Delegate Robert M. “Bob” Thomas, Jr. is a proud husband, father, small business owner, U.S. Marine Corps veteran, and citizen legislator representing the 28th District in the Virginia House of Delegates.

Bob was first elected as Delegate in November 2017 following the retirement of former Speaker Bill Howell. He serves on three committees in the House: Counties, Cities, and Towns, Transportation, and Science and Technology. Prior to taking office January 2018, he served six years on the Stafford County Board of Supervisors representing the George Washington District.

In Richmond, he is committed to representing our shared values, delivering results for his constituents, and making our community the best place to live, work, and raise a family.

Bob was born and raised in Sandusky, Ohio. Shortly after high school graduation, Bob felt a strong calling to serve his nation and joined the United States Marine Corps at age 18. He spent nearly four years stationed in Okinawa, Japan until he was transferred to Marine Corps Base Quantico in January of 2000. Bob and his young family loved the Fredericksburg area so much, they decided to call Stafford County home.

In 2006, after spending three years working for a large government contractor following active duty, Bob and a fellow Marine started their own company, Capriccio Software. As a small business owner, Bob has the unique perspective of knowing how it feels to have nearly thirty families depending on the success of a company.

Bob currently lives in Stafford with his wife, Christi, and their large family. Bob and his family are active members of Spotswood Baptist Church. He is a graduate of Excelsior College with a BS in Information Technology.
