|Info||Bruce Shuttleworth is a progressive Virginia Democrat who has a bone to pick with Congress. |
A former Navy Fighter Pilot, Bruce is running a grassroots campaign to combat congressional corruption, protect the vulnerable and responsibly grow our economy.
Bruce is not a stereotypical candidate.
A graduate of Annapolis and exchange Midshipman to West Point, Bruce learned the importance of honor and integrity from his parents; from whom he also learned to fight intolerance and injustice at every turn.
Bruce flew off aircraft carriers at the tip of our Nation’s Spear, but is passionately committed to responsible defense cuts. Bruce knows that better diplomacy leads to less force – and more national security. He thinks that when our nation’s primary tool is a hammer; too many issues look like nails. He is a warrior for peace…and enjoys chasing chicken hawks in his free time.
A graduate of Harvard Business School and former strategy management consultant, Bruce has been thoroughly immersed in the value of free markets and the power of capitalism; but he knows that smart government programs and effective regulations are critical to preserving and extending the American way.
Bruce has faced profound grief and adversity as he helped manage his parent’s losing battle with lung cancer, both non-smokers. He sees clean air and a clean environment as a matter of life and death. Bruce will demand a family doctor for every family. He will insist on access to a heath care system that asks what ails you instead of what insurance company you have.
As a Congressman, Bruce will fight to strengthen the laws governing ethics across the board in government and especially inside the House of Representatives. Bruce will never abuse his position in Congress for personal gain.
Bruce Shuttleworth will martial all of his energy as a progressive warrior for peace, fairness, honesty and justice across our great country.
At their home in Arlington, Bruce and his wife, Divonne, are raising their twin sons, Bowen and Reece.
