My name is Thomas Tarantella and I'm seeking the nomination of the Democratic Party for the 5th Congressional District of Pennsylvania.

Throughout those years we've have had three children and now five grandchildren. I had spent 22 years in the U.S. Army. During my tenure I was a member of the Rapid Deployment Force, a Paratrooper, and a Lite Fighter.
