4-3-2012 A Bruce Lang Sampler in Memory of Bruce Lang
Bruce Lang died on March 28, 2012; he was seventy-six years old. In recent years, Bruce often served as host on State of the State. In previous years, he was often interviewed on State of the State as he was typically on the cutting edge of what was happening in R.I. Bruce Lang is most often associated with being the founder of Operation Clean Government. OCG's Candidate School was his brainchild. Bruce often encouraged people to become involved in government matters and to seek election to public office. Most people would reply: I don't know anything about being a candidate. In response to this common refrain, Bruce started OCG's Candidate School as a means to teach people how to run for public office. Bruce has been recognized often as a major leader in the government reform movement. Above all, he believed that government could function better and serve the people well, if enough competent and fair-minded people became involved in government matters. Bruce Lang is survived by his wife and two sons; a sister; one grandchild; and many friends and associates, including the State of the State production team.
This is a sampler of Bruce Lang interviews with Bruce Sundlun; Joseph Paolino; Robert Whitcomb; Charles Lombardi; Jim Hummel; Edward Mazze; Ken Block; Lincoln Chafee; Patrick Lynch; Frank Caprio, Jr.; Victor Moffitt and John Robitaille; Robert Arruda.
