My name is Fred Thomas, and I am running for City Council because I believe my real world business experience and my passion for our city can make a real difference.
Our City faces tough financial challenges in the coming years. I believe I bring the vision and leadership skills necessary to make a real difference.
I am prepared to work hard, be engaged at all levels, and be a representative for each and every member of our community.
My priorities for our City include:
• Public Safety will always be my number one priority. I believe it is a key ingredient to our quality of life here in Simi Valley.
• Balancing our budget while maintaining the quality of our cities services.
• Support and promote the businesses in our community, and develop a plan to provide economic growth for our future.
• I believe our City Council should operate with complete transparency, and I will always make myself available to meet with and listen to the concerns of our community.
• Building for the future while keeping the small town feel that sets us apart from our neighboring communities.
I am proud to be an active member of our community. I believe the truest form of service to ones community is through volunteering.
• Currently serving my 19th year on the Board of Directors of the Boys & Girls Club of Simi Valley, including 4 years as Chairman.
