McGrath is running for Troy City Council

Kevin McGrath will announce he is running for the Troy City Council in District 1, which includes most of Lansingburgh, on Monday
According to the press release, McGrath also will unveil initiatives to restore “The Burgh” back to the family friendly neighborhoods and vibrant residential community it once was renowned for throughout the Capital District.
The announcement will take place at 112th Street Park, which in the 1970’s was named “Ed Mugger McGrath Field” as a tribute to the memory of Kevin’s father, Ed McGrath, for his extensive involvement in the Lansingburgh Community.
McGrath’s announcement continues the family’s long tradition of commitment to community, following in the footsteps of his three brothers: Eddy, former two-term Troy City Councilman, District 1; Patrick, former city and county judge and current State Supreme Court Justice 3rd District; and Mickey, a former physician in the Capital District.
A potential candidate for the Republicans is community activist Jim Gordon.
The seat is vacant because Mark Wojcik is serving his fourth and final term on the council.
