Readers Write: Strauss has overseen smart growth, sound budgets

The Island Now

I have personally known Scott Strauss for almost my entire life.

In addition to growing up with Scott, I have worked alongside him in the Mineola Volunteer Ambulance Corps, the New York City Police Department and in my current role at a major health system here on Long Island.

His reputation at each and every agency is impeccable. He is looked upon as a leader and a person of the highest integrity. His sense of duty to his responsibilities are second to none. I proudly support him in his re-election for mayor of Mineola.

During his tenure as the mayor of Mineola, he has steered the village through new development projects, allowing smart growth to help ensure and maintain a stable tax base.

He has also overseen the redevelopment of Mineola Memorial Park into a wonderful “jewel” for the enjoyment of the residents of Mineola.

If the enthusiasm and attendance at the last few summer concert series are any indications, we will be enjoying their wonderful park for years to come.

Scott along with trustees Walsh and Durham have kept the village finances “on track” and have reduced debt while maintaining essential services.

In a time where it seems a different municipality emerges every day as being in fiscal distress, it is comforting knowing Mineola’s financial standing is excellent.

I respectfully encourage my fellow residents to re-elect Mayor Scott Strauss and Trustees Walsh and Durham on election day March 20.
