Pottsville Area School Board, 2009-Present

Thomas defeated the odds as he won as an non endorsed candidate of his party. He is the youngest member of the Pennsylvania Republican State Committee being elected at the age of 18.

In 2009, Thomas ousted current Pottsville Area School Board president, Jack Dolbin by over 400 votes. He was sworn into office in December. Throughout the course of his campaign, Thomas pledged to hold the line on taxes while promising to increase communication between teachers, students, parents, and the board of education. Within a year into his term of office, Thomas was one of the leading advocates for a school dress code. He met with parents and students in efforts to develop a fair dress code for all parties involved. The dress code was passed a month later.

On May 16, 2012, Thomas was elected unanimously as the Treasurer of the Pottsville Area School district.

In December 2013, he announced that he would not be seeking another term in office. During is tenure, the board has never voted to increase taxes.

    I am aware of the damp souls of housemaids
    Sprouting despondently at area gates.

    And Mabbie thought life was heaven.
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)
