April Thanos is what Gulfport needs now. She moved to Gulfport for the same reasons many of us did. This is an inclusive, welcoming, walkable, charming town. We need an experienced voice on City Council to keep Gulfport the town we love and enjoy. April is ready to be the person to implement what residents of our community want for the future.
April Thanos spent the majority of her professional career working for the world’s largest shipping company in Seattle and overseas. She managed multi-million dollar budgets and supervised employees, all while solving problems and improving efficiency. April has been working with the Sierra Club locally to improve Gulfport’s use of sustainable/renewable energy.
During her career, she also worked for Great Seattle Business Association, the largest LGBTQ and allied Chamber of Commerce in the United States, helping market the LGBTQ and small business community. Promoting diversity and inclusion in the community is experience she brings to Gulfport.
April was active in her neighborhood community organization for ten years. With her background, she has the experience to create good paying jobs, improve oversight and remove excessive regulation. She wants to tackle the issues we are concerned about, infrastructure, parking, sewage, zoning, affordable housing, and a healthy and safe environment. We need another woman’s voice on the Council to add balance and diversity. We need the voice of April Thanos on our City Council.
April Thanos will proudly stand up and fight for everyone in our community. She wants more town hall meetings to discuss the problems and issues we have, any new proposals, and a greater transparency so we all have input and a voice. April Thanos is a leader who will invest in smart growth and protect what we love most about Gulfport.
