Tom Driscoll started with NFU as a government relations representative in August 2014. As the director of the NFU Foundation and of the organization’s conservation policy, Tom works to ensure family farmers, beginning farmers and youth involved in the organization have the educational resources they need to succeed through market and environmental changes. He also represents their interests on energy, climate and environmental issues.
Before joining NFU, Driscoll managed the agriculture news clips service AgToGo, wrote articles for the Agri-Pulse weekly newsletter, and helped nonprofits find and apply to U.S. Department of Agriculture grant programs. He has also worked for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Congressman Tim Ryan, and boutique government relations firm Strategies 360.
Having grown up in a rural community in Northeast Ohio, Tom is very excited to be working to advance family agriculture. A licensed attorney in New York and the District of Columbia, he graduated from Saint Peter’s University with a Bachelor of Arts in English and a Juris Doctor from the University of Toledo College of Law.
Tom and his wife Brittany Meyer live in Northwest D.C. They love bicycling and rode across Brittany’s home state in the 2011 Register’s Annual Bicycle Ride Across Iowa.
