Concentrating in Family Law / Dissolution of Marriage Actions
Mayor Linda Hudson wants a growing,
business-friendly city that provides a good
place to live and work.
them and is trying to make sure they have what they need to
have a good life. And that I will help them do that within the
confines of our laws. I don’t want anyone to get special treatment,
but I don’t want anyone to get awful treatment either.”
She doesn’t see the future of Fort Pierce as being home to
many big-box stores. The reality is that the population and
the income among residents just isn’t there right now, she
says. “The average single person is making $17,000 and the
average family is making $42,000. We may not have many
big-box stores, but we do have a lot of small businesses and
I’d like to see them succeed.”
If bad things happen within city hall, or inside city boundaries,
she doesn’t want anyone to retreat to the “bunker mentality”
the city has become known for, she says. “I plan to be
open and accessible to the extent that I have the knowledge
about a situation,” she says. She used to teach people within
associations how to handle bad news, she says, so she feels
comfortable with the procedure.
The city’s form of government doesn’t give the mayor any
special powers, but she and the commission will be working
with the new city manager — whose job is to oversee the
staff, act as its liaison to the board and present the budget.
Like the mayor, he is a public face of the city and is often the
person residents and businesses expect to help them navigate
the sometimes murky waters of city government.
