Hudson City Council voted unanimously to appoint Thomas Sheridan as Hudson City Manager at the October 4, 2022, Council Meeting. Thom has been Interim City Manager since March of 2022. The selection was made after a nationwide search for candidates for the position.  

“Thom Sheridan has the experience in the community, the respect of an overwhelming majority of his coworkers, and the trust of Council, which will all help him succeed in the City Manager role. Combined with his tenure, engineering mindset, and fact-based attitude, I cannot imagine a more qualified individual,” said Council President Chris Foster.

“I am truly honored the Hudson City Council unanimously selected me as the new City Manager to lead the city. Hudson is a vibrant and historic city with the finest schools and neighborhoods, world-class companies, and a safe place to live. As a long-time employee of the city, I understand the historic characteristics of the city, and I will strive to protect the charm that makes Hudson an excellent community in which to live, work and visit. I am dedicated to driving economic development to help support the Council’s goals for the future, and I will ensure the excellent service all of our employees provide the city,” said Thom Sheridan.

In addition to being the Chief Administrative Officer for the City of Hudson, the position is also the Director of Public Safety for the city. Along with his City Manager duties, Thom will continue with his previous responsibilities as Assistant City Manager (ACM), and the ACM position will be eliminated.
