Thomas Hiram Andrews (born March 22, 1953) is a non-profit executive, and a former Democratic Party politician from Maine, USA.

A 1976 graduate of Bowdoin College and alumnus of the Alpha Rho Upsilon fraternity, Andrews served in the Maine House of Representatives (1983–1985) and Maine State Senate (1985–1990) before being elected to two terms in the U.S. House of Representatives.

In his first Congressional election, Andrews defeated the former Congressman Dave Emery in the race to succeed Democrat Joe Brennan. In his only re-election, Andrews soundly defeated Linda Bean, a descendant of L. L. Bean.

In 1994, he did not run for re-election to the House but declared his candidacy for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by the retiring Democrat George J. Mitchell, then the Senate Majority Leader. Andrews lost the Senate election to his 2nd District colleague, Republican Olympia Snowe, by a wide margin.

Andrews served as National Director of Win Without War.[1][2] He has served on the boards of Council for a Livable World's PeacePAC (as Chairman), and the U.S. foreign policy reform group Just Foreign Policy.[3]

In 2016, he became the CEO of the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee.[4]
