Please join us on Tuesday January 4th for a fundraiser in Milton at the Olde Blind Dog Irish Pub. I am dedicated to Georgians and committed to being your next Labor Commissioner! We will be accepting contributions at the event and appreciate any support you have to give.
2 Lane Travel with Bruce Thompson in Georgia
From fundraisers, to podcast and radio interviews, to Christmas parties, and celebrating my daughter Hannah’s 22nd birthday – I have had the pleasure of meeting great people and spending time with friends and family. It has been a terrific experience and I can’t wait to continue doing so on this 2 lane travel expedition!
Bartow County is a very special place for several reasons. Known for having the first outdoor Coca-Cola sign, the annual Atlanta Steeplechase in Kingston, and movies at the Euharlee Creek Covered Bridge, Bartow is now home to the newest Savoy Automobile Museum. This Smithsonian museum now joins the Booth Western Art Museum and Tellus Science Museum making Bartow County the only county in the United States with three Smithsonian museums within a 10 mile radius!
If I’ve learned anything while traveling the State campaigning to become the next Labor Commissioner, I’ve learned how unique and special each county is within this great state. One such county is Bartow County where a southern gentleman named C.L. Tidwell started a Sunday morning breakfast on his property over 30 years ago. Learn more.
As you know, we have been blazing the roads of Georgia while on our #2lanetravel campaign trail over the past 4 months! We have built incredible momentum from our endorsements of elected officials, sheriffs, and the great grassroots of Georgia supporting our campaign for Labor Commissioner.
I have shared previously how much fun we are having traveling the state speaking and “breaking bread” with folks. On Friday morning, we met with our friend and honorable Chase Daughtrey who took a break from the bench to host a Community Leaders luncheon in Adel and more!
This past week, I had the opportunity to spend the morning with Tommy at his barber shop near the OK Cafe on West Paces Ferry Road. If the walls could talk, I am sure they would affirm the stories Tommy tells about all the famous visitors that have visited over the past 60+ years. Read this story and more!
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution released an article Wednesday morning regarding the recent findings in the Department of Labor. Over $1.1 Million was spent on free meals for employees during the pandemic. This is absolutely unacceptable as over thousands of Georgians lost their jobs and were denied unemployment. My comments in the article state, “If Commissioner Butler thinks is ok, therein lies the problem. If you knew it was not ok and you did it anyway, that’s a problem with your integrity.”
As we are #blazingthetrail, our campaign continues to build the momentum it needs to fight for the people of Georgia but time is of the essence!
