summarily defeated in the Democratic primary and general election because of it.

To allow Rector to appoint a new assessor as he’s leaving office is allowing him to rub salt in the City wounds he inflicted.
