Tom is a United States Army Veteran who served in Panama and in the 82nd Airborne as a scout sniper and machine gunner. He went on to earn a Bachelors of Science in Neural-Psychology and Sociology, and a Bachelors for Creative Non-fiction Writing.

He's a strong supporter of worker's rights, universal health care, and increased investments in renewable energy.
"I pledge to never accept Wall Street money, or hold any investments or stocks in any company, while serving as a Congressman. Campaign donations from corporations are business investments. US Representatives who accept corporate money are pressured to vote in their donors’ (not the voters’) best interests. That isn’t Democracy; that’s called a “plutocracy” – when the wealthiest control the government. As your Congressman, I will support legislation to overturn Citizens United."
Take a look at the anti-corruption legislation that Tom is already considering:
I. Congressional Sunshine Act
This house law requires house representatives to deliberate and take official action on agency business in an open and public meeting that will be recorded and made public. This law is not restricted to a set quorum, any form of communication or discussion between two or more people can be considered a meeting.
II. Private Industry PAC Dissolution Act
This house law requires the dissolution and prohibition of the formation of political PACs by any Partnership, Sole Proprietorship, corporation, S corporation or Limited Liability Companies (LLC).
III. Employment PAC Contribution Protections Act
No employee can be required or requested to contribute to any political PAC. Employees are not allowed to be questioned about their PAC contribution status.
IV. Overturn Citizens United ruling
