Hi, my name is
and I'm running for North Liberty City Council
I am a North Liberty resident, father, husband, colleague, and proud member of our community.
The ballot says Robert, but my friends and family call me Joey.
I was raised in Texas and graduated from Texas Christian University, followed by the University of Texas at Tyler for my graduate degree. My family has lived in the area since 2014 and we live in the Fox Run neighborhood. I have two sons, Shea (5) and Jamie (2.5), with my wife of 8 years, Allison. I worked at Steindler Orthopedic Clinic from 2014 to 2019 and currently work at Integrated DNA Technologies. I enjoy spending time with my family here in the area, especially with my two kids – running around and playing outside. My wife and I love visiting many of North Liberty’s small businesses, and we’re passionate about keeping our dollars local.
I’ve spent my educational and professional career helping others and will continue that trend while serving on City Council. My experience within the city includes serving on the Board of Adjustment from 2018 to 2019, and the Board of Appeals since 2019. My wife, Allison, recently took over management of the North Liberty City-Wide Garage Sale – one of our favorite annual events!
My community service thus far may not be flashy or well known publicly, but it fits my personality because I’m not a flashy person. I come in and work hard on the task at hand – not for personal glory, but just for the fact that I can contribute in a meaningful way to all of those around me even if they never know my name.
What I want to focus on
There are several areas that I believe North Liberty should focus on in the coming years. As your next North Liberty City Council member, I will work to improve our community in many areas, including:
