Mail: Brewer embodies service, integrityTell North Platte what you think

Tom Brewer is eminently qualified to represent the people of the Third District in Washington, D.C. His experience, education, and knowledge give him special qualities that are much needed in our government. 

Tom is a leader, listener, and is action oriented. 

I served closely with Tom for the better part of a year in Afghanistan. I observed him working with military personnel of all nations, personnel from a myriad of organizations within the U.S Government, personnel across the Afghanistan government, and personnel from other nation’s governments.

His expertise and intellect in these interactions contributed to the successes in our mission in fighting our enemies and helping the Afghan people. He possesses a quality personality that allows him to establish almost instant rapport with most all he meets -- a man with empathy and understanding. 

He gained the respect of all who came in contact with him and was known as one that could be counted on. I have observed him handle routine as well as grave emergency situations with an equal degree of calm good judgment.

Tom will bring common sense, critical thought, and down-to-earth input in dealing with the issues that face the people he will serve and our country. He is a man with the courage of his convictions.                

 Tom Brewer will do what is expected of our elected leaders; he will serve with integrity and honesty.
