In Memory of Thomas J. Smith

We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Tom Smith.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife, Saundy, and his family. 

"Tom cared about every level of government, from Plumcreek Township to Presidential elections.  Federal, state, and local issues were all important to him," said Mike Baker, Chairman of the Armstrong County Republican Party.  He went on to say, "Tom was always full speed ahead, he never stopped working.  Inaction was never an option.  He inspired people to work harder by never using the word "I". It was always, what are 'we' going to do today?"

Mr. Smith was the Republican nominee for US Senate in 2012.  Despite coming up short, he only considered it a minor setback.  He kept advocating for the issues he held dear.  In 2013 he was recognized as the Republican of the Year by the Armstrong County GOP.
