— May 19, 2016
Excerpt from Lohud.com -- "Thomas, who took office in January, received an executive MBA in finance and leadership after attending the school for two years every other weekend. 'I think it's going to help me really speak to the economic problems of Mount Vernon and connect a network of disconnects,' Thomas said Tuesday. 'Mount Vernon has never had a clear relationship with its finances. It's always been a political football.'"
