Democrat to face Carmel town justice
Camille Linson, an attorney in private practice who serves as a Philipstown town justice, on July 23 filed a nominating petition to appear on the Democratic line on the November ballot for the Putnam County Court seat of Judge James Reitz, who died in June at age 57.
The Putnam County Democratic Committee endorsed Linson. County judges preside over family court, surrogates’ court and drug-treatment court.
Joseph Spofford Jr., a justice for the Town of Carmel, filed petitions on July 11 to appear on the Republican and Conservative party lines of the ballot.
