Tom Riggs: State Representative #2, District 10
As first-time candidates go, he seems very comfortable in the role.
While admitting he has much to learn, Tom demonstrates knowledge on a broad range of issues, particularly environmental and sustainability.
In true grassroots fashion, Tom collected some 500 signatures to get on the ballot without paying the filing fee, which alone distinguishes him among a wide range of candidates.
Still, having only raised a fraction of the money his incumbent opponent Barbara Bailey has, Tom will surely have a difficult time competing in this lean ‘R’ district.
If you are looking for a long shot, dark horse candidate to put some money or shoe leather behind, you could do no better than Tom Riggs. We believe he will make a hard run for the finish line.
