To the Editor
I was endorsed by the Republicans of Wallingford to run, once again, for a seat on the Wallingford Town Council. I thank them for that. Thank you also to Tom Corrigan and Chris Shortell for your nominating speeches. I am truly blessed to have such fine, upstanding Wallingford citizens publicly support my re-election campaign.
It continues to be an honor to serve on the Wallingford Town Council. I need not inform most that with this next election, Wallingford is at a crossroads. There are a lot of things to be addressed: efficient use of technology; Community Pool; safety at, and desirability of our parks; education scores; and high school configuration, just to name a few. There will be many grandiose ideas floated during the campaign. Many without a pricetag. Many that already could have been addressed incrementally – lessening the tax burden. In the wake of these new ideas and expenditures, the fight for smaller government, lower taxes, and less interference in the day-to-day affairs of our law-abiding citizens will become more challenging. Over my seven terms on the Town Council I have fought for these principles, and will continue to do so.
Last and yet certainly not in the least, a heartfelt thank you to the citizens of Wallingford. Your support and comments of encouragement are the fuel that drives the engine – an engine that continues to strive for the above principles, even when faced with what (at times) seems like an insurmountable wall of adversity.
I hope that you and your readers find my track record of service to be acceptable, and see fit to a continuation of support by re-electing me to the Wallingford Town Council in November. For more information: www.fishbeinforcouncil.com
