Bruce is a long time Vermont resident, graduating from Essex Junction High School and the University of Vermont. After a four year tour on USAF active duty, he returned to Vermont joining IBM as an engineer and continuing his military service as a member of the Vermont Air National Guard. Bruce had successful 30 year careers at both organizations, retiring as a Colonel from the Green Mountain Boys in 2008, and an accomplished business leader from IBM in 2013.
Bruce was also an elected member of the Essex School Board, and a 10 year instructor at the Community College of VT. Colonel Roy has been a Williston resident since 2001 when he and his wife Cindy built a home on Martel Hill while he was called to active Air Force duty immediately upon the horrendous events of September 11th.
Bruce views this as the perfect time to extend his public service to Williston and Vermont. He will offer the opportunity for civil, balanced discussions and common sense to legislative issues facing the State that comes from experience as a father, business leader, military officer and Vermonter. That experience base provides a very unique skillset and perspective to solving Vermont’s problems that differs from his political opponents. Democracy is about choices, and Bruce will provide a clear choice.
