In February 2021, Cooper became Chairman of the City Council. Within weeks, He began holding weekly meetings, passing bills frequently, and passed legislation for the creation of a City Charter. After serving as Chairman for months, Bruce resigned due a conflict with then Mayor (Isidoro Amalfitano).

After Leaving Bran, Cooper was offered the job of Lt. Governor of South Dracul by then Governor Katie Arnold, Cooper swiftly accepted and started making changes in the state such as making a state constitution, Penal Codes and Other Executive Orders. Due to Arnold now having a new born child, she chose to resign from the Office of the Governor, after her resignation Bruce automatically became Governor. After making some other changes in the state, Cooper decided to Resign in order to take on a higher job in the National Senate.
