Tom Licata and his wife Anita have lived in their Burlington, Deforest Road home for 25 years, where they raised their two children, Thomas and Isabel. Over those years, Tom emerged as a community leader, volunteering as a little league baseball coach, scoutmaster, and event and community organizer. He is now a caregiver for the elderly and individuals suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. In 2001, Tom earned the City of Burlington’s Leadership Award for organizing Burlington’s largest ongoing Hill Section Block Party for six consecutive years.
Tom has the professional background to get our economy moving again following the Covid-19 shutdown. He will bring to Montpelier an extensive financial background, including jobs with IBM, Virginia Electric & Power, and McDonald Associates, as well as an MBA from the College of William & Mary.
Tom will bring pragmatism, common sense, and prudence to the job of Representative. “I will measure every action I take against its impact on jobs and your family’s economic health. My goal is to help heal the damage done by the Coronavirus and bring back a livable, affordable, vibrant Burlington for everyone to enjoy. I hope over the next few weeks I can earn your support and your vote.”
