Tony Fulton (born September 29, 1972) is a politician from the U.S. state of Nebraska. He represented a Lincoln district in the Nebraska Legislature from 2007 to 2013.

Born in Auburn, Nebraska, Fulton graduated from Auburn Senior High School in 1990. He attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL), where he studied engineering; before completing his degree, he took two years off to study philosophy through Kansas Newman University in Wichita, Kansas, and theology through Mount St. Mary's University in Emmitsburg, Maryland. He received a B.S. in mechanical engineering from UNL in 1997. [1] [2]

In 2003, Fulton founded Guardian Angels Homecare in Lincoln; the business provides in-home services to elderly people. [3]

In January 2007, Fulton was appointed by governor Dave Heineman to represent the 29th Legislative District, consisting of part of southern Lincoln, in the Nebraska Legislature. He replaced incumbent Mike Foley, who had been elected state auditor. He won election to the seat for a full term in 2008. [2] [4] [5] In 2012 Fulton was forced to retire from the legislature due to term limits, amid a dispute between the Secretary of State and the Attorney General as to whether Fulton's tenure after being appointed to the seat meant he had served the two term limit. [6]

He ran for State Treasurer in 2010, placing second in the Republican primary behind former state attorney general Don Stenberg. [7]

In 2016, he was appointed to the position of state tax commissioner by governor Pete Ricketts. [8]
