Recalling the past while shaping the future



About Robert


I’m running for office because I want to ensure that children growing up here today have the opportunity to come back to Vero to raise a family and earn a living. In order to do that, our local economy must be vibrant. My experience in development and my family roots in our community make me uniquely qualified to plan for our future while maintaining the integrity of Vero Beach.

I believe Government has a few necessary responsibilities. We must keep our residents safe, and support our local law enforcement community. First responders are the last line of defense between residents and harm’s way, and we must respect that and support them. We also have a responsibility to maintain our roads and infrastructure. We have a reasonably easy community to navigate, but there is always room for improvement. And we should maintain all of our current parks and recreational facilities, and address vagrant issues downtown.

Some of my experience and background in our beautiful community:

  • Vero Beach Native
  • Vero Beach High School Graduate
  • 1981 Lipscomb University Graduate
  • 1985 Managing Partner – Edge Information Services
  • Brackett Family Foundation – Chair

  • Professional Services Advisory Board of Indian River County - Former Member
