Robert “Rob” Bloxom, Jr. is a long-time small-business owner and civic leader who lives in Accomack County on the Eastern Shore. “As a businessman, I’ve spent my life balancing budgets and solving problems. I know first-hand how the regulations created in Richmond and Washington affect small-businesses. I’m not a politician, but a concerned neighbor who wants to create a better, stronger Virginia with better opportunity for Virginia families. Servant leadership is sorely missing in today’s political arena, and I want to serve the families of the Eastern Shore and Norfolk.”
Rob is the owner of Bloxom Auto Supply Co., in Mappsville, and Shore Tire & Auto in Onley. He is also the owner and operator of Egret Point Seafood Company. With decades as a small business owner, Rob knows what it means to create jobs, balance budgets and plan responsibly for the future.
He currently serves on the Economic Development Authority of Accomack County and the statewide Aquaculture Advisory Board. For three years he was a Co-Chair of the Seafood Festival for the Eastern Shore Chamber of Commerce. He has previously served as an elected Director of the Eastern Shore Soil and Water District.
Born and raised on the Eastern Shore, Rob’s family has been integrally woven into the community for generations. He and his wife, Lou, have been married for 26 years and have three children, Blaire, Madison and Brant. For the past ten years, they have been active members of Grace United Methodist Church in Parksley, where Bloxom currently serves as the Church Council Chairman.
The 100th House District includes Accomack and Northampton Counties, along with portions of Norfolk. The special election date is set as Tuesday, February 25th.
