I am grief stricken by the passing of a giant of a man, Ernie Strada. He was a dear friend and mentor of mine, an extraordinary and knowledgeable speaker! A wonderful family man! A Mayor that I admired who fulfilled the needs of the Village, which he served. He was a man who considered all residents as his family! The loss of Ernie, to me, is the loss of a brother, I loved him! My prayers are with his family during these difficult times.
In honor and memory of Mayor Ernie Strata we have lowered our flag at Old Westbury Village Hall in honor and in memoriam.
God Bless all who loved and were touched by Ernie Strada!
