Death leaves a hole in Hudson

HUDSON

The death of Sante “Santino” Parente, who succumbed to liver cancer last month at the age of 60, has left both a hole in the social fabric of Hudson and an opening on the town's Planning Board.

Parente, who was born in Italy and came to the United States in 1974, was the father of Board of Selectmen Chairman Santino “Sonny” Parente and the owner of a local auto repair shop and gas station. His term on the Planning Board would have expired next year.

Town official said that anyone interested in finishing Parente's term should submit a cover letter, resume and board and committee interest card to the selectmen’s office on the third floor of town hall by March 1. The board plans to interview candidates at its March 20 meeting. The new member would be appointed until the May election.

Anyone interested can contact Town Planner Jennifer Burke by e-mail or by calling (978) 562-9963.
