Mayors Award Winner Announced

Village of East Williston Mayor David Tanner announced last week that this year’s recipient of the annual Mayors Award will be building inspector Robert Campagna.

 

“It was an unexpected surprise and honor when Mayor Tanner told me that I was being given this award,” Campagna said. “The mayor and village board have been very supportive, allowing me the ability to practice in a professional but fair manner.”

 

Campagnas has lived in East Williston for 30 years, holding the Building Inspector title for nearly 20 of them. He earned a BA in architecture in 1977, and has been a licensed architect for 35 years, specializing in residential alterations and additions.

 

According to Campagna, one of the greatest honors of his career was when then-mayor Nancy Zolezzi, and Tanner, who was a trustee at the time, asked Campagna to assist in doing a master plan for East Williston.  

 

“What resulted was the expansion of the Village Hall, dedicated October 2010, increasing needed space for the library and village office, as well as bringing the building into compliance with handicapped accessibility,” Campagna said.

 

A ceremony will be held on Monday, May 26, where Campagna will receive the award on the Village Green.  He will attend with his wife Vivian of 41 years and three children, Michael, Matthew and Elise.

The debate over New York State Common Core standards continues, with students from the Mineola School District showing a mild resistance to the exams.

 

According to the New York State Allies for Public Education, Mineola had some of the lowest numbers, with eight students opting out of the English Language Arts test. However, not a single Mineola student missed the math test. In East Williston, the opt out rates were 75 students in ELA and 60 in math.

Gitangalie Palombo, an Elmont yoga instructor, will open Fly High Dance and Fitness on the second floor at 111 E. Jericho Tpke. after her plan was approved by the Mineola Village

“We want to be a great addition to the community,” she said. “I hope Fly High brings a new flare to the area.”


Sports

The New York Cosmos hosted the Mineola Athletic Association’s Soccer Club recently for its penultimate fall 2014 home game. More than 140 members of the MAA soccer club and their families came out on a chilly October evening to show their love of the game. Twenty-two Mineola boys and girls had the honor of escorting the New York Cosmos and Ottawa Fury players onto the field in the traditional “Walk of Champions.”

 

The Mineola spirit must have inspired the home team, as spectators enjoyed the exciting 2-1 Cosmos victory, with the game-winning goal coming in stoppage time.


As a current member of the Mineola High School Varsity Soccer team, senior, Catherine Cunningham has been dominating the scoring for the Mustangs.  She has 12 goals and two assists in the last seven games. 

 

In her last week of play alone, she amassed six goals in just three games. As a captain for the last two years, Cunningham has been an All-Conference and All-Class player, leading her team to two victories so far this season.
