First Time Candidate Turns to NMC for Website

Buncombe County's Thomas introduces himself through personalized campaign site

Research Triangle Park, N.C.-New Media Campaigns, an innovator in providing Web development tools and Internet-based marketing solutions to enhance the work of political campaigns, non-profits and businesses, is pleased to announce the launch of a Web site for North Carolina Rep. Charles Thomas. Thomas, who has lived in Buncombe County since 1988, began representing it, the state's 116th Congressional District, upon his 2006 election to the General Assembly.

A graduate of Wofford College who provided extensive military service to the United States for more than a decade, before his honorable discharge in summer 2005, Thomas also served with Merrill Lynch as an assistant vice president before beginning his own company, Thomas Wealth Management. Due to his work as a pilot in the U.S. Army, Thomas holds a passion for aviation that led him to work to save Asheville Regional Airport's flight school from folding under the weight of financial burdens. The school he rescued has become the region's only FAA certificated flight school and the state's only aviation school that offers Sallie Mae student financing to career-oriented applicants.

As a new addition to the General Assembly, Thomas sought visibility to introduce voters and constituents to his plans for better schools, increased tax relief and more affordable healthcare. He found this visibility through a Web site designed by New Media Campaigns.

"Although he may be new to the House of Representatives, Charles Thomas has already demonstrated a dedication to serving Buncombe County," said New Media Campaigns partner Joel Sutherland. "We look forward to making his Web site a vivid reflection of this dedication."

New Media Campaigns offers leading and groundbreaking technology to help clients like Thomas transform basic HTML Web sites into unique platforms of cost-effective marketing designed to better reach voters and constituents. The company's pioneering Web-based software gives clients the tools necessary for every phase of an online marketing campaign, from managing content to creating specialized blogs or e-mail operations.
