Statement on 2016 Donation
Tom Hoch is a proud member of the DFL party and has been for his entire life. He has donated both his time and financial resources to numerous progressive causes including Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Al Franken, Mark Dayton, the DFL Party, and Planned Parenthood. In 2016, Tom participated in an event with other members of Minnesota Citizens for the Arts, while president and CEO of Hennepin Theatre Trust. At this event, he gave $500 to the House Republican Caucus. Support for the arts in Minnesota should not be a partisan issue. He’s proud to say that 98% of his political contributions have gone to Democratic candidates and progressive causes.
