Lober Will Cut Wasteful Spending and Prioritize the Indian River Lagoon and Related Infrastructure

BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – If Bryan Lober gets elected as the new Brevard County Commissioner for District 2, one of the first things he hopes to do in office is give himself a pay cut.

Yes, you read it right.

“County commissioners make $10,000 above the median household income in this county,” said the Republican candidate for the district that includes Merritt Island, Port Canaveral, Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach, Avon by the Sea, Rockledge, Kennedy Space Center, Snug Harbor and Patrick Air Force Base.

“My first motion will be to drop commissioners’ salary by $10,000. The current salary is too high given that the median household income in this county is far less than even a single commissioner earns.”

Wait, there’s more! Lober is self-funding his campaign because he does not wish to be in anyone’s pockets.

“I owe no favors,” said the Rockledge attorney. “I have no tolerance for cronyism or waste,” said Lober.

“Bryan Lober will bring a fresh set of eyes and an inquisitive mind to the county,” said Scott Ellis, Clerk of Courts, in endorsing Lober. “Bryan is beholden to no political or financial interests and will challenge status quo government.”

Lober is “the only candidate who will look out for our interests and not those of lobbyists, special interests and staffers,” said retired U.S. Army officer and former District 2 County Commission candidate Jim Glover. Glover went on to state, “I know Bryan and I trust him to put people before politics.”

The political newcomer is a conservative’s conservative who is not afraid of disrupting the status quo if it benefits his constituency. He brings to the table negotiating finesse honed through his years of practicing law. Couple that experience with a sincere passion for Brevard and the result is not your ordinary candidate.

“As an attorney and mediator, I am trained and experienced in building bridges and I’ve brought together parties who have seemingly inflexible positions,” he said.

“The excuse that a commissioner is only one out of five or that three votes kill a good idea is no excuse at all. There are ways to build consensus. As a mediator, I do this all the time. A commissioner needs to be able to build bridges with other commissioners and I can do that because building consensus is what I do on a daily basis. I work as an attorney and as a mediator and I persuade parties who initially seem unmovable to come to a mutually acceptable resolution.”

Lober grew up in Central Florida, graduating from Seminole High School and from Stetson University College of Law. Lober and his wife, Rebecca, built their home in a former orange orchard in Rockledge, where they live with their “furry child,” Winks, the one-eyed poodle mix they rescued.

Although Lober had considered serving in local government for some time, he had stayed by the sidelines until he realized no other true conservative was going to take the lead.

“Republican voters ought to have an option,” he said. “District 2 constituents deserve a qualified candidate who will not simply be a “yes” person and rubber stamp the endeavors of other commissioners.”

Brevard County Commission candidate Bryan Lober grew up in Central Florida and from graduated from Stetson University College of Law. Lober and his wife, Rebecca, built their home in a former orange orchard near the Indian River in Rockledge, where they live with their “furry child,” Winks, the one-eyed poodle mix they rescued.

He considers infrastructure, public safety and restoring the health of the Indian River Lagoon as critical priorities, but taxes need not be increased for these goals to be accomplished.

“I’m against raising taxes,” he said. “I believe in capitalism over corporate welfare. Confiscating money and handing it to your friends is not something a true Republican would do.”

When opponents question his experience, he points to the current resident of the Oval Office.

“Look at Trump,” he said. “He came in never having held political office and has accomplished more than nearly any other president in the short amount of time he has been in office.”

As a past president of the Brevard County Bar Association, Lober helped to streamline the organization’s efficiency by cutting costs while increasing transparency. He serves on the state’s Judicial Nominating Procedures Committee and is certified by the Florida Supreme Court as a circuit civil and family mediator.

His work in the field of law has earned him a position among the Top 100 Trial Lawyers from 2013 to 2017. He is rated AV® Preeminent™ by Martindale Hubbell, a rating which he has held from 2016 to 2018.

On July 18, 2018, Lober was recognized by the Brevard County Association for Women Lawyers with their annual Founder’s Award for his commitment to promoting equality in the legal profession.

Should he win the post of commissioner, he plans to scale back his law practice to roughly 10 hours per week so that he will have a job to return to after serving District 2 as Commissioner.

“Being a County Commissioner is not a part-time job or a hobby. It pays a full-time salary and it demands full-time work,” he said.

Brevard County’s District 2 includes Merritt Island, Port Canaveral, Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach, Avon by the Sea, Rockledge, Kennedy Space Center, Snug Harbor and Patrick Air Force Base.

The 2018 Primary Election will be held on August 28 and the 2018 General Election will be held on November 6.
