Rob has made Annapolis his home for over 15 years with his wife Becca and son Whit. He fell in love with the Chesapeake Bay while earning a degree in Environmental Studies (minor in Business Management) at Washington College on the Eastern Shore. His professional career started with the Chesapeake Bay Program, supporting the efforts to restore the Chesapeake Bay. From there Rob worked for a number of years in private consulting as an Environmental Scientist, Ecological Restoration Scientist, and Sustainability Specialist, before starting his career with local government.

Rob was employed by the City of Annapolis, as a Sustainability Coordinator and Environmental compliance Inspector, where he reviewed development projects and authored the City's climate action plan. Rob currently works for Anne Arundel County as a Project Manager Engineer for stormwater management projects, managing a multi-million dollar budget.

He regularly attends City Council and commission hearings/meetings, advocating for the community.  He has also assisted with drafting legislation as both a City employee and as a citizen. Rob will bring his first-hand knowledge of local government to the City Council.

    updates on budget, reorg, City purchase W7 marina?

    Happy Mother’s Day! I apologize for getting this out so late! I’ve been quite occupied between Mother’s Day (and my much-neglected wife) and analyzing the FY20 budget and associated legislative efforts. See below for updates on the budget, reorganization, next council meeting, and a proposal for the City to use Program Open Spaces funds to join the County and State in purchasing a marina for use by wounded vets, the elderly, disabled, and disadvantaged youth.

    City budget, testimony needed, spring fundraiser, development update

    I have a lot to update you on, so please pardon the length of this post. I’ve tried to break things into headings so you can easily skim through it, but please do take a look, as there are number of important updates that you may want to be aware of. As you’ll see, there are several pieces of legislation up for public hearing, many of which have to do with the budget.  In particular, the Mayor has legislation up for a public hearing that would completely gut our environmental office. As you can guess, I’m opposing that (see my Capital Op-ed) and responded with my own legislation to create a new Environmental Department, like we previously had for about 15 years. I hope you will consider testifying on that and the other legislation up for a public hearing.

    Also, I hope to see you at my spring fundraiser at Caliente Grill this Tuesday (April 30th), from 7-9 pm (more below).
