Learn more about Tom Marino
Since being elected to the US House of Representatives in 2010, Tom Marino has fulfilled his promise to the residents of Pennsylvania’s 10th District. Tom, who is known and respected on both sides of the aisle as a fiscal conservative, has played an integral role in the fight to rein in out of control spending and eliminate burdensome regulations that are crippling our nation.
Tom was born and raised in Lycoming County, where his father, Joseph, worked two jobs as a firefighter and janitor. Tom learned at an early age from his father that you don’t spend what you don’t have and hard work and personal responsibility is how you make through life.
Following his father’s example, Tom went straight to work on the floor of a local manufacturing facility after graduating high school. He worked for years before deciding that he wanted to pursue a college education.
Tom enrolled in Lycoming College in Williamsport and began taking classes while still working. With the support of his family, friends and the community, Tom was able to graduate magna cum laude from Lycoming and finish a law degree from the Dickinson School of Law within five years.
The next few years, Tom spent practicing law in a private practice before deciding to enter public service. He ran for District Attorney of Lycoming County in 1991 and won. Tom proudly served Lycoming County for ten years.
His service and dedication to protecting the residents of Lycoming County did not go unnoticed. Tom was appointed in 2002 as the United States Attorney for the Middle District of Pennsylvania by President George W. Bush.
As a United States Attorney, Tom fought to keep the streets of Pennsylvania safe by prosecuting a wide range of federal offenders, from violent criminals to white collar businessmen who cooked the books. After completing his service as a federal prosecutor, Tom returned to private practice where he began to see firsthand the hardships Pennsylvanians were facing as a result of the Obama-Reid-Pelosi big government agenda. He felt so strongly that America was going in the wrong direction that he ran to represent the 10th District in Congress and he has been fighting to right America’s course in Washington ever since. For the past four years, he has been focused on cutting government spending, promoting private-sector job creation, keeping taxes low, and creating a better tomorrow for the next generation.
Tom and his wife, Edie, have two children, Chloe, 19, and Victor, 15, and reside in Cogan Station, just outside Williamsport.
