Thomas Duke

Master of Public Administration (MPA)

I have worked in the outdoor recreation, fine dining, and manufacturing industries, amassing varied and fulfilling experiences in every one. I recently returned to Athens to pursue an MPA with the goal of entering local government to improve city efficiency and ecologically-friendly sustainability through the implementation of improved and reasoned policy. I am a semi-professional bike racer and want to see the green space, wide-open country, and temperate climate I enjoy in the 2010’s exist in the 2100’s– and I believe that starts with local government.
