Hudgins suffered serious injuries in the incident at his gym, aides to Hudgins said.

The Hudgins family has been residents of Reston since 1969. Hudgins has been the Hunter Mill Supervisor since 1999.

A statement from Cathy Hudgins’ office:

On Friday, March 27, Supervisor Cathy Hudgins’ husband, Willie Hudgins, suffered serious injuries related to a fall. He was rushed to INOVA hospital where he was stabilized and is continuing to undergo treatment.

Supervisor Hudgins wishes to extend her thanks to Fairfax County first responders and hospital staff for their assistance in this difficult time.

Additionally, we want to thank the community for their outpouring of prayers and support for the Hudgins family.

The Hunter Mill District Office continues to conduct business as usual and will update the Hunter Mill District website and Facebook page as further information is available.

We appreciate your concern and cooperation in this very private family matter. Thank you for respecting the family’s privacy during this difficult period.

    While I bear no ill will towards either Willie Hudgins or Cathy Hudgins, I find myself asking myself, “How is this news?” After all, if I took a similar spill, would it be reported in RestonNow? Or is it that Willie Hudgins claim to fame is that he’s married to Cathy Hudgins. If that’s the case, how is it that it’s relevant to us?

    In any case, I wish you a speedy recovery, Willie Hudgins.

      That’s a reasonable question. I think it is news because the supervisor is not at work. In case she starts missing meetings and appearances, it is good to have an explanation before the usual critics will start with “she is slacking off even though she now makes $95K a year.”

      So no, unless you are married to a public elected official, I would not report you falling down and being hospitalized.

        Believe me, no one will notice if she misses work. She does nothing to warrant her salary. I hope Willie feels better soon though.

          WTF is wrong with you?! You’re the crappiest person I’ve ever seen/read- how can you stand yourself? You’re so full of bile– I pity you.

            Wow. Did somebody forget their Chill Pill this morning?

    Here’s hoping Mr. Hudgins makes a fast and full recovery.

    Everyone at RCC is sending our love and prayers to our former Board Chair, Willie Hudgins, and our energy to his family. Willie is one of the kindest, smartest, and most generous human beings–he has been an outstanding civic volunteer. He and Cathy have given of themselves tirelessly to make their community the best place it can be. I know that their legions of friends are pulling for them both.
