March 14, 2018 was the Fairview Park “State of the Community” address night by Mayor Eileen Patton and Superintendent Dr. Bill Wagner at the Gemini Center. Nearly 300 citizens attended this dynamic and most engaging overview of the city and the schools.
Fairview Park Democratic Club members Bridget King, Sue Streitel, Laurie Hutchinson and 16th District State House Rep Candidate Cassimir Svigelj took the opportunity to invite any “State of the Community” attendees to complete Voter Registration forms, to review information about Candidates in the May 2018 elections, or to join our Club.
