Tom Dent

Welcome to my website! Thank you for the privilege of serving as your state representative in the 13th District. I am honored and humbled to work for you.

This state is facing a very serious set of challenges. For too long, partisanship has gotten in the way of progress, which has not served you well. I look forward to working with members on both sides of the aisle to come up with practical and sustainable solutions to the issues that will come before the People’s House.

Inevitably, there will be talk of raising taxes to meet the challenges we face. I do not support new or higher taxes, and believe strong leadership is necessary to find solutions that avoid putting more of a burden on taxpayers. We need to implement common-sense reforms and measures of accountability so government works more efficiently. Government should fulfill its most critical duties, and then let citizens prosper without interference.

As you know, water is a major concern in the 13th District. A top priority of mine will be to work to manage and preserve our water and water rights. Protecting private property rights will always be in the forefront of my mind as well. I will speak out against any and all government overreach that threatens the livelihood of you and your family. I will be a passionate voice for limited, effective government as long as I am here in the Legislature. Finally, I will work to provide a fertile environment for our young adults to have the opportunities to succeed well into the future.

I encourage you to keep in touch with me if you have any questions, comments or concerns. My door is always open.

Thank you for the honor of serving you in the Legislature.

Tom Dent
State Representative
