His net worth is about $1.6 billion. He resides in San Francisco, CA. He is the founder and former co-senior manager of Farallon Capital (which deals with college endowments and foundations). Most importantly, he is now heavily involved in charity, politics and the environment. So much so that he launched a non-profit by the name of NextGen America, that supports preventing damage to the environment, transitioning to clean energy, healthcare, immigration and education. This, ladies and gentleman is Mr. Tom Steyer.
Recently Steyer made headlines when news surfaced that he spent well over $10 million out of his own pockets on a national TV ad campaign which called for the impeachment of President Donald Trump and urged congressional leaders to stop avoiding issues and take a stand. In the ad, Steyer says:
"A Republican Congress once impeached a president for far less. And today, people in Congress and his own administration know that this President is a clear and present danger who is mentally unstable and armed with nuclear weapons."
So far the one minute ads have been run on certain stations in New York and California and nationally as well on cable TV. For information on the campaign to impeach and to sign a petition you can visit NeedToImpeach.com. Make sure to also be on the lookout for Tom Steyer as he is contemplating making a bid in the 2018 congressional primary against CA Sen. Diane Feinstein.
