I attended Biddeford High School, and I am a veteran of the Vietnam War and a survivor of the ’68 Tet Offensive. Outside of my service in the Army, I have lived in Biddeford all my life. I worked in the local shops as a machine operator and as a security officer. My wife, Nancy Rabida, and I have been married for 47 years, and have six grown children, 18 grandchildren and one great-grandson.

I have seen a lot of legislators come and go. Rep. Martin Grohman, D-Biddeford, is one who has steadfastly worked for veterans. I urge my fellow citizens to re-elect him.
