How we can build a better city together!
I cannot do it alone, and I will need your support when I am mayor. So get involved. I will ask citizens to volunteer to form resident-led panels advising our city officials and city-sponsored committees.
We can improve our communication skills with city officials, employees, residents, and business owners. We can make doing business with the City more straightforward and more enjoyable.
We can save the remainder of our historic area and make it a place people want to visit.
Building a Better Powder Springs Together
About Larry W. Thomas
Larry retired as a Captain from the U.S. Army in 2000 after almost 23 years of service. During his career, he was always looking for ways to save U.S. taxpayer’s money and to prevent fraud.
During his first eight years, he was an airplane mechanic and inspector with several Army Intelligence units. Based on his test scores, he was selected for duty with Army Intelligence before contracting with the Army. During this time, he began to learn about saving taxpayer money by finding innovative ways to reduce costs. He left active duty and entered the Army Reserve system in 1996 while attending college and being part of the Army ROTC program. He re-entered the Army as a Second Lieutenant in 1998, where he immediately positively impacted his unit’s readiness. He always operates within his given budget and finds ways to save money and prevent fraud, waste, and abuse. During his final assignment, he managed the largest GSA fleet of vehicles in the Southeast and reduced costs by finding and stopping abuse and changing procedures to minimize vehicle damage.
