Mayor and trustees will face challengers
Mayor Dave Merandy and Trustees Fran Murphy and Marie Early will have challengers in the November election for their seats on the Cold Spring Village Board.
Merandy will face Chuck Hustis, a former trustee, for mayor. Murphy, Early and Margaret Parr, a member of the Haldane school board, will campaign for two open trustee seats on the five-member panel. All filed valid nominating petitions with the Putnam County Board of Elections by the May 28 deadline. Merandy is seeking his third, 2-year term and Murphy and Early hope to return for their third terms.
