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.
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.
