Mitch will oversee all aspects of the campaign and maintain day-to-day operations.
Tom and his family have called the 12th Senate District home for over 25 years.
Tom grew up on a dairy farm near Elmwood, Wisconsin. Growing up on a farm, Tom learned the importance of hard work, self-sufficiency and accountability at an early age. After graduating from UW-River Falls, Tom worked for a Minnesota farm cooperative where he later became the manager of the cooperative’s petroleum division.
Since being elected, representing the priorities of the Northwoods has been my number one priority. I will bring your voice to Madison and keep fighting for you.
Wanting to move back to his home state, Tom relocated to Minocqua. There, Tom managed the Zenker Oil petroleum distribution. Three years later in 1991, Tom and Chris became the proud owner/operators of an excursion business on the Willow Flowage which they eventually sold in 2013. Tom and Chris are raising their daughters Karlyn, Lexie, and Katherine on the Willow Flowage, along with their dog Carmel.
Before being elected to the Wisconsin Legislature, Tom served as a Town Supervisor in the Town of Little Rice and continues to work as a dam tender on the flowage. Tom also served on the Oneida County Economic Development Corporation Board as well as the Board of Directors for the Wisconsin Restaurant Association. Tom was elected to the State Assembly in 2010 and elected to the State Senate in 2012.
