To a wonderful man, that was a mentor to me in my early life. Tom took me under his wing and coached me as I entered into local politics. We first met when I worked for then Mayor of Tampa Bob Martinez, who was running for Governor. Tom and Diane were the Charlotte County Co Chairs for his campaign. After my time in Tallahassee Tom encouraged me to run for what was then The CC Development Authority, know now as The CC Airport Authority, Then after my term there, Tom suggested that I run for CC school board. Tom always gave me great advice as he stirred me to to all of my successful campaigns including two terms as CC GOP Vice Chair. I owe a lot to the dynamic duo of Tom and Diane, I will always cherish your kind spirit and friendship, God Speed Colonel
