CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Pat Thomas has been elected to be the 71st chairman of American Trucking Associations.

The 55-year-old Thomas is the son of Craig Thomas, a former United States senator from Wyoming who served from 1995 to 2007.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1lqqsSv ) that he will be chairman for one year.

The Trucking Associations is the voice of trucking in America. Its main responsibilities include representing the trucking industry before Congress and any other agencies that have rule-making authority.

That means Thomas oversees the organization’s state legislative, regulatory and political activities for all 50 states.

Thomas will retain his job as senior vice president of state government affairs for UPS.

He is the first Wyoming native to be named chairman of the American Trucking Associations.
