Tom Tiffany is a small business owner. He has owned and operated Wisconsin River Cruises, currently based in Rhinelander, since 1991.He has been married to his wife, Chris, for 16 years. They have three daughters.  Tom ran for the 12th Senate District in 2004 and 2008, where he was narrowly defeated by Holperin (51%-49%).  He was elected to the State Assembly in 2010 and served as the vice chair of the Assembly Committee  on Forestry.

Important legislation authored by Tiffany this past session included administrative rule reforms that revamped the administrative rule process, iron ore mining legislation, one of Tiffany’s top legislative priorities, which hoped to create a separate class of mining legislation, a deer hunter heritage bill which brought back the traditional deer hunting season framework, and a non-conformity bill allowed homeowners with non-conforming structures to repair and maintain the structure regardless of its value.

While important reforms were enacted in the 100th session of the Wisconsin legislature, Tiffany looks forward to pursuing additional reforms in the senate to move Wisconsin forward.
