A Republican, Sharon has volunteered for candidates and been active in conservative causes for many years, She is a former First Vice President of North Mecklenburg Republican Women, has served in the MeckGOP as a delegate, precinct chairman, secretary and poll observer.
She attended four state conventions, and offered a resolution that was accepted at the Mecklenburg County Convention; a rule change that was accepted at the 9th District Convention; and a plank that was added to the Platform of the N.C. Republican Party.
She is one of the founders and former co-chairman of Lake Norman Conservatives and a Board member of Widen I-77.
She ran for the N.C. House Seat 98 in 2014.
Sharon has been a leader in the Lake Norman area fighting the plan to build toll lanes on I-77. The road uses Public-Private Partnership funding, creating a bloated project that costs too much and does not meet the needs of the citizens. This “Obamacare” of transportation was pushed through, in spite of tremendous community opposition, by Thom Tillis, then the Speaker of the N.C. House.
As Congress begins the task of improving the nation’s infrastructure, Sharon wants to make sure that citizens voices are not ignored, and that these failing financial models are not forced on the American people.
“When an elected official goes to great lengths to ignore the wishes of his constituents, he does not deserve to be re-elected,” Hudson said. “I’m running for the U.S. Senate to retire Thom Tillis.”
