Thanks for stopping by. TomPloszaj.com is an interactive site with new postings.

Tom Ploszaj lives in Center Harbor with his wife Marta until her unexpected passing in May 2022.   They have four children and three grandchildren. Marta Voight...

Tom is retired having over 15 years as a foundry and machining Union Member,  17 years as an analytical scientist with a Chemical Engineering degree, and an Emergency Medical Technician volunteer of 42 years in EMS as a first responder with 40 years as an EMT.  He was an EMT-I and an emergency dispatcher in addition to a member of his employer's medical and safety teams, Civil Air Patrol,  Lions Club,  town communication committee, volunteer fire department, Cemetery Trustee, and Planning Board (alt).

Tom has enjoyed the farm life and animal husbandry growing up adjacent to the family farm.  As a youth, he worked alongside his father, uncles, and neighbors on the farm,  in construction and family businesses, and the mechanical trades.  Tom has learned as a re-purposer how to fix items, reuse them, and offer items of need to others.   Those who know Tom recognize he can see a use for what others discard as broken. Tom married and bought a small five-acre farm raising dairy goats, hogs, fowl, and rabbits.   At present, he tends to their pets and rescued chickens.  Tom has been a lifelong motorcyclist enjoying classic autos, and snowmobiles including camping, shooting, and extended backpacking.

Tom looks forward to hearing from residents of Center Harbor and New Hampton of what is expected from their representatives and asks voters to contact him as soon as an issue or concern is recognized so he can best serve the district by working together on topics from the beginning.

As an analytic research scientist, Tom is the best candidate to represent the district by focusing on data, needs, and funding to maintain the social services and improvement in our infrastructure while addressing the state debt from the COVID-19 shutdown. Tom, a former UAW union member of 15 years, assistant manager of family businesses, and
salaried scientist in both research and supervision of union associates has the experience and understanding of the many levels of employment.

Tom acknowledges the obligation that the constituent's issues and concerns be heard.
Tom pledges that he:
supports quality education
is against new taxes
support constitutional rights and representative government
represents Belknap Dist.1 and its residents first
supports an efficient social safety net
will attend all NH House votes
will run a positive campaign.

Belknap District 1 has the opportunity to elect Tom to represent them so their views and ideas can be heard. This election is a chance for the voter to decide if the district would be better served by one who represents the residents or one who represents a political party's national agenda.

Reach out and contact Tom to share your ideas and expectations.

I am honored to ask the residents of New Hampton and Center Harbor for their support for my candidacy in the September 13th Primary Election.

If a political classification is needed, I am best defined as a constitutional fiduciary in both my personal and public life with the belief that it is the resident's issues that a representative should be bringing to Concord.
I Do Not wish to be involved in any Political Party’s Rhetoric but to request that voters research, learn who the candidates are, where they stand on issues, and which would best represent the residents and our district, not the outside influences of the Political Parties.

I will interact with and make myself available to all residents, businesses, and NH organizations, Believe in Listening to all points of view,  Learn how best to keep the Lakes Region and New Hampshire as one of the highest-rated places to raise a family, while working towards continued improvements for our Residents and Businesses.

Robert Heinlein had expressed two of my beliefs nicely:
"Political tags such as Royalist, Communist, Democrat, Populist, Fascist, Liberal, Conservative, and so forth are never Basic Criteria. The Human Race divides Politically into Those who want People to be Controlled and Those Who have no such Desire".
"I never Learned From a Man who agreed with Me."

I retired from Uniroyal Specialty Chemicals-Compton Corp. as an analytic research scientist in FT-IR and microscopy spectroscopy having a chemical engineering degree.  My employment was in spectroscopy, gravimetric, chromatography, FT-IR, synthesis research, product development, work place efficiency, quality control, and supervising union associates.
Prior employments consists of a line operator, machine's set-up as a union member of United Auto Workers (UAW 626) with NDH-General Motors, an United Steelworkers (Local 2321) foundry worker with OZ Gedney, farmhand, grounds-keeper along with the operation of family businesses as an employee, purchaser/buyer, and assistant manager.

My work with family business owners, salaried associates, union employees, and supervisor of union employees along with working out of doors on construction sites, dairy, and hog farms provided me with a greater understanding of those interpersonal and professional skills needed in assisting others in order to accomplish goals be it dirty farm-work, sweaty job-sites, or in an air-conditioned office along side Ph.D.s.
I had been active in the community of providing over forty years of hands-on care to patients and their family as a volunteer ambulance EMT along as a volunteer fire personnel and emergency dispatcher in addition to being a Lions Club member.
I have served as a member of town's planning board, commission, and trustees.

I understand how data and business situations can be used in ways to bias decisions and beliefs.   I plan to work with others for an efficient legislature and continue our District's historical representation of refraining from the political rhetoric.

I am humbled by the condolences offered for Marta's recent passing. Our family is grateful to all who have reached out to us during this time.   We also enjoy gardening and our family's dog, cats, and chickens as pets. Having been an avid backpacker and motorcyclist, I enjoy outdoor recreation and animal husbandry.

I believe in the Creator and attempt to follow the teachings of the Bible and as an Volunteer Medical First Responder, I knew in assisting an expectant patient I had at least two lives to care for.

Thank you for visiting. Your issues, comments, and suggestions are always welcomed.
