Antioch Councilman Arne Simonsen sent over this picture of him walking in the Antioch Veteran’s Day Parade.
He wanted me to see that he was wearing his Navy chief’s uniform, a feat many veterans — and the rest of us — may not be able to replicate due to advancing girth in their golden years. Simonsen lost his re-election bid earlier this month but he is lobbying heavily to win an appointment to a vacant seat on the council.
