Montgomery Thomas Seeks Fourth Norfolk State Representative Seat

Bob Monty

Bob Montgomery Thomas submitted twice the number of necessary signatures as part of his drive to become Weymouth’s next state representative. He is seeking the Fourth Norfolk District seat as a Non-Party candidate – because he feels that the Party system is broken.

Montgomery Thomas is a retired design/build remodeler who specialized in kitchen and bath renovations and is a former machinist, auto body technician and automotive specialist; what the Democrats refer to as a “working man”.

A 23-year fixture in town, Bob has been widely vocal on issues that affect quality of life and other issues in Weymouth.  He was a three-term Town Meeting member and a five-year member of the Weymouth Bylaw Review Committee; serving as chairman for two years. He was a leading organizer and Charter President (re-elected twice) of the Weymouth Lions Club.
