Now that he’s retired from teaching school for 40 years, Humboldt’s Mike Bruner has decided to run for office.
On Wednesday, Bruner filed to run for the state senate. With the filing deadline on June 1, Bruner is the only candidate so far to file as a Democrat for the 12th District race. Republican incumbent Sen. Caryn Tyson, who is serving her second four-year term, is also reupping.
At age 68, Bruner is full of vim and vigor.
