Bob Bruce to file for Executive council in District 4

Bob Bruce ( D-Candia) will be filing for Executive Council District Four onTuesday June 10th at 1 PM, NH Secretary of State Office, State House, Concord.

The Presidential candidates are talking about bringing change to Washington, I say it’s time to bring change to District 4.

I am running because I believe that District 4 deserves a positive, efficient and proactive Executive Councilor representing them. This campaign is about bringing independent leadership, efficiency, and accountability to Concord on behalf of the people in District 4 and the people of the state of New Hampshire.

My priorities include developing transportation and highway plans that are viable for NH and that protect our environment, including public transportation such as Light rail and Bus service. Additionally, ensuring that the needs of our children and their education are not based on political outcomes, and that the Executive Council secures contracts with responsible employers who will hire NH workers.

The responsibilities of the Executive Council include making crucial decisions that affect all of the citizens of NH. The issues are complex and require common sense and an ability to understand the long-term impact of its decisions. The issues we face are New Hampshire issues not political ones and I plan on working with state leadership in moving a Pro-NH agenda forward.

Agenda items coming before the Council are leaning more toward technology, such as the new computer systems for the Department of Education, technology issues within the Department of Safety, Medicaid management, and new technologies for our first line of defense, Police and Fire departments.

I believe my more than two decades of working in the technology sector and more than a decade of technology experience with law enforcement gives me the practical experience to make the best decisions for upgrading NH’s technological systems.

My professional experiences provide me with the ability to evaluate the expertise of the individuals coming before the Executive Council including Judges, appointments to the Executive Branch, Commissioners, Department Heads, or Citizen Members. I will ensure that they put the needs of NH residents first, not those of special interests.

I want the citizens of District 4, my prospective employers, to know that running for Executive Councilor is the most important job interview of my career. I feel that my varied life experiences are a great fit for the position I seek.

However, it is the voters, who will determine whether my life experiences and passion for a better New Hampshire qualify me to represent them in Concord.
