"Bob Robson has been a champion of developing the state's high tech economy of job creation and education at all levels. It was Bob who solved the inequity of the funding of the state universities, a problem that defied solution for 40 years. He sees his role as that of a problem-solver, not as someone elected to further his political agenda."
