    I wanted to vote for this young man, but they wanted my email and password. Are they serious?

    I’ve gotten to know Billy through my work at both the Burroughs Community Center and the Smilow-Burroughs Clubhouse and he is truly a remarkable young man and a great success story for Bridgeport. It’s amazing he is the leading vote-getter in this national competition as of today. This $50K Maytag scholarship will go a long way in helping Billy and other kids with their college tuition needs. I’m asking the OIB faithful to spend a few minutes a day to VOTE FOR BILLY!
