Thomas R. Carper Wiki/Bio
Senator Tom Carper was born in West Virginia and raised in Virginia. He attended The Ohio State University on a Navy R.O.T.C. scholarship and graduated with a B.A. in economics in 1968. He went on to spend five years as a navy flight officer, three tours of duty in Southeast Asia during the Vietnam War, and 23 years of military service in the Naval Reserve as a P-3 aircraft mission commander before retiring with the rank of captain in 1991. With the war in Southeast Asia winding down, Tom Carper relocated to Delaware in 1973 to pursue his M.B.A. at the University of Delaware. He and his 30-year-old wife, Martha, now live in Wilmington and are the joyful parents of two sons. Senator Carper takes an Amtrak train from Wilmington to Washington every day.
At the age of 29, he was elected to the first of three terms as Delaware’s state treasurer in 1976, at a time when the state of Delaware had the poorest credit rating of any state in the country. He ran for – and was elected – to Delaware’s at-large seat in the United States House of Representatives six years later, with his credit rating restored to a respectable “AA.”
Senator Carper went on to spend five terms in Congress as a results-oriented moderate on the House Financial Services Committee and the Merchant Marine and Fisheries Committee, which is now part of the House Committee on Natural Resources. In 1991, then-Congressman Carper led a bipartisan congressional delegation of six Vietnam veterans back to Southeast Asia to hunt for American servicemen whose bodies had never been found and were labelled as MIAs. During that tour, the group met with Do Muoi, the new Vietnamese General Secretary, and helped build the framework for repairing US-Vietnamese relations.
In 1992, Tom Carper was elected as the 78th governor of Delaware, a position he held for two terms. As governor, he pushed a common-sense programme that resulted in eight balanced budgets, seven years of tax cuts, and significant job growth. Governor Carper oversaw efforts to improve Delaware’s “rainy day” fund and raise the state’s credit rating to “AAA” for the first time in state history, as well as reforming the state’s education system and implementing welfare reform policies in Delaware and across the country.
Tom Carper was voted by his colleagues to serve as vice-chairman, then chairman, of the National Governors’ Association during his second term as governor (NGA). He led the NGA’s ‘Center for Best Practices,’ which focused on identifying and implementing innovative solutions to policy difficulties faced by governors around the country, after leaving his position as chairman. He was a member of Amtrak’s board of directors from 1994 to 1998, and later served as founding vice-chairman of the American Legacy Foundation to prevent teenage smoking and vice-chairman of Jobs for America’s Graduates, a national non-profit dedicated to lowering high school dropout rates.
Governor Carper stood down two weeks early on Jan. 3, 2001, to become Delaware’s junior senator. He was reelected in 2006, and with his reelection in November 2012, he became Delaware’s 13th state-wide elected official. Senator Tom Carper became Delaware’s senior senator after Joe Biden stepped down to become Vice President in January 2009.
Senator Carper has spent his time in the United States Senate working to reform our health-care system, improve our environment, and ensure that federal programmes are handled properly and effectively. Senator Carper worked on the Affordable Care Act as a member of the Senate Finance Committee, focusing on ways to improve our health-care system by lowering costs, improving outcomes, and providing consumers with the tools and resources they need to achieve greater health and wellbeing. Senator Carper campaigned for measures on workplace wellness and menu labelling to be included in the health-care reform bill, and he continues to be a leader in ensuring that the Affordable Care Act is implemented properly.
Senator Carper, the top Democrat on the Environment and Public Works Committee and the committee’s ranking member in the 117th Congress, leads the fight to safeguard our environment and clean up our air. Senator Carper successfully defended common sense clean air rules against foolish attempts to abolish them during his time on the committee, and he continues to press for genuine protections that limit carbon emissions, control cross-state air pollution, and aid in the fight against climate change. With Sen. George Voinovich (R-Ohio), he spearheaded the charge to pass the Diesel Emissions Reduction Act, which has helped save lives and improve public health by cleaning up millions of old, polluting diesel engines. Senator Carper also aided in the negotiation of a deal that resulted in the most stringent fuel economy rules in a generation, saving Americans billions of dollars at the pump.
