Bobby began his career in public service when, at 17 years old, he enlisted in the United States Navy. Following his tour in the navy, he sailed an additional 8 years in the U.S. Merchant Marine and then returned ashore to begin a 20 year career as a professional firefighter. Driven to help others, Bobby went on to represent first responders in both State and Federal advocacy.
Before joining Maine Street Solutions he worked for U.S. Senator Susan M. Collins serving in varying roles, including leadership positions in her 2008 and 2014 campaigns as well as important positions on her personal staff where he worked on issues ranging from homeland security, defense, navy shipbuilding, and labor. In 2014, Bobby served as Political Director on the Collins for Senator campaign leading that effort to a near-40 point victory. During the campaign Bobby coordinated both the grassroots and the grasstop efforts resulting in an unprecedented statewide volunteer organization with operatives in every community in Maine.
He also oversaw critical fundraising, endorsement, and political messaging efforts for the year preceding the election. Bobby lives with his wife in Manchester ME.
