Christian Talk 1160 AM Oct. 22, 2016

tomzcatopic3Our guest today is Tom Zawistowski

Tom Zawistowski, is the CEO and Founder, with his wife Nanette, of TRZ Communications, a 32 year old technology company based in Akron, Ohio.  He holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communications from Edinboro University in Edinboro, PA and a Masters of Arts in Sport Administration from Kent State University, in Kent, OH.  He did doctoral work toward a PhD in Education Administration at both Kent State and the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, VA.

wtpclogosmIn 2009 he was one of the founders of the Portage County TEA Party, of which he became the Executive Director in 2010, a position he still holds.  Under his leadership, the Portage County TEA Party has become one of the most successful liberty groups in Ohio with over 2,600 current members.

In 2011, Tom was nominated by liberty group leaders around the state to a group that was challenged with the task of putting on the first ever state convention for liberty minded citizens.  He and his committee, which included his wife Nanette, pulled together in less than six months the highly acclaimed “We the People” Convention which was held at the Columbus Convention Center during the 4th of July weekend in 2011. The event was attended by over 1,000 Patriots and feature over 40 breakout sessions and speakers such as Herman Cain, Dick Morris, John Fund and Jenny Beth Martin.  The event has taken place annually ever since.

Shortly after the first Convention, in July of 2011, Tom was asked to become, and accepted the position of being, the second President in the History of the Ohio Liberty Council, a state-wide organization that coordinates the efforts of the 233 local liberty groups in Ohio.  As President, Tom played a constructive role in the passage of State Issue 3, the Ohio Health Care Amendment, in 2011 and in support of State Issue 2 the Workplace Freedom Amendment. He has been recognized as one of the top liberty group leaders in the nation and successfully co-lead an effort to defend the legal right of Liberty groups across the nation to be granted 501(c) 4 tax exempt status by the IRS.  He has worked closely with nearly all of the major national conservative organization as well as conservative groups within Ohio. Zawistowski stepped down from the President’s position on January 31, 2013.

In 2012, Tom led an effort by Ohio’s liberty groups to win the Republican Primary for Rick Santorum over Mitt Romney. Santorum lost by 1%, only 12,251 votes (460,831-448,580), despite being outspent 20-1 and mostly because of a false Republican Establishment placed story that ran two days before the election in Ohio newspapers. Despite the setback, Tom convinced the Ohio Liberty movement that we needed to work to win Ohio for Romney because 4 more years under Obama would be devastating. Tom literally talked with the Romney State Director and his staff nearly every day, and his effort resulted in 87% of all attendees at Romney Rallies in Ohio being TEA Party Supporters, TEA Party Supporters making 80% of the phone calls and knocking on 80% of the doors for the Romney campaign according to a post election study by the Bliss Institute. Romney lost to Obama by 3% in Ohio (166,277 votes out of 5,632,423 cast) not because of a lack of effort or effectiveness by the TEA Party Movement in Ohio, but because of the total lack of respect by the Romney national campaign managers for the intelligence and feedback provided by the grassroots volunteers in the state. The TEA Party did not lose Ohio for Romney, they gave Romney a real chance of winning despite their campaign doing everything possible to lose the state.

In the spring of 2013, Zawistowski became a focal point of the newly discovered IRS “Targeting” scandal after having told the IRS in 2012, as President of the OLC and Executive Director of the Portage County TEA Party, that his organizations would not comply with the demands for information by the IRS in exchange for getting tax exempt status.  Zawistowski appeared on FoxNews numerous times and was interviewed by nearly every major newspaper, TV network and radio network in the country over the past two years about the inappropriate actions of the IRS.

Zawistowski is also the President of the Ohio Citizens PAC, which he used in 2014 to support primary candidates in 68 statewide races for Ohio House and Senate and for State Central Committee. These efforts resulted in electing five new conservative members to the Ohio House of Representatives and 12 Republican State Central Committee member along with dozens of local officials and hundreds of County Central Committee members in the 2014 general election.

In August of 2013 he started a radio show called “TEA Party Talk with Tom Z” which airs at 9:00 AM on Saturday mornings on WHLO 640 AM in Arkon and is streamed live on Wednesday mornings at 10:30 AM at www.TEAPartyTalkwithTomZ.com. Zawistowski has his articles published by various conservative websites on a regular basis and is a guest on numerous TV and radio shows around the country including being a guest on FoxNews during the IRS Targeting Investigation.
