Five file for three council seats


Two incumbents and three newcomers to town politics will vie for three council seats in New Windsor.

Candidates had until yesterday to file for ballot spots in the May 9 election.

Councilman Ronnie Blacksten is seeking his second term, and Councilman Terry Petry will run for a third. Councilman D. Kenneth Grimes, whose term also expires next month, announced his retirement recently after 20 years on the panel.

Also running will be Kevin G. Null, Paul Garver Jr. and J. Edward Green.
