Support Thomas for state House seat

The Chilkoot Indian Association (CIA) is the federally recognized sovereign Indian tribe for Haines, Alaska. The tribe received a legislative grant to construct our tribal community services center. This tribal community services center will allow the Chilkoot Indian Association to deliver services to all membership.

Without the tireless hard work of Rep. William (Bill) Thomas our tribal community services center would be still a dream. Mr. Thomas is a former tribal president of the CIA and a former Haines Borough Assembly member. His many years of experience in the public sector have given him a firsthand knowledge of the issues and problems facing all of the people within his district. Mr. Thomas has extensive experience in the private sector such as a gillnetter, longshoreman, and logger to name a few. Mr. Thomas has worked very hard on behalf of everyone in his district, Southeast Alaska and the entire State of Alaska. Please vote for William (Bill) Thomas for House District 34.
