Hi there. My name is Rob and I am running for reelection to the Gaithersburg City Council. Please take the time to peruse my website, learn about Who I am, and  Why I am Running for Reelection.  Also, feel free to contact me anytime. I am happy to talk. I hope that you like what you see, and will consider voting for me on November 5th!

If you are running low on time, and can only stay for a moment, here is me in a nutshell:

I am a 20-year veteran of the United States Army. Most of my career has been spent as a Judge Advocate advising Soldiers and Commanders.  After seven years of active duty service, I continued serving the Army as a civilian attorney, and am in the Army reserves.  My current employer is the U.S. Government Accountability Office where I work as a Senior Attorney in the area of procurement law. I was elected to the Gaithersburg City Council in 2015, and have been serving the residents of Gaithersburg ever since.

I believe in good government–that government should be responsive and responsible to the people, and that elected officials are accountable to the citizens who elect them. I think of myself as a moderate and that everything worth doing is worth doing in moderation. However, I am a staunch fiscal conservative who believes that government should live within its means, and only demand of its citizens what is required to provide for the common good. I think I have held true to these values during my first four years on the Council, and promise to hold true to these ideals if reelected.
