Career Background:
I served for four years in the U.S. Air Force as a medic at Travis Air Force Base in California. I worked in the intensive care ward and took care of post-op and seriously injured patients including battle casualties from the Viet Nam conflict.

While on the Nashua Fire Department (1970-1991) I served in the New Hampshire Legislature (1989-91) and was appointed by the governor to serve as a commissioner on the NH Public Employer Labor Relations Board.

I then worked for the American Federation of Teachers as a Staff Representative representing teachers, school employees and other public employees. I later worked at UMass Lowell's Center for Family, Work and Community and Lowell Telemedia Center, Lowell's community TV station. I'm currently retired except for my role at the NH Legislature.
