Linda is a dedicated and long time resident of the 8th Ward.  She is a founding member and current President of the Eighth Ward Accountability Coalition (“EWAC”), a community-based organization whose mission is to ensure that local public officials are accountable and make decisions based solely on their constituents’ best interests.

In 2015 she led EWAC in galvanizing community support to stop the placement of a medical marijuana dispensary next to a clinic for youth in crisis in the 8th Ward. This forced the current alderman to withdraw her support and stopped the opening of the dispensary. 

Her ability to organize and rally Ward residents led to the closing of the Recovery Café, a methadone clinic that opened in the heart of the East 87th Street Business District without public input. While the clinic was open, criminal activity surged in the area, but once closed illegal activities diminished dramatically. 

Last year, she was one of the lead organizers for the “Can the Tax” Campaign, a community-led initiative that successfully pressured the Cook County Board of Commissioners to repeal the sugary drink tax.

She is also the President of the Avalon Park Advisory Council where she’s working to bring about much needed repairs to the neglected park.

After learning that the Avalon Park area had off-the-charts lead levels in its drinking water, EWAC alerted the residents and notified them of where they could get free water testing kits. There was no notification from our elected officials.

The 8th Ward has suffered from neglect by its elected officials for more than 10 years.  Linda Hudson is the only candidate who will bring transparency and accountability to the office of 8th Ward Alderman.  Join her in bringing honesty and good government to the 8th Ward.
