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.
