Bruce Todd was born in Rahway, New Jersey on October 16, 1949. One of three sons and a daughter to Kingsley L. Todd and Evelyn M. Todd, he was raised in the small town of Garwood, New Jersey, self-identified as the “Industrial Center of Union County." He attended Garwood public grade school, Arthur L. Johnson Regional High School in Clark, and for a short period, studied at the formerly known Newark State Teachers College in Union.
In January 1968, Bruce enlisted in the U.S. Army attending basic training at Fort Dix, New Jersey, and trained at the U.S. Army Air Defense School at Fort Bliss, Texas as a radar and battery control technician on the Hawk Missile System. He helped in training tasks at the Air Defense School until being deployed to an air defense site in Korea for the remainder of his three years of service.
In search for answers to the problems then confronting the nation, Bruce became involved in the anti-war movement until coming into contact with the LaRouche Movement. In the 1970s, he ran for State Assembly and Congress on LaRouche's U.S. Labor Party ticket. During this time he also apprenticed as a member of Carpenters Local Union 715, Elizabeth, New Jersey, working in all areas of industrial construction and later becoming a Millwright, working in refineries, petro-chemical, pharmaceutical, energy, and particularly the nuclear industry.
In 1985, Bruce was married to Lydia E. Todd and is the proud father of two sons and a grandson. He is now retired, and a 40 year member of a movement with the proud tradition of helping to build the nation.
Following the 2007-2008 financial collapse and bailouts to Wall Street, Bruce became very concerned with the drastic way the nation was headed. He again joined with members of Mr. LaRouche’s Political Action Committee:
"The now day-by-day battle for the fight to restore the Constitutional Principle of Glass-Steagall in New Jersey, across the nation, and even around the globe, and the return to the principles of Hamilton, Lincoln, F.D.R. and Kennedy; this is the life or death issue facing citizens today.”
"It is truly fitting that on this anniversary of the fight to both establish and then preserve those Constitutional Principles, that I ask citizens to step forward once again to meet the present threat to the continued existence of our nation.”
