Thomas "Tom" Valeo
Tom is a values-based, effective, and bold leader in his community. As a lifelong Palm Beach County native and advocate, he is eager to use the skills he gained working in the Florida Legislature to advocate for underrepresented communities.
Tom served as the Chief Legislative Assistant to State Representative Matt Willhite and has a proven track record of effectiveness, helping to pass over 20 pieces of legislation and bringing over $40 million in appropriations to Palm Beach County. Working in the legislature helped Tom learn that real and meaningful change is possible. Most importantly, he learned people of all backgrounds are similar and want to live happy and healthy lives.
Tom is the first in his family to graduate from college. He currently works with the Palm Beach County School District as a substitute teacher and paraprofessional.
