Republican For SD 11
Conservative. Trusted. Local.
Bob knows how to build a plan for our future …
Bob is a trusted community leader who, as President of the Bay Area Houston Economic Partnership since 2007, has helped bring the Gulf Coast Region a new generation of innovative job opportunities and workforce training programs. From overseeing the Space Alliance Technology Outreach Program to promoting the creation of a spaceport at Ellington Field Joint Reserve Base, Bob sought out the jobs of the future and brought them home. Recognizing the need for local training programs to fill those jobs, Bob helped develop and implement training pipelines on the high school, junior college, and graduate levels.
… and has real experience getting the job done.
Bob has worked to help Gulf Coast communities prepare for, respond to, and recover from storms. Since 2008, he has advocated for a coastal barrier system to protect the citizens and the economy of the upper Texas Gulf Coast. In 2021, Gov. Greg Abbott appointed Bob to the Gulf Coast Protection District Board of Directors, which was created by the legislature to operate and leverage funding to build the unique flood control and surge protection needs for coastal communities. Gov. Abbott said this project will go down in history as one of the most significant measures to protect Coastal Texas, its citizens, and the economic activities the region provides.
Bob has actively donated his time in many capacities. In recognition of his work and partnerships on behalf of NASA Johnson Space Center, its many contractor companies and the Houston Airport System, Gov. Abbott appointed Bob to the Texas Aerospace and Aviation Advisory Committee where he is currently serving his third term. He also serves on numerous boards including that of HCA Houston Healthcare Clear Lake, UTMB Health System Advisory Board, HCA Gulf Coast Regional Advisory Board, the Rotary National Award for Space Achievement Board of Advisors, and Gulf Coast Limestone, Inc., and Communities in Schools. Bob is a father and a grandfather, and lives with his wife Joan in Pearland.
