"I was born and raised in District 29. I only left to attend graduate school at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy, returning afterward as a pharmacist intent on serving my community in the retail pharmacy setting. I left the industry in 2011 when I realized how bad the opioid problem had become in the area, as it had all over the country. I became more involved in local government as President of St. Mary's County’s Commission on the Environment while working for a local, independently-owned restaurant, and I believe that my experience with local government and small business along with my background in the field of pharmacy provide a unique perspective to address some of the pressing needs of the area I call home."
Thomas is interested in working on the opioid epidemic, making education a top priority and working on environmental issues, including the establishment of a composting facility for Southern Maryland, and universal background checks before buying a firearm.
