We're thrilled to announce the collaboration between The Brookhaven Chamber and Perimeter Chamber for the Prosperity Partners Luncheon, featuring guest speaker Bruce Thompson, Georgia's Labor Commissioner. Bruce Thompson assumed the role of Georgia's tenth Commissioner of Labor on January 12, 2023. Committed to establishing an agency prioritizing transparency, responsiveness, and fiscal responsibility, he will provide insights into the latest updates from GDOL. Additionally, he will delve into the "Walking the Last Mile to Reentry Program," designed to train and assist returning citizens as they transition from incarceration to the private sector and discuss its significance for businesses.
About Bruce Thompson:
Commissioner Thompson is a perfect example of how conservative principles and hard work can lead to achieving the American Dream.
Born under challenging circumstances, Bruce's "get it done" attitude kicked in early in life as he grew up on a farm, went to college on a wrestling scholarship, and served our country in the U.S. Army National Guard.
After catching the entrepreneurial bug, Bruce went on to acquire, run, and improve several businesses in various industries, amassing a wealth of knowledge about Georgia's needs.
Bruce decided to run for state senate in 2012, and it was there that he was recognized as "Legislator of the Year" multiple times for his outstanding work on monumental bills such as the Heartbeat Bill and Deep Fake Prohibition Acts.
Bruce's service to the state of Georgia has continued in his role as Labor Commissioner, where news sources named him as one of the top 100 influential Georgians for his work on modernizing the department, combatting fraud, and decreasing recidivism rates through his Walking through Last Mile to Reentry program.
