PORTLAND (MAINE) PRESS-HERALD -- Forty-seven years later, Fox is still bucking the system and fighting for underdogs as a South Portland city councilor. It’s the latest chapter of a captivating and somewhat controversial life that led Fox from 1960s protests in New York City and Chicago to Berkeley, where he eventually settled and became a public school administrator. His career and his former wife brought him to Maine in 2005, when he became a school principal and began a period of personal and professional turmoil that stretched over the last decade. Fox got a Bachelor’s degree in Radio and Television from San Francisco State University in 1985 and operated a video production company for a while. After getting a teaching credential in 1990, he began a career in public education that quickly moved into administration.
