His other civic contributions include helping sparked downtown's renaissance by being the first president of the Gaslamp association and chair of the task force that led to the development of San Diego (Qualcomm) Stadium. He was named Mr. San Diego in 2014.  Tom published his memoir, “Rabbit on a Bumpy Road," this past year.
