Bruce spent the bulk of his professional career in the publishing industry working at Surfer Publishing Group as the Director of Manufacturing for a dozen years and followed by sixteen years in sales for Quad Graphics, one of North American’s largest commercial printers. After leaving the workforce, Bruce followed Aristotle’s sage advice, setting out on the path of civic engagement. He served as an alternate on the 2018/19 Marin County Civil Grand Jury and has since become a working board member for the Coalition of Sensible Taxpayers. His interest in broadband and digital inclusion began in 2014 when Comcast sought to merge with Time Warner Cable. The Marin Telecommunications Agency directed Marin’s opposition to the merger, leading Bruce to follow the agency until it closed in May 2020. Bruce is an active individual member of the non-profit National Digital Inclusion Alliance (NDIA), a unified voice for home broadband access, public broadband access, personal devices, and local technology training and support programs. He has been a homeowner in San Anselmo for twenty-three years and is a former college national championship baseball player.
