Tom wears many hats, including being the Executive Director of Free Ohio Now and the State Director of Ohio Freedom Action Network ( Through these positions, he has worked hard alongside many dedicated people to bring together like-minded leaders and individuals from across Ohio to facilitate communication and coordinated actions in the cause of perpetuating our God-given inalienable rights of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

Tom is seated in the first row in this picture of the Executive Committee of the Ohio School Board Constitutional Coalition (, which is an OhioFAN Working Group and has the goal of helping to identify and elect constitutionally-minded school board members and then serve as mentors once they are in office.

He has been honored to serve the taxpayers, voters, staff, teachers, and especially students during his almost 12-year tenure.

He is the father of two grown children and retired as an IT program manager from the Navy Reserve after a 21-year career, during which he served in Iraq from 2006 to 2007. 

We are proud to team with our friend, Tom Hach, and honor him as this month’s BEST Dad!
