For Fairgrieve, Two Years Makes Difference
Since Linda Fairgrieve was elected to the Mineola Village Board two years ago, a lot has changed in her life - her mother died, her husband became a judge, she became the chairperson for the Mineola Mustang Run, had heart surgery, returned to work as a full-time claims examiner and visited Italy. However, one thing Fairgrieve hopes doesn't change is her position on the board.
