I have personally known Matthew Pacifico for many years. Pacifico is married to the former Kristal Servello, and they have two children, Ethan and Angelo.
After graduation from Bishop Guilfoyle Catholic High School, Pacifico began his business career as a fourth- generation baker at Pacifico's Bakery in Altoona.
Working for the bakery has given him the sense of how to run and operate a business, along with learning finances and budgets.
Pacifico is a very motivated individual, and I believe has the ability to be the mayor of the City of Altoona.
Working together with the other elected officials of our city, he can make a difference.
As a former Republican Blair County commissioner, I give my full support to Matthew Pacifico for mayor of Altoona.
