Representative Bob Rommel

Rommel 2.0.jpg

Born and raised in Keyport, New Jersey, Representative Bob Rommel is the product of hard-working parents in a small town, where most families struggled just to survive. His parents focused on hard work and respect for others, so he learned valuable life lessons that helped lead to a very
successful life.

Bob’s business in Southwest Florida brought him and his wife, Sandra, here and they eventually decided to make Naples their full-time home. He and his business partner currently own two restaurants: Bayfront Bistro in Fort Myers Beach and Bill’s Olde Tavern in Hamilton, New Jersey. They pride themselves on offering each customer consistent culinary cuisine and professional service. The heart of their business philosophy is to always do what’s right and treat everyone with respect.


Bob is also a Fellow of The Club for Growth which is a national network of over 250,000 pro-growth, limited government Americans, who share in the belief that prosperity and opportunity come from economic freedom. In 2019, he was the recipient of the Florida Chamber of Commerce Legislator of the Year award. In 2020, Grover Norquist appointed Bob to chair Florida’s division of Americans for Tax Reform. In 2019-2020, he served as Chair of the Civil Justice Committee. For the 2021-2022 Legislative Session, he serves as the Regulatory Reform Subcommittee, Chair; Infrastructure & Tourism Appropriations Subcommittee, Vice-Chair; Commerce Committee; Rules Committee; Higher Educations Appropriations Subcommittee; and Professions & Public Health Subcommittee.


Bob is delighted to support the Pathways Early Education Center of Immokalee by dancing in this event!
