Bruce grew up in Albuquerque, NM and he is a Republican Constitutional Conservative. He worked in the construction industry, both residential and commercial, until he decided to further his education in the wildlife sciences. Bruce earned a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Wildlife Management with a minor in Sociology and a Master’s of Science Degree in Wildlife and Fisheries Ecology. While working on his Master’s Degree, Bruce was employed as a Research Assistant with the Oklahoma Cooperative U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Research Unit.
After finishing his Master’s Degree in 1994, Bruce gained full-time employment with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) Office of Law Enforcement (OLE) as a Wildlife Inspector, and was stationed in Houston, TX. In 1997, Bruce obtained a position as a Service OLE Special Agent. After successfully completing extensive training at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Brunswick, GA, Bruce was stationed in Florida (first in Ft. Myers for two years and the remainder of time in Vero Beach) from 1998-2008. In 2008, Bruce was promoted to a Service OLE Supervisory Special Agent and stationed in Cambridge, MD. He retired from the Service OLE in 2018.
In 2015, Bruce was accepted into the National Association of Conservation Law Enforcement Chief’s Leadership Academy and he subsequently became a leadership coach for this nationally and internationally acclaimed leadership academy.
Most importantly though, in 1999 Bruce met his wife Kimberly. They were married in 2003 and have been blessed with two wonderful boys, Gavin and Declan. Both Corley boys attended Chapel District Elementary School. Gavin attended Easton Middle School and one year at Easton High School. Both boys were pulled out of Talbot County Public Schools because of the critical race theory curriculum being forced on not only the students but also the administrators and teachers. Another factor in the decision was due to the lack of control and discipline the administrators have over students at our middle schools and high schools. Gavin and Declan are currently attending and excelling at Saints Peter and Paul Parochial School.
Since his retirement from the Service, Bruce has chosen to be a full-time husband, father, hunter, fisherman, and youth hockey chauffeur. Until now, of course. He has chosen to come out of retirement to seek a seat on the Talbot County Council and work for our great Talbot County community.
Bruce attributes his success to his beliefs in faith, family and freedom, and he will continue to live by those beliefs while focusing on maintaining and improving our: 1) criminal justice system, 2) emergency services program, 3) developing our future leaders, our children, to the maximum extent possible, both physically and mentally, 4) help guide our community growth with emphasis on being ecologically and fiscally responsible, and 5) focusing on maintaining and upholding our Constitutional rights.
