Why are you running for office?

Tom believes our federal representatives have not been held accountable for too long. He wants to bring respect and ethics to politics in West Texas and believes his supporters deserve a Congressman who serves the people rather than a political party.

What is the biggest issue facing your community and how do you propose helping?

Our current representative has made clear that his loyalty rests with one person rather than the voters that put him in office. Farmers need to be able to sell their crops rather than rely on government subsidies because of the trade war with China. West Texans need investment in education, rural healthcare, and renewable energy.

How do we fix the partisan divide in our country and start working together again?

Candidates and elected officials needs to serve their districts and their constituents rather than their parties. We need more politicians who see themselves as public servants rather than power brokers.
