Bill Thomas files for re-election

Former Haines Rep. Bill Thomas has filed a letter of intent to run for state office in 2014, KTOO reports.

Thomas, a Republican, was defeated in 2012 by Sitka Democrat Jonathan Kreiss-Tompkins. Thomas served eight years in the House and served as co-chair of the House Finance Committee.

Thomas did not specify in the filing which office he will run for, but he is eligible to run for either Rep. Beth Kerttula’s House seat or Sen. Dennis Egan’s Senate seat. Both Juneau lawmakers have filed letters of intent to run in 2014, however, Kerttula did not specify in her filing which office she will seek.

Filing a letter of intent allows a candidate to fundraise for their campaign.
