Bobby votes for the long-term vision of our Village. I appreciate his sincerity.

I have known Bobby for decades. During my many visits to Carmel, he has made a point in helping me/my family patronize the businesses and learn more about connecting to the community. Additionally, he understands the issues/challenges it takes to manage a city in California during this tumultuous time in our history by being fair and listening. Carmel is a charming, but progressive city and Bobby has the skill set to keep it that way. Vote Bobby in 2020 šŸ™‚

Brenda Solomon

Bobby is a level headed, hard working and sincere member of Council. His decisions are based on what is best in the long term for Carmel and its residents. He has been a thoughtful and consistent voice on behalf of us all.

I wish I was in the city limit so I could vote for you, Bobby. You have my vote a thousand times over and Iā€™ll sing your praises to any Carmel voters. You serve with dignity, integrity, compassion, and a true desire to find ways to strengthen the city. I valued our time together on the Cultural Commission and I always valued your insight and discussions. I sincerely hope you are re-elected. The city needs more people like you.

Bobby has been very helpful and supportive with the reinstating of the annual Carmel surfabout surf contest. Bobby cares a lot about the Carmel community and its constituents. That is abundantly clear. As a 4th generation Carmelite, heā€™s exactly the kind of person Iā€™d want representing our city. I fully endorse Bobby for City Council.

I’ve known Bobby for about 40 years. He has always been a caring and loving friend. I was lucky enough to visit Bobby about 8 years ago in his beloved Carmel. The love for his hometown is infectious. My husband and I have been back every year since that visit. He is a hard worker, caring and open minded person. He is always willing to listen. He is passionate and devoted to Carmel by the sea. You couldn’t have a better person on our city council. Vote for Bobby.

My partner and I were fortunate enough to meet Bobby during a brief stay in the US in 2019. Though our time together was relatively short, it was clear to both of us that Bobby was one of the most genuine, welcoming and passionate people weā€™d ever met – weā€™ll definitely be back to meet with Bobby again!

Lauren Connell

It is a great honor to endorse Bobby Richards for Carmel City Council.

Based on personal experience, Bobby brings a combination of great business acumen and a person who demonstrates a true sense of urgency to get things done for our City.

Too many times my wife and I have been left high and dry waiting for timely and necessary answers to our questions from other City personnel. After receiving no replies for weeks and even months on end, Bobby is one of the people who helped us maneuver through the political maze to get the answers we needed in a timely fashion.

Bobby is one of the few people who has tremendous empathy and understanding towards the people he serves. He takes an interest and actively tries to help. We truly appreciate his efforts.

As I have personally experienced in the business world, there are three types of people:
1. People who make things happen
2. People who watch things happen, and
3. People who say ā€œwhat happenedā€.

Vote for Bobby and watch him ā€œmake things happenā€ for Carmel.

Thank you,
Frank & Renate Perry
