Rick, a lifelong resident of Chesapeake where he grew up with four siblings and raised his four children, spent thirty years as a teacher and principal in the Chesapeake School Division. In 2006, he retired and entered the real estate industry as an agent with Rose & Womble Realty. His call to public service remains. Rick is presently serving his second elected term on the Chesapeake City Council, where he has consistently provided regional leadership by serving as a Trustee on the LEAD Hampton Roads as well as advocating for public transportation on the Board at Hampton Roads Transit. He believes Chesapeake is a excellent place to live and raise a family in an environment that promotes public safety and excellent schools. He knows the city can do more. Serving on the Healthy Chesapeake Coalition Board is another avenue for him to help the citizens of Chesapeake lead satisfied and productive lives absent the fear of declining health and its toll on the afflicted and their families.
