About Me

Who Is Cliff Hudson?

Cliff Hudson has spent most of his life both personally and professionally managing and leading local and global organizations and businesses and positioned each to reach their highest potential of excellence.

As the son of a man who grew up in the Jim Crow segregated, rural South, hard work and preparation was the cornerstone of his upbringing. Cliff carries these deeply rooted values with him today.

Growing up in New Brighton,  Pennsylvania, Cliff received a  Bachelor’s Degree from the California University of Pennsylvania. As a freshman, he was selected to sit on the Disciplinary Committee, where he and one other student participated in the Research and Development of new study courses.  In addition, Cliff was one of the first three African Americans in the school’s history to graduate as a U.S Army officer.

Cliff has served in various leadership positions in the U.S. Army Combat Development Experimentation Command and the 91st Training Brigade. After finishing active duty, Cliff has held a wide variety of global leadership positions, most notably at Advance Micro Devises, Intel Corporation, and Linear Technology.  Currently, Cliff is the CEO and owner of Fresh Coat Painters, the largest residential and commercial painting franchise of over 150 locations nationwide.

Since moving to Tracy 26 years ago, Cliff continues serving and leading our community. He has held a variety of leadership positions including, Governing Head Coach for the Tracy Raider organization, Chairman of the Board for the Tracy Chamber of Commerce, Vice-Chair of the Tracy Planning Commission, Board member of the Grand Foundation, Board member of Sow A seed Foundation and member of the Tracy Police Advisory Committee.

  1. Possesses a remarkable balance of attention to detail and practical strong leadership skills that Tracy needs during these turbulent times.
  2. A proven collaborative leader that listens.
  3. Has served his community and country as a successful business owner, Vice-Chair of the Planning Commission of Tracy, and U.S. Army officer.

Cliff grew up in a small town outside of Pittsburgh, PA and it wasn’t until he moved to Tracy 26 years ago did he get that same home town feeling again.

His decision to run is because he hasn’t had that same feeling around town during the past few years as he and a lot of us do not like what we see in the bitter, personal attacks from our city leaders.

Leadership is what is missing and attention to the details and facts is what is missing and that is what he will bring to our council.

I’ve watched and worked with Cliff in a number of leadership positions over the last 8 years and he impresses me as a highly motivated and level-headed leader that cares about Tracy.

He exhibits a remarkable balance of attention to detail, with practicality and strong leadership skills that we currently need going forward. He cares about our town, not only his agenda. As a former Mayor and City Council Member for 23 years, I know what it takes to do the very difficult job on Council. Cliff possesses the skill of listening, then carefully processing what is best for Tracy. In our discussions he is thoughtful and fact driven when making decisions and is driven by doing the right thing. Cliff stands for the things that I do, higher quality of life and economic success for Tracy.

A proven collaborative leader, a Tracy small business owner, and a smart open-minded thinker. This is what Tracy needs at the helm. Cliff Hudson is that person! We are fortunate to have him as a candidate for City Council.

Brent Ives - Former Mayor of Tracy

As November 3rd rapidly approaches, Tracy voters will be asked to elect two new council members. With no incumbents seeking re-election, a number of relatively unknown candidates are vying for council seats, with one obvious exception. Cliff Hudson, unlike the other candidates, has a history of service and commitment to the City of Tracy.

Cliff is a business owner who has created jobs, understands a balance sheet and knows what it means to sign paychecks that allow his employees to take care of their families. He has been a leader in the local business community through his service with the Tracy Chamber of Commerce.

Cliff Hudson has served the community directly through his service on the Tracy Planning Commission, where he earned a reputation for his fair, objective and independent execution of his duties. Cliff’s experience as a business owner, family man, Veteran and public servant far exceeds that of any other candidate. During the eight years that I had the honor of serving on the Tracy City Council, I would have loved to have a Cliff Hudson serving with me. Please vote Cliff Hudson for Tracy City Council.
