Welcome to Rask.com - the home on the web for Thomas ("Tom") Rask. I've chosen to limit my professional activities to:
My resume can be found here.
In the personal arena, I'm also a government accountability advocate. Through my profession, I learned a lot about tourism promotion funded by the State of Florida. I'm on record in 2011 in Tallahassee calling out the tremendous waste, corruption and abuse in this area before it became popular to do so in 2016.
At the local level, I was instrumental in defeating the 2014 Pinellas County sales tax hike to fund light rail. The corrupt measure was defeated with 62% NO at the ballot box. I was also the first peron to publicly point out why the 2018 Hillsborough County sales tax hike was illegal. The Florida Supreme Court agreed with teh argument, invalidating the tax hike that would have generated $16 billion over 30 years.
A society can only prosper if good public policy decisions are made and resources are not wasted. In that regard, I am committed to holding elected and appointed officials accountable.
