Winners and Losers this week in the Record Journal

As published in the Record Journal on Saturday June 1, 2013

For the fourth consecutive year, fundraising has made the annual Fourth of July fireworks celebration possible. In 2009, the mayor stopped including funds for fireworks show in the town budget. In response, Town Councilors Jason Zandri and Craig Fishbein formed the Wallingford Fireworks Fund, a nonprofit organization, to raise money for the event. Fishbein has since ended his participation with the group, but still advocates for the show. Zandri continues to work with a small group of volunteers that collected the approximately $30,000 that’s needed for the show.
