Candidate Bio

Tom was born and raised in Lycoming County, where his father, Joseph, worked two jobs as a firefighter and janitor. Tom learned at an early age from his father that you don’t spend what you don’t have and hard work and personal responsibility is how you make through life. Following his father’s example, Tom went straight to work on the floor of a local manufacturing facility after graduating high school. He worked for years before deciding that he wanted to pursue a college education. Tom enrolled in Lycoming College in Williamsport and began taking classes while still working. Tom was able to graduate magna cum laude from Lycoming and finish a law degree from the Dickinson School of Law within five years.
