REISDORF, Thomas. (Dubuque, IA, July 3, 1950-- ). A graduate of WAHLERT CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL, Reisdorf served in the military from 1968 to 1972. He took the Civil Service exam and went to work for the U.S. Postal Service in 1973.

He worked with the Michael BLOUIN and Brent Appel congressional campaigns and became a shop steward in 1974 and vice president of the Letter Carriers Local in 1978. Reisdorf served as branch president of the union for three years and was a state officer beginning in 1996.

In the 1990s under President Bill Clinton some restrictions of the Hatch Act were lifted, giving Tom more opportunity to be involved in the Dubuque County Democrats. He joined the Central Committee in 1998 and became Campaigns and Candidates Chair in 2003. He helped restart DCD’s Hall of Fame in 2004 and served on the First District Central Committee beginning in 2006. He counted among his greatest achievements helping Bruce L. Braley win his seat in Congress in 2006 and serving as County Coordinator for Hillary Clinton for President.
