Tom Zawistowski is the recent past president of the state-wide Ohio Liberty Coalition and has been running the Portage County TEA Party since July of 2009. He and his wife Nanette have owned a small communications business in Kent, OH for nearly 25 years. He also developed and ran the highly successful We the People Convention, which has been held in Columbus the past two years. Recently, Tom has been a sought-after speaker, having been interviewed on state and national radio and television because of his role in standing up to the IRS’s targeting of conservative and TEA party organizations during the 2012 election. Tom was the first person nationally to refuse to comply with this over-reaching encroachment.
