Gather your thoughts, give thanks, and get after it. For some the sun always rises, but for some the sun will always be covered by clouds and darkness – this makes Bruce Thompson sad, he wants everyone to be excited when the sun comes up! It is his hope that Georgian’s will realize that a new day has dawned and with it brings new opportunities. As your new labor commissioner Bruce can’t wait to roll up his sleeves and get started at restoring confidence in this agency, while providing hope for a better tomorrow.
2 Lane Travel with Bruce Thompson in Georgia

Welcome back to #2lanetravel! We are tearing up the roads traveling all around the Great State of Georgia. Yesterday we were in Columbus where Governor Kemp signed four of veterans bills. We are so excited to announce that veterans in our state will be taken care of not only while they are serving but if they retire to our state we would love to have them.
Bruce and his team head to Glennville, GA for the annual BBQ. Our first responders put their lives on the line every day for us, and it is so important that we recognize them for that. We are very grateful for the Sheriffs that are all over the Great State of Georgia endorsing our campaign. They understand, what we understand – that people need to get back to work.
Bruce and his team had the pleasure of meeting with Tom and Lisa Jones on this #2lanetravel. Tom and Lisa moved to Georgia from California and are involved in the animation movie industry. Tom and his friends so generously offered to produce a song for Bruce’s campaign. It has been a blast to produce and we have been incorporating our #2lanetravel across the Great State of Georgia into this song. We have loved being able to travel because it gives us a chance to meet people just like you.
Bruce and his team are in Crawford County attending the Annual Chamber Dinner. We are so thrilled to be down here with everyone, meeting new people. That is the best part of this #2lanetravel experience – getting to meet new people all over the Great State of Georgia! This morning was very busy during EV Day, where electric vehicles of all types were on the campus at the Georgia Capitol.
It’s a Sunday afternoon and we are expecting hundreds of people to come out to the annual Colquitt county picnic in Moultrie. Earlier this week we were at the Capitol for Crossover Day where we saw bills crossing over from each chamber. These bills need to make it across if they have a chance of being passed.
The Georgia Department of Labor has been too slow in its response to the current issues they are facing. This morning Bruce and his team went to grab some breakfast in Vidalia, GA at the Huddle House. The owner Scooter met us at the door to welcome us and we were told a sad story.
Bruce and his team have finally made it to the Rattlesnake Roundup in Georgia. You can see the rattlesnakes are moving pretty slow due to the cold, a lot like the Georgia Department of Labor. Whether you are the current commissioner or deputy commissioner, either way, the response from them has been as slow as these rattlesnakes. Agencies are still closed and that should not be the case. Bruce is determined to fix these issues as your next labor commissioner.
Bruce and his team continue their #2lanetravel heading to the Rattlesnake Roundup. On the way, they wanted to stop at a Waffle House to grab some food – sadly they were takeout only. So many businesses like this Waffle House are takeout only due to the current workforce shortage Georgia is facing. It is insane how many people don’t want to work right now all over the state.
Bruce and his team headed to Griffen, GA during this #2lanetravel to celebrate Earl Shiver’s birthday at the Bailey Tebault House. Everyone that is a part of the GOP is here to celebrate with us because they understand how important Earl is to the Republican Party.
