I am a native of Nemaha County and am actively involved with school, community and regional activities. Since my family and I moved back to Auburn in 1979 I have been an active member of many organizations including the Auburn Chamber of Commerce, the Eagles club, Rotary, the Auburn Volunteer Fire Dept., and the Knights of Columbus. I also coached American Legion Baseball for 25 years.
Bob served on the Auburn School Board for 12 years, including a term as president, and as mayor of Auburn for eight years.
In 2011, I was appointed by Governor Heineman to serve on The Nebraska State College System which is the governing board for the three state colleges at Chadron, Peru, and Wayne.
Seeing the need for a regional approach to economic development, I have been a leader in business issues of Southeast Nebraska and am an original member of the founding committee of the Southeast Nebraska Regional Partners Group.
My real estate related background in mortgage lending, appraising, zoning, and land use issues provides my clients with a high level of service representing their best interests.
My late wife Wendy was an elementary teacher with Auburn Public Schools. My daughter Kara lives in Auburn and is a teacher at Humboldt-Table Rock-Steinhauer Public Schools. My other daughter Kristine is married to Clint Swanson and they have three children: Olivia, Ella, and Blake.
