The Problem-Solving Mayor Cape Coral Needs Now!




CAPE CORAL, FL, July 1, 2022: Former Boeing Senior Manager and Cape Coral resident Thomas (Tom) Shadrach will face off against appointed current mayor of Cape Coral John Gunter in November general election.

Upon retiring from Boeing in 2017, Shadrach and his wife Michele have called Cape Coral home for both their family and their entrepreneurial business, Rachman Industries. Since then, Shadrach has used his skills and expertise to root out wasteful spending as a member of the Cape Coral Budget Review Committee and by working as a private citizen to foster greater transparency within city government.

Shadrach is a no-nonsense business leader and problem-solver. During his 37 year tenure at The Boeing Company Shadrach managed a team of more than 500 employees globally and oversaw a $1.5 billion annual budget. While at Boeing, he worked with the U.S. Department of Defense to supply the U.S. Air Force and its allies with the F-15 Eagle fighter jet and oversaw the P-8 Poseidon Flight Simulator program for the U.S. Navy. Shadrach maintained Secret Clearance status with the United States government and continues to be an ardent supporter of veteran causes and organizations.

In remarks about why he has chosen to run now, Candidate Shadrach explained, “As Mayor, I promise to remove the barriers that for too long have needlessly diminished our quality of life. I will work daily to fix our city’s mismanagement and eliminate taxpayer abuse with greater leadership, accountability, transparency, and planning so that Cape Coral is well positioned to embrace the explosive growth we are expecting over the next two decades.”

Shadrach holds a Master’s degree in Finance from the John Cook School of Business at Saint Louis University and a Bachelor’s of Business Administration and Management, Finance from Southeast Missouri State University. Learn more about Mayoral Candidate Shadrach and his priorities for Cape Coral at or email the candidate at
