Protecting senior citizens
Many of the seniors that live in the 86th district live on a fixed income. Thomas is very conscious of this and he fights to reduce costs that our seniors face.
He was proud to support Auto No-Fault reform, which would have reduced Michigan’s auto insurance rates that are currently the highest in the nation.
Thomas has heard from many seniors who were caught off guard when the state took away the Pension Tax Exemption. It takes decades to save for retirement, and it is not fair for seniors to have their expected income change right before they retire. That is why Thomas introduced legislation to change the phase in of the Pension Tax from 1946-1952 to 1950-1955.
Thomas held senior seminars in the 86th District to help raise awareness of potential scams and identity theft.
