Dr. Charlene Thomas announces bid for Third District State Committee Woman

Published 12:26 pm Tuesday, July 12, 2022

After teaching for almost four decades at Milligan College, Dr. Charlene Thomas is changing career directions by running for this very important office. She has lived in Washington and Unicoi counties, but she is now a Carter County resident. She earned an undergraduate degree from Milligan College, two Master’s degrees from East Tennessee State University, and a PhD from Virginia Tech. She is a member of Westminster Presbyterian Church in Johnson City where she serves as a biblical counselor and a co-teacher of a woman’s Bible study. A dedicated Republican, Charlene serves on the Executive Board of the Washington County Federated Republican Women, and she has worked for many candidates, including Bill Hagerty and Marsha Blackburn.
The State Executive Committee is the policy-making body of the Tennessee Republican Party that oversees the candidates on the Republican ballot and works with the local county Republican parties. District three includes Carter, Johnson, and Washington counties. Driven by the conviction that election integrity matters, Charlene desires to make sure that candidates placed on the Republican ballot are truly Republican. She also wants to work to maintain the conservative values that are the hallmark of the Republican party. Early voting begins July 15, and Election Day is August 4.
More information about Dr. Charlene Thomas can be found on her Facebook page or by calling (423-483-4665) or emailing her (cthomastn@gmail.com).
A morning coffee with Dr. Thomas was planned for this morning from 7:30 to 9 a.m. at the Coffee Company for the public to meet the candidate.
