Tom Barrett

Tom Barrett served in the U.S. Army for 22 years, with tours in the Iraq War, Guantanamo Bay, Kuwait, and the Korean DMZ, and logged more than 1,000 hours in some of the most advanced helicopters in the world. When Tom returned to Michigan, he was shocked to find so many veterans struggling to find opportunities back home. Michigan had the second highest veteran unemployment rate in the nation and Tom decided to act, running for the legislature, and becoming a leading voice for veterans in Lansing. 

Known as a fiscal hawk, he opposed all taxpayer-funded corporate welfare, including the programs now funding Chinese-owned factories, and fought for tax cuts for all Michiganders. Tom lives in Charlotte with his wife, Ashley, and their four young children. Tom is running for Congress to restore our commitment to America, and the values that took us from a fragile new republic to become the greatest nation on earth.
