Under the campaign motto “Together we can make great Cleveland great again,” DINFOS graduate Bruce Cobbeldick, 43, is running for the Ohio State Senate in District 24.
To bring attention to veteran issues, he has marched 25 miles every Valentine’s Day for the past 3 years. If Cobbeldick makes it in this 2008 race, his goals focus on health care, reform and economic recovery for America’s families and the middle class.
He is a former Marine Corps Sergeant and journalist for the Salt Lake Tribune Newspaper, who got his start in public Affairs at the Defense Information School in 1985. The former Bureau Chief and Assistant Editor for the Okinawa Marine Newspaper, was also stationed at Camp Lejeune NC and MCAS Futenma. Bruce was an Honor Graduate winning the platoon and company Honor Man Award from Leatherneck Magazine’s Board of Governors. Bruce said that his mentor in journalism was MSG Dillier, his senior class instructor 7-87.
You might say that printers ink flows in his veins. Cobbeldick’s mother earned a degree in Journalism and Cobbeldick is related to Marine combat correspondent and Plain Dealer Editor Gordon Cobbledick. You might say that printers ink flows in his veins.
Cobbeldick has worked for Veridian Companies, in Fairfax, VA, a 650M consulting firm, as a change management subject matter expert and project manager.
