Dave Thomas

Bloomfield Township's BEST CHOICE FOR Supervisor

To those that supported and voted for me,


I cannot thank you enough for your love and support during the past 4 months.  Many of you either donated your time, money, or support in other ways to help challenge Leo Savoie for Supervisor.


Unfortunately, I lost this epic David versus Goliath match by a mere 452 votes. Out spent $140,000 to $8,000 I almost pulled off the impossible.


One thing I learned as I knocked on the many doors is that the compassion and intellect of our community is beyond compare.  Many of you invited me into your homes and gave me a cool drink of water or a brief respite from the  extreme heat and humidity that had gripped our area for most of June and July. To you folks, I am eternally grateful for your kindness.


Others kept encouraging me to continue the fight when I was feeling like we were losing ground.  Again, thank you for keeping me going.


To all of you thank you just isn't enough to tell you how much I appreciate everything you did for me.  But there are no other words.


So thank you one and all. It was a wonderful experience.

Sewer & Water overcharges have resulted in a Class Action Lawsuit against Bloomfield Township. The suit claims Sewer & Water over charges of:
$11,100,000 or $825/customer
Additional claims in the suit against the Township are:
- Unjust enrichment
- Violation of the Headlee Amendment
- Erroneous accouting practices
- Adding public safety charges to sewer and water customers
- Township's own water & sewer charges added to the  sewer & water customer's bills

The sale of a Fire Truck. The mismanagement saga continues.  Was it for a good cause or did the taxpayers lose money for political gain? Story coming soon!

Would love to post the actual article but the newspaper never put the article on their website.

Citizens can send their complaints about the abuse of their privacy by this blatant abuse of power for self enrichment by Leo Savoie and Janet Roncelli to Richard Cunningham in the State's Attorney Generals office:

Violation of Township Ordinances By Savoie and Kepes

XI'm Dave Thomas and I am committed to making your voice heard on Bloomfield Township issues. I am running for Supervisor because, like you, I want to play an active role in making our community a safer, better place to raise our children, run our businesses, and forge a future filled with unlimited promise.  To do this we must bring a transparent government that no longer fleeces its citizens through unjust water and sewer rates, no bid contracts, and property taxes.

I am running for office because I can no longer sit in the Trustee meetings and and watch the present Supervisor and the Trustees award one no bid contract after another, where citizens are told by the Supervisor they cannot ask questions about how their tax dollars are being spent, the rejection of purchasing procedures requiring competitive bids for professional services, the transfer of funds over the objections of the citizens, and citizens' petitions calling for a forensic audit the water department are ignored.

The Leo Savoie "Friends and Family" purchasing policies must be stopped!


A great government is one that protects its citizens' rights, welcomes their participation, provides total financial transparency, shows respect for its residents, and their tax dollars.

​ Help me make our Township great again.  


Vote Dave Thomas for Supervisor.


Together, we can make a meaningful difference -- for our families and for our community.  

Class action status court decision on the case is scheduled for August 21, 2016

Three questions for Mr. Savoie:

  1. How can it be a clerical error when you submitted a FOIA of the information?
  2. How can it be a clerical error when the clerk refused the same information to a citizen because of privacy issues?
  3. How can it not be a conspiracy when the clerk also benefited from the violation of our privacy and the sending of the email?

This isn't leadership.  

This is arrogance

towards the citizens.

After getting complaints about the large illegally mounted signs (over 5 feet above the ground) on Telegraph near Maple Rd. in the July 11 Trustee Meeting, Neal Barnett decided to join with Leo Savoie's and Brian Kepes' total contempt of our ordinances and laws and illegally mounted his own political campaign signs.
