My name is Shawn Thomas, and I'm running for the Board of Finance for the town of Marlborough.

I am 36 years old, and I moved to town five years ago with my wife and son, who is part of the graduating class of 2021 from RHAM high school.

I am running for a position on the Board of Finance. In our family, we believe in giving back to our community and helping others whenever possible. I feel the need to use my abilities to continue moving our town into financial prosperity.

Over the last 20 years of my work career, I have worked my way up from employee to district manager. For five years of that time, I was responsible for accounts payable and receivable for a fortune 100 company. During this period, I was part of a management group who was able to receive a green audit on our facility.
