Monday - June 15, 2015
Tom Ufert “is an inspirational voice in our troubled times.” He received his bachelor of arts in political science and history as a scholarship recipient from Centenary College of Louisiana. Tom is a former Rotary International graduate Fellow who attended Australian National University in Canberra, ACT, specializing in East Asian political affairs and was a White House Fellow nominee. He is a former Lyndon Baines Johnson Congressional Intern and constituency aid for two former United States Members of Congress.
His past services for 11 political campaigns on both sides of the aisle were highly valued by former Louisiana Governor Charles “Buddy” Roemer, Henson Moore the former assistant chief of staff to U.S. Vice President George H.W. Bush, and the
recently retired U.S. Trade Ambassador, Ron Kirk.
At age 23 he was the youngest artistic Board Chairman in the United States as head of the Shreveport Summer Music Festival. Mr. Ufert has served as a member of two other 501(c) three charity boards including his beloved fraternity Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia as well as the community advisory board for his former rehabilitation hospital.
Over the years he has acquired extensive customer service experience in the food and beverage, hotel, insurance, home security, and pharmaceutical industries.

In recent years he has worked tirelessly as a volunteer fundraiser for numerous AIDS charities in his community and served briefly as the community affairs liaison for Legacy Founders Cottage.
Tom Ufert, a native of Louisiana, now resides in Texas. He is an Amazon Best Selling Author for his second book On The Roll Again, his first book, Adversity Builds Character received high acclaim with numerous 5 Star reviews, as has his newest release Political Craps. In fact all three books and several of his essay booklets have garnered distinction as Amazon’s Top 20 Best Sellers. Perhaps Mr. Ufert’s greatest claim to fame is that every book he sells contributes directly to charity through his charitable book entity Stand Strong For Others. Interested listeners can hear the distinguished author’s monthly broadcast, Tom’s Take, about politics and current events (http://www.apribroadcasting.org/tom-ufert-live.html).
My name is Tom Ufert. American hero Nathan Hale is quoted as having written…
“I wish to be useful, and every kind of service necessary to the public good becomes honorable by being necessary. If the exigencies of my country demand a peculiar service, its claim to perform that service are imperious.”
The exigencies of America of today—division, inequality, fear, and a lack of vision demand a peculiar service. They demand that everyday Americans fulfill the noble challenge of President John F. Kennedy—"My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country." I, like so many of my countrymen, want to be useful and do what I can for America. Exactly because the kind of service that President Kennedy extolled us all to perform is indeed necessary to the public good and now more than ever those exigencies afflicting our country are so imperious I claim the right to perform the service of running for President of the United States. However, unlike every one of the 350 other declared candidates running for the White House, when this campaign wins I’ll refuse to accept the office. I don’t want it.
