Frank B. Ford

About Me

I am a tennis player and avid gardener, and was a youth baseball coach until my kids outgrew my expertise. I am a big baseball and football fan, as well as a fan of women’s college basketball (look at where I got my M.F.A. degree and you may understand why). I do volunteer work for my undergraduate alma mater. I believe that the Constitution applies to drunk driving cases!
