While some campaigns spend thousands of dollars using fish fries and cookouts to engage voters, Commissioner Thomas is taking a different approach.
Commissioner Thomas is using his own personal funds to give cars away to the needy. Commissioner Thomas grew up in a home with one car. He remembers waiting for his father to return home so that he could go to his little league baseball game.
