On Sept. 15, in Mineola, we are having an election for village justice.
This is the election which was to take place in March. However, because of the coronavirus the election has been rescheduled.
I’d like to talk about Judge Scott Fairgrieve. Scott would bring a new spirit to our justice bench. Judge Fairgrieve has served our village as a deputy mayor, trustee and founder and participant in the Mineola Mustang Run, which donated funds to our hometown organizations for 25 years.
He has also been a board member of many organizations — for example, Kiwanis, Knights of Columbus, Mineola Historical Society and Mineola Chamber of Commerce, which has made our town very great.
He now serves in the Nassau County District Court as an elected justice and has the experience as a private practice as a lawyer in Mineola.
Scott would bring to our bench something we need in Mineola, a justice who would look at every case before him from a parking ticket to a zoning violation.
Judge Fairgrieve will be fair, with empathy and compassion, as only a man with his background can.
Vote for Judge Scott Fairgrieve on the Experience and Integrity Party Line on Tuesday, Sept. 15, at Village Hall or by absentee ballot.
