Former Buffalo Bills running back and NFL Hall of Famer Thurman Thomas is the newest member of the New York State Tourism Advisory Council.
Governor Cuomo made the announcement today and also recommended that Thomas fill the position of Vice Chair.

“I am pleased to welcome Thurman Thomas, a New Yorker known by sports fans all around the world, to the New York State Tourism Advisory Council,” Coumo said. “For more than a decade, Mr. Thomas represented Buffalo on the football field and was part of the Bills team that went to the Super bowl four times in a row. He has shown a commitment to the Empire State both on and off the field. Now Mr. Thomas will be using his experience to help make Upstate New York a premier destination for visitors around the globe and continue to grow our tourism industry.”

Thomas began and ended his pro football career with the Buffalo Bills and still holds the franchise rushing record. He still lives in Buffalo and is a founder of the Legends Energy Group.

“I am honored that Governor Cuomo has appointed me to the Tourism Advisory Council,” Thomas said. “I know how it is to the Governor that Buffalo and Western New York receive the proper representation and promotion. I look forward to making that happen.”
