Councilmember Tom Griffin

Tom Griffin settled in Newcastle long before the City was officially incorporated. He’s called this community home since November 1978, choosing Newcastle after he found the larger, newer home he was seeking. Tom, now in his first term on the Newcastle City Council, was elected for a four-year term starting in 2020.

Tom is a Certified Public Accountant who has experience in budgeting and all phases of accounting. He’s worked in CPA firms and in private industries where he managed the accounting departments and served as CEO. He also taught accounting and income taxes at Renton Technical College. He keeps his CPA license current and does mostly tax accounting.

In his spare time, Tom enjoys hiking and fishing. You might find him salmon fishing, either in the Straits or on the ocean. He lives in Hazelwood with his wife Yvonne. They have two adult children, one who lives in Renton and the other in Salt Lake City.
