"Well deserved recognition", said Norman Beaupre of Biddeford.
Mayor Casavant said, "I would like to thank the Biddeford-Saco Rotary Club for awarding me the 2016 Public Sector Award, for 'improving the lives of the people of Biddeford'. It was completely unexpected, and it means a great deal to me, especially knowing all of the great work that the Rotary has done in our cities, as well as the many members who are all committed to improving our quality of life. Thank you."  Prior to serving the City of Biddeford as Mayor, Casavant was a Maine legislator. President William "Bill" Kany is pictured with Mayor Casavant.
