Michael Castaldo
Member of ONE
Show appearance: Sept. 14, 2008

Born Sep. 5, 1965 Bronx NY. Moved to Mahopac, NY 1966. Graduated Mahopac High 1983, enrolled Pratt Institute Brooklyn, NY Fine Arts Major. Finished Communication Design Major 1988. Concurrently in 1984 he joined the United States Marine Corp. Fall 1984 posted to his reserve unit at Floyd Bennett Field, Brooklyn NY. Received many letters of merit, honorably discharged 1990.

Married to Christine Castaldo 1991. Moved to San Francisco CA. He worked as a stockbroker for the first eight years we were there, had three sons then in 2000 when my youngest son was diagnosed with autism he quit to become a stay-at-home dad and caregiver.

In 2005 they moved to Dover NH. As this was also his fortieth trip around the sun he was prone to melancholy. While watching one of his favorite Britcoms "the Vicar of Dibly" the vicar in an episode titled "The Anniversary" was also turning forty. As is typical to the plot of the show the rest of the cast tease her, this time over her request to join her in asking the G8 leaders (then meeting at Glenn Eagles) to Make Poverty History. At the end of the show they consent to watching a video on the MPH website that shows a interview of two young boys. They had just lost their mother to AIDS and were soon to loose their father. The cast is silent, all wearing a white band, and the only sound that could be heard is him weeping. He rose from his chair, and announced to his wife I must do something - that it would not do to have this continue.

After a little googling he found that "MPH" was "ONE" here in the states. He bought some ONE bands, made his own ONE "t" shirts and started handing them out at the local brewpub. That was good, but then the chance to meet the candidates for president came to town (literally). After a speech on poverty and a brief photo-op with former Sen. Edwards, he had the good fortune to meet Sen. John McCain at a private house party right here in Dover. It was the first of many meetings between them. In those days Sen. Obama was traveling without the Secret Service so access was just as easy; and he was just as gracious and magnanimous. In fact all the candidates who would eventually become "front runners" gave him and ONE the same level of respect as those who were early to leave the contest.

In the months that followed he made many good friends on the 'trail'. Encouragement has come from both sides of the aisle, and at every event he felt as if he made a connection with a few of his neighbors and that was all he needed to consider it a successful day.

Now he spends his days as a cook at the brand new Dover "Margaritas" trying to work harder than the kids half his age.

Her son, a private first class with the 23rd Infantry Regiment of the Army's 2nd Infantry Division, has been stationed in Baghdad since July, 2006. He is a gunner in mortar unit, and was due to come home this summer. His tour of duty, along with all other soldiers in the Army serving in Iraq, was just extended by 3 months. Anne teaches math at Lawrence High School in Massachusetts and had not been a political activist -- until recently. "This is the first time I've ever gotten publicly involved in anything...This is not my regular MO," she stated in an interview with a reporter from the Lawrence Eagle-Tribune. At one time Anne considered the war in Iraq to be a necessary response to the September 11th attacks, and felt that she should give the benefit of the doubt to her elected leaders. However, the more she learned about the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq, the more she questioned the war. Two weeks after her son turned 18, just after high school graduation, he joined the Army. She attended his graduation from boot camp, and then sent him off to a war she did not believe in. She joined Mililtary Families Speak Out in September, 2006. She first spoke out at a rally on New Year's Day, 2007 in Boston to commemorate and mourn the 3,000th U.S. troop death in Iraq, telling the assembled crowd, "We weep with each passing day, as three or more U.S. troops and countless Iraqi children, women and men lose their lives in a war based on lies." She was quoted in a USA Today story about the 3,000th troop death. She and her daughter traveled to Washington, D.C. later in January, 2007 to join a contingent of 150 member families of Military Families Speak Out from across the country as they participated in a large demonstration, march and rally opposing the war in Iraq and calling for the the troops to be brought home now and taken care of when they get home.

Dick received a B.A. in government from Boston University and a law degree from Boston College Law School.

Dick began his legal career in legal services, spending 11 years in the Keene and Concord offices of New Hampshire Legal Assistance. Among the cases he litigated at NHLA were Laaman vs. Helgemoe and Garrity vs. Gallen. Laaman resulted in a sweeping order by the late Judge Hugh Bownes requiring major improvements in conditions, educational, vocational medical, mental health and other services and programs at the New Hampshire State Prison as well as the abolishment of solitary confinement. Garrity, or the Laconia State School suit, was recently given the distinction by New Hampshire Magazine as one of the two most important class action law suits in New Hampshire's history. Dick was lead trial counsel in a nearly 3 month trial which led to a sweeping order by the late Judge Shane Devine requiring, among other things, that the state establish the Area Agency-community service system and ensure that local school districts assume educational responsibility for children placed at Laconia. The case ultimately led to the closure of the state school, making New Hampshire the first state in the union to run a virtually institution free system of services for persons with developmental disabilities.
