Tom has lived in Florida since he was one year old. He graduated from Florida State University with a Bachelor’s in Criminology. He has worked in Florida state government, including the Parole and Probation Commission, the Auditor General’s office, and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. While with the FDLE, he investigated white-collar crime.
Tom is a proud U.S. Air Force veteran. He was spurred to become active in politics following the 2000 election in which the U.S. Supreme Court ignored the will of the people and awarded George Bush the Presidency. Since then, Tom has served as Charlotte County’s 13th Precinct Captain. In 2016, Tom was selected as a delegate to the DNC Convention. In January 2017, he and his wife, Lucy, were elected as FDP State Committee members for Charlotte County.
