Meet Casey Thomas
As Mayor Pro Tem for the city of Dallas, Casey serves as the chair of the Human and Social Needs Committee, where he oversees the city's Office of Homeless Solutions, Office of Community Care, and the Office of Senior Services. He also serves on the Housing and Economic Development Committee. In this role, he makes recommendations on millions of dollars worth of economic development projects throughout the city of Dallas, especially southern Dallas. He has recommended funding on such projects as the Red Bird area redevelopment project, the Square 67 Shopping Center Revitalization Project, and has brought new businesses to District 3 (Home Depot and HD Supply), which will bring 800 permanent jobs and 200 permanent jobs, respectively.
He is a strong advocate for the residents of District 3, and has recently established a District 3 Grocery Store Task Force, to address the long-time challenge of bringing a quality, full-service grocery store to the district.
