Claudia Thomas

Sanford City Commission, District 4

Claudia will be the first out LGBTQ+ person elected to the Sanford City Commission!


Claudia’s career began in County Government, where she was a Personnel Officer for Brevard County, FL. She then spent 30 years with Lockheed Martin, retiring as a Sr Staff Systems Integration Analyst.
Since retiring she has been involved in numerous volunteer activities, including serving on boards, working as a task lead on multiple Habitat for Humanity builds, and performing in musical theatre.

Claudia is driven by her commitment to social change and finding enthusiasm in anything she pursues. She has a hunger to embrace new learning opportunities and is driven to come full circle in her career by returning to a government role.

Claudia, her wife Christa and their pups chose Sanford as their home in 2021, and they are ready now to help influence how Sanford grows. Claudia is enthused about putting her experience to use for this vibrant community!
