As lifelong Mineola residents, we urge all Mineola voters to support and vote for Mayor Scott Strauss, Trustee George Durham and Dennis Walsh in the upcoming village elections.
We have known Scott Strauss for 20 years and consider him a friend. One of the most genuine and caring persons you can meet, Scott has demonstrated his heroism and community caring as a member of the New York City Police Department, the Mineola Fire Department and the Mineola Ambulance Corp. We also know of his commitment to the Boy Scouts and have worked with him as a coach at the MAA. In short, Scott is not only our mayor, he is an active resident and shares the same concerns as we all do and has a commitment to making Mineola a wonderful place to live.
We also urge the support of Trustee George Durham and Dennis Walsh. Mayor Strauss needs the support on the board to continue in a positive direction. We have watched village after village in the United States move closer to financial ruin while our village has improved their bond rating. No small feat in today’s economic times.
Please consider supporting Mayor Strauss, Trustee Durham and Dennis Walsh on Election Day.
William and Donna Proctor

The BU10 FC Mineola opened league play with 3-0 win over the Hewlett Lawrence Blue Sonic on April 3. Mineola was led by Liam Going (two goals and an assist). The first goal came off a beautiful cross from Liam Russelman that Going sent to the back of the net. Fifteen minutes later the Liam to Liam connection struck again when Russelman found Going open at the top of the box for another shot and score by the talented Mineola player.
Mineola’s final goal came midway through the second half as Gregory Kenney redirected a good cross past the Hewlett goalie. The back line of Peter Murphy, Luke Sommese and Brent Muessig controlled the defensive end of the field limiting the number of shots Hewlett took on goal and the few that made it through were gobbled up by keeper Andrew Pizzardi. Brian Heckelman, Phil Macchietto and James Teadore all contributed with stellar play at the midfield position.
