Bruce Todd Public Affairs Website

Bruce Todd has spent a lifetime in the public arena—as an elected official for more than a decade in the ’80s and ’90s and currently as Travis County Commissioner Precinct 2, a seat to which he was elected from 1987-1991 and to which he was recently appointed to serve again, thanks to a vacancy created when an incumbent resigned.

As Austin mayor from 1991-1997, he led the second-fastest growing city in the nation to record levels of job production and environmental protection and spearheaded the conversion of Bergstrom Air Force Base to a $500-million civilian airport. He was head of the successful joint city/county effort to preserve thousands of wilderness acres in Travis County and was instrumental in the effort to involve the community in youth programs and to provide school-to-work opportunities for Austin students.

During his first stint as Travis County Commissioner, Todd was behind a push to centralize the county’s road improvement program under a centralized management system. He supported tax-incentive packages that become the cornerstone of Austin and Travis County’s job creation effort.

In the private sector, Todd has extensive experience in financial planning and in turnarounds for troubled companies.

Todd has served on a number of regional, state, and federal commissions, including as presidential appointee to the Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations and a member of the U.S. Conference of Mayors’ Advisory Board. He also served as chair of Mayors United on Safety, Crime and Law Enforcement (MUSCLE—a coalition of Texas’ largest cities).

Todd continues to serve on a variety of boards and committees for the benefit of the public, including Austin Community College’s Center for Public Policy & Political Studies, the Austin-San Antonio Corridor Council (current Executive Committee member) and the Long Center for the Performing Arts (board member).
