James Thomas: Eagle Scout, Marine for House of Delegates

James Thomas credits his parents for teaching him a sense of duty and pride in our country. An Eagle Scout, he joined the Marines after 9/11. Thomas was sent to Iraq, where he conducted numerous search and recovery operations. In 2006, Thomas moved to Virginia and worked as a civilian for the federal government. Today he works in the private sector and resides in Fairfax Station with his wife, Caroline, and their family.

As a candidate for House of Delegates in Virginia’s 10th District, Thomas is motivated by a desire “to continue serving his community, assisting all Virginians to ensure a better life.” At his website, ThomasForVirginia.com, the candidate lays out his vision of reform.

  • Creating a Diverse & Dynamic Economy: “Creating a diverse and dynamic economy that lowers the cost of living and decreases the tax burden on families. That starts with eliminating the personal property tax on our vehicles, which will be the first bill that I will patron if elected.”
  • Restoring Academic Excellence: “Restoring focus on academic excellence; ensuring every student is valued and reaching their full potential; partner will our teachers to ensure they are equipped to provide the quality education that will prepare our children for bright futures.”
  • Increasing Public Safety: “We’ll eliminate the flow of fentanyl into our communities and schools. I will be dedicated to securing funding for a Task Force of law enforcement and community leaders dedicated to this task. And we’ll ensure that the Commonwealth is positioned to recruit the most qualified law enforcement officers to keep our communities safe, while investing in their continued training.”
  • Addressing Mental Health: “The COVID pandemic shed light on the conversation about mental health and many in our community are facing mental health challenges. We must expand the availability of mental health resources – making mental health support stigma-free, affordable, and accessible.”

“When I was 19 years old, the horrific events of September 11th happened,” Thomas recalls. “I left the comfort of college and enlisted in the Marine Corps to answer the call to service. Today our community faces a different set of challenges and, once again, I find myself in a position to answer another call to service.”
