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."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.
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.
