Lima attorney to seek Oxley's seat

The Findlay Courier says former Lima law director Richard Siferd becomes the first Democrat to launch a campaign for the 4th CD.
Siferd said during his visit in Findlay, "I'll be talking about the economy, jobs, education and health care."

Siferd is a 1962 Lima Senior High School graduate. He graduated in 1970 from Ohio State University with a bachelor of arts degree in English. He earned his law degree from Case Western Reserve School of Law in 1973.

Licensed since 1973 with the firm of Siferd & McCluskey, Siferd served as Lima's law director from 1980-1984. He is a member of the American Bar Association; Association of Trial Lawyers of America; Ohio Academy of Trial Lawyers; Allen County Bar Association, where he is a past president; and the William Howard Taft Inns of Court, Master of the Bench.

Siferd served in the Army from 1965-1969. He received an honorable discharge as a staff sergeant in the field artillery, with combat service in Vietnam.
We don't know much about Siferd and we'd welcome any information. We find it interesting that as a Vietnam Vet, he doesn't mention anything about Iraq.
