Tom Smith is a Combat Medic, Firefighter, Refugee Aid Worker, and Proud Democrat. Husband and foster parent to two amazing kids. Seeking to serve Maryland House of Delegates District 14 with the Courage to Care.

After graduating from the Air Force Academy, Tom deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan to lead teams of medics into combat. He saw the suffering and injustice there firsthand, which reinforced his lifelong commitment to putting service before self. His devotion led to him fighting forest fires here in the U.S., working with a veteran-led NGO’s in a Syrian refugee camp, and responding to an earthquake in Ecuador. Tom has seen how powerful an act of service can be—and how challenging, yet rewarding, it can be to create positive change.

The divisiveness of the 2016 presidential election made Tom realize that his service was needed back home. After helping a fellow veteran run for Congress, Tom decided to join the fight himself. He moved to Montgomery County and first worked with veterans in Congress to craft bipartisan legislation as the Policy Director for the For Country Caucus. He currently serves as the special assistant to Lieutenant Governor-Elect Aruna Miller. Tom has been fortunate to live in UpCounty first, then established deep roots in Burtonsville. Most importantly, he and his wife Amy became foster parents in 2020. With three young kids in our public school system, Tom will fight to create a better future for all our children.

We Care

MoCo is doing well for some, but not all. Despite being in one of the wealthiest counties in America, there are still areas of this district that are being left behind, and Tom is committed to working for them. The wealth gap has increased, especially in communities of color, where 80% of families do not earn a livable wage and child poverty is skyrocketing.

Tom and his amazing team are conducting a listening tour of D-14 this November and December: making phone calls to voters to hear the issues that matter most. Tom knows that Democrats need to do more outreach in our immigrant, foster, and unhoused communities to make sure everyone has a voice at the table.
