Residency of biddeford school official questioned

BIDDEFORD – A question regarding the residency of Biddeford School Committee member Anthony Michaud has come up; Michaud was re-elected this fall to the board, after serving five terms. His address is listed on the school department’s website as 6 Village Lane. However, online records show that Michaud sold that property in 2005.

Michaud said his address in Biddeford is 24 Lamothe Ave. and that he’s lived there for the past six years. City Clerk Carmen Morris said that a candidate’s residency is verified by their voter registration.

Public records show Michaud owns a house in Kennebunk with his fiancé, Sarah Dugas. Michaud denied living there and said he only co-signed a loan with her in September 2016.

Michaud did not return a request for comment when asked where he would live once married or what would become of the Kennebunk property, but said he plans to remain in Biddeford for the time being as he considers a run for mayor, only if Mayor Alan Casavant does not run again for the position.
