Thomas Dugger has lived in Arizona for almost 20 years.  He has worked in  Information Technology and Finance for 35 years. He graduated from The Catholic University in Washington, D.C. with a degree in Computer Science. While attending college, he worked 3 jobs in order to pay for tuition and costly living expenses. After college, he worked for 15 years as the CIO of a consulting firm for several clients including Verizon, ABC Television, Prudential, Chase, AIG, Bank of New York, and Société Générale. Thomas was present for both attacks on the World Trade Center-in 1993 and then in 2001.

 

In 2004, Tom decided to move to Arizona where he formed Arizona Consulting Services. He was drawn by the desert and the dry air. Thomas has four daughters, two of whom are currently enrolled at Northern Arizona University.  One of his daughters is adopted.  His wife is a physician, who currently works as a hospitalist within the Phoenix area. His youngest daughter has cystic fibrosis, which has resulted in a lifelong dedication to healthcare policy.  Healthcare workers across the country, specifically in Arizona, are subject to an alarming rise in verbal aggression and physical violence. Thomas supports increased penalties for those who assault healthcare workers and also believes that bodily autonomy should be preserved as a right.  If elected as State Senator for LD3, Thomas Dugger will fight to increase funding for schools. 51.7% of voters cast their ballots in favor of Proposition 208, yet the measure was struck down, despite having the support of the people.  Thomas Dugger will work to determine the best solutions for the current water crisis, which will only worsen as the population of Arizona grows, and ensure accountability for use of state funds.  Thomas will put our community first, not a political agenda. He is a deal-maker, capable of working across the aisles to get consensus using his business skills working with conservatives for three decades. Vote for Thomas Dugger this November.
