Who IS Thomas Lessman?


  I'm a life-long Shawnee County resident who was born in Topeka in 1977.  Professionally I'm an Information & Computer Specialist who contracts through Spherion.  My work experience ranges from farming and landscaping to construction, clerical, and computers.

  From 1983 I attended Tecumseh North Elementary, then Shawnee Heights where I graduated in 1996.  I have a high level of respect for the teachers and administrators of USD 450, and they earned it.


  I became a Father at age 16.  It wasn't easy finishing school as a young single father, especially while working after school as a Janitor to pay child $upport.  With help from my mother I succeeded, and I learned valuable lessons that helped shape who I am today.


  Life has taught me the importance of being actively involved in our community.  We make it what it is by participating and leading.  If we fail to get involved, or decide to move away, we all suffer.

What have I been doing?


  * As a Father since age 16, I know the struggles that families and single parents face.  My experiences have shown me that the government usually creates more problems for families than it solves.  The solution is to KEEP GOVERNMENT OUT of families!


  * As Chairman of the Million Dads March Network, I've helped create a worldwide network of advocates & activists dedicated to reforming the Family Law System.
   See www.MillionDadsMarch.org for more information.


  * As President of ACFC-KS I've continued the work of prominent Kansans by fighting for the rights of citizens and families.
