Profile

Tom Tierney was a Republican Town Committee member in Massachusetts for more than a decade and served as a delegate to the 1986 and 1990 Republican state conventions.

He was involved in efforts to restructure Framingham's municipal government and acted as an elected member of the community's Home Rule Charter Commission.

Tierney calls himself an essential player in the movement to kill the introduction of mutual insurance holding company laws in several states. He estimates his efforts saved insurance consumers between $200 and $300 billion.

Tierney says he wants to create laws the country needs to protect Social Security.

His other goals, if elected to Congress, include providing Medicare for everybody who wants it, and getting rid of the tax cuts of George W. Bush and President Barack Obama to "restore proper taxation."

Tierney says he'll also work to find jobs for people who have been out of work for a long time.
