Tom Dingwall

Meet The Candidate

Tom was born and raised in Durham region. He and his wife Arlene have been married 21 years. They’re the proud parents of two teenage boys, who they hope will make the same choice they did – to live and work in Durham region.

Tom joined the police department straight out of high school when he was 18 years old. Since then, Tom has worked in some of the most difficult and stressful areas of police work, including homicide, sexual assault, and child abuse. Before taking leave to run for Regional Chair, Tom was assigned to the Professional Standards Unit where he investigated allegations of police misconduct.

Tom is also a real-estate agent and is acutely aware of the challenges of affordability for first-time home buyers.

In 2018 Tom took a leave of absence from policing to run for Durham Regional Chair. New to politics, Tom was driven by a desire to address long-standing issues he'd witnessed in his career - including a need to address mental health issues, under staffing of front-line services, and waste and mismanagement in government.

Despite being dismissed by many as a novice, Tom's relentless work ethic and daily canvassing earned him several major endorsements, and he came in a respectable second-place, despite being massively out-spent by two of his major opponents.

Never before has it been more obvious that we need people of integrity to stand up for what's right.

I’ve lived in Durham Region my entire life and raised my family... Read Bio
