Candidate Bio

Lou grew up working in his family’s road construction business, but dreamed of playing centerfield for the New York Yankees. The first in his family to attend college, Lou took a break from studying Elementary Education at Bloomsburg State College (now Bloomsburg University) to tryout for the Cincinnati Reds, but was sent home when the coaches figured out that he could not hit a curve ball. Lou returned to school before re-joining his family in road construction. One day, Lou got a card in the mail advertising a kit for striping parking lots. For $29.95, Lou and his wife, Mary Grace, sent away for the materials and started a small line-painting business.
