Meet the Candidate

Running For:
City Council
Small Business Owner (7 years)
2 years college
Kelsey Hudgins (Wife), Red (Golden Retriever)
In 2019, I was fortunate enough to take part in a mission trip to Guatemala, this experience presented a vast cultural change that awakened me further to how fortunate I am to live in this community and country. I have always had a sense of wanting to give back to my community, but now that desire has become even stronger as I seek to serve on the Gilbert Town Council. I plan to leverage my experience as a small business owner and my time spent Chairman of the Gilbert Redevelopment Commission for downtown Gilbert to benefit the community at a policy level. https://votehudgins.com/about/
