sorry to hear that Rep. Bill Hudson has decided to retire. I can understand his decision after such a trying year. We all owe Bill a vote of thanks and much more for all the hard work he contributed to solve the budget gap. The ironic part is that he in fact did solve the budget gap, but the Senate did not support him. Just want to say that thanks, Bill, for all of your hard work. If you should change your mind, which I hope you will, I will support your re-election in any way that I can.
