Hudson Elected Chairman At Macon Transit Authority

 

 

 

 

By Amanda Smith

 

 

 

Thomas E. Hudson has recently been elected as the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Macon Transit Authority.  A board member for 10 years, Hudson served two full terms as the Vice-Chair of the Macon Transit Authority Board of Directors, having first been appointed by former mayor, and now Congressman, Jim Marshall in 1997.  Mayor C. Jack Ellis appointed Hudson to his second and third terms as Vice-Chair.  The Transit Authority’s Board consists of seven people who are appointed by city and county officials.

 

Hudson also holds the Vice President’s position at the Bibb County Board of Education and works full-time as the Executive Director of the Middle Georgia Council on Drugs.

 

Other board members include S. Craig Ross as the new Vice-Chair, Morris Cohen as Secretary, and new board member Chuck Howard.

 

Over the years, Hudson has watched the Macon Transit Authority grow and progress.  But he still has concerns about some of the residents who rely on the bus for transportation.  “One of the biggest challenges that I see the Authority facing is getting the funds needed to equate for area growth into the county, and to have Sunday service added,” he said.   

 

Tom wants the public to know the advantages of using public transportation.  “Today and every day is a GREAT day to ride the bus.  By riding buses, we can build relationships with our neighbors while doing our part to cut down on air pollution.  You don’t have to worry about gas prices, parking, or traffic,” he said.  “It’s economical and amazing what you can see if you sit back, relax, and let us do the driving.”
