DOVER (WJER) (June 29, 2023) – The Dover school board’s incoming member is looking forward to serving the district in a new capacity.
Anne Bruno is an electrical engineer and consulting firm owner whose family moved to the city from Boston 19 years ago this month. She says she’s been actively involved in parent-teacher groups and school committees over the years and decided it was time to take her commitment to the school district to the next level.
“It just continued to grow as a big part of me, and our volunteering and where we spent our time and resources has been centered a lot around the schools so it was just kind of a natural fit and something I was always interested in.”
Bruno was one of 13 candidates for the seat that’s being vacated by Bob Everett, who’s stepping down because of his new job as the director of safety and security at Buckeye Career Center.
“I have no doubt that there were many other really qualified candidates and so I feel excited to be moving forward with that piece of it and very honored to have been chosen among such a great field of candidates.”
Bruno’s term begins tomorrow and goes through the end of the year, although she intends to run for a full one in November.
“I think that would only make sense to continue that path and not just be a quick stint. I am definitely committed to the school system so I would like to see that through.”
Bruno and her husband Nick are the parents of two current Dover students and have an older daughter who recently graduated out of the school system. She hopes to hit the ground running after being sworn in Friday and says she’s eager to work alongside the administration and her fellow board members.
