Readers Write: Fairgrieve has right experience for village justice

Dan Offner
I am writing to urge your readers to support an individual who possesses great experience and integrity in this year’s Mineola Village justice election – Judge Scott Fairgrieve.
I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Scott for nearly 40 years. Scott served for many years as Trustee on the Mineola village board and served as deputy mayor when my mother Ann Galante was mayor.
Scott is one of the hardest working, dedicated and community-minded people I’ve ever seen. His boundless energy is incredible and he has given so much of his time to Mineola.
Between the Mustang Run, the Kiwanis Club, the Mineola Historical Society, Knights of Columbus and so many other organizations and causes, Scott has made a lasting mark on our village through his decades of community involvement.
In recent years, he has served as a judge for the moot court at St. Aidan’s School and also visits high schools in the area to warn students of the dangers of drunk driving.
I’ve witnessed his integrity first hand – through his generosity towards charitable causes, his fine sense of ethics and his treatment of others.   He is always the first to lend a hand when an individual in the community has a health issue or other personal crisis.
He’s the kind of person who always does the right thing – even when no one is watching.  And that’s the definition of integrity.
Scott’s 20 years of experience as a Nassau County District Court Judge give him a level of expertise that is rarely seen at the village level.  He would be an outstanding, fair and firm Mineola Village Justice.
I urge my fellow residents to join me in voting for Judge Scott Fairgrieve on Row C on Wednesday, March 18 between 6 a.m. – 9 p.m. at the Mineola Community Center.
Additionally, I urge my fellow Mineola residents to give their support to our two outstanding Village Trustees Paul Cusato and Paul Pereira who are running for re-election.  These two fine gentlemen have dedicated many years of service to our community and deserve our support.
Thank you.
Joseph Galante
