My reason for running for Congress is simple and singular - I want to create laws that will benefit our American family and a seat in Congress is far and away the best place to make this happen.
While I have thoughts on almost every subject, there are two areas where, as a practicing actuary, I have considerable expertise and where I'm focusing my campaign efforts - the preservation of our country's Social Security System and the reformation of America's health care delivery system.

Social Security will soon be heavily debated in Congress. If elected, my focus will be to persuade my fellow representatives to keep benefits essentially unchanged for all of our citizens.
"Who said Tom never wears a suit?"
Health care in America is way over-priced and not easily accessed by many of our people. Congress doesn't even know where to begin in solving these problems. If elected, my focus will be to show them an approach they can confidently enact.
The Tom Tierney for Congress cause is noble and just; we've got a good chance of winning; and I hope you'll join with me in making it happen.
