The City of Midland’s Deputy City Manager will retire after serving his hometown for more than 23 years.
A reception honoring Tommy T. Hudson will take place at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 14 in Courtroom A at the Municipal Courthouse located at 201 E. Texas Street.
Prior to his appointment as Deputy City Manager in 2008, Hudson served as Interim City Manager and Assistant City Manager for Midland. Hudson began his career at the City of Midland as a management intern in 1994. He oversees the City’s internal support departments, including General Services, Administrative Services, Communications and Information Systems, and Finance.
“Tommy’s service to the City of Midland has been extraordinary, both in terms of tenure and the positive impact of his leadership on our employees and the community,” said City Manager Courtney Sharp. “His fingerprints are on so many projects and initiatives that continue to touch the lives of Midlanders. We have been fortunate to call him both friend and colleague throughout the years.”
Hudson earned his Bachelor of Business Administration from Angelo State University, and his Master of Public Administration from Troy State University. He graduated from Midland High School in 1985 and served his country in the U.S. Navy from 1989 through 1993.
“It has been an honor to have served the community in which I was raised,” Hudson said. “The individuals that I have worked with over the years are second to none. There are no regrets; the City of Midland has been a blessing to me both professionally and personally - it is home!”
In retirement, Hudson will continue to serve others through ministry and spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ. He is a proud father to his three grown daughters, Joelle, Chelsea and Paschelle, and husband to his wife, Pearlie Hudson.
