Meet Tommy

Tommy and his family have been proud to call Allen home since 2004

Tommy is an Assistant Director within the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO)’s Defense Capabilities and Management team.  In this capacity, Tommy oversees multiple GAO teams that conduct non-partisan, fact-based, and objective assessments of national security matters.

While serving our country, Tommy has met with senior-level U.S. government officials across the world, including in Afghanistan and other countries, and briefed members of Congress and Congressional staffers. As a result of his teams’ assessments, Congress has written numerous provisions into law and the Department of Defense and other government agencies have taken action to improve management and operational matters.

Tommy holds a BBA (Finance), Certificate in International Business, and Certificate in National Security from Texas A&M University. He is also a graduate of the National Security Management program for senior executives from Syracuse University.

Tommy, along with his bride of 21 years, Holly, and their children have made Allen their home since 2004. Holly is a small business owner and author of the ebook, SPICE: A Guide to an Intimate Marriage. The Baril family attends St. Jude Catholic Church, their kids love their Allen ISD teachers, and they enjoy time together—whether it’s walking or biking on the trails, chasing each other on the neighborhood playgrounds, or enjoying family movie night.

A Strong History of Community Service

As you can see from the list on the right, Tommy has served the Allen community in many ways. Some of this service has been  in leadership roles for city organizations such as the Downtown Steering Committee Chair and Allen CDC (Community Development Corporation).  He has also served the community during times of crisis such as as an Allen Cares Covid team member and CERT (Community Emergency Response team) member.

And, Tommy has also worked to support children in the community as a Cub Scout Leader, Allen Sports Association Coach, Allen Eagle Escadrille Guard Father and High School Ministry Coordinator for his church.

Through this service, Tommy has met and worked with many Allen residents, and always seeks to hear their ideas, interests, and hopes for the future of our community.
