Fishbein announces decision to seek re-election
From the Record Journal Newspaper - 4/15/2021
Editor: During the pandemic, various individuals have sought my help as a private attorney, to fight for their rights. Last spring, as a result of my legal representation, the federal courts ordered Governor Lamont to repeal his unconstitutional executive order that totally shut down the process to apply for a firearm permit. The governor complied within days, and that process was restored.
A few months ago, our attorney general agreed to vacate thousands of dollars in fines levied against one of my clients, a single mother with relatively no income, when it was proven that portions of the governor’s travel ban were legally unenforceable.
And, just a few weeks ago, as a result of our case which successfully challenged the legal process by which the governor mandated the wearing of face masks (as opposed to the general wearing of facemasks, no matter what my political opponents may claim), the court ruled his procedure unconstitutional, thereby causing the legislature to convene and vote to re-taking its position as a co-equal third branch of our state government.
As with representing my clients, as an elected official, I have fought for the principles of smaller government, lower taxes, and less interference in the day-to-day affairs of our law-abiding citizens, and that fight is apparently never-ending. With that in mind, I recently filed papers to run, once again, for a seat on the Wallingford Town Council, and have created a website for the campaign: www.fishbeinforcouncil.com.
Please know that I will not be accepting donations for this campaign. I respectfully request that any money you would consider donating you instead use to take your family out for a meal at one of our fantastic local Wallingford restaurants. They are the lifeblood of our local economy, and could use your support. Now, on to November!
Very truly yours,
Craig C. Fishbein, Wallingford
