Loveland Insurance Agent
Running For Council
Robert Snyder of Loveland Seeking To Replace Councilman
Glen Rousey in Loveland's Ward 2
Loveland - June 12, 2009

Loveland Farmer’s Insurance Agent Bob Snyder, age 42, has announced he is running for
Loveland City Council this year to replace Ward 2 Councilman Glenn Rousey.  

Rousey stated two years ago he would not seek reelection to his seat on the council in a
posting he made on the LovelandPolitics blog.  Rousey was elected in November of 2005 to a
four-year term which expires this coming November.  So far, Snyder is the only candidate to
express an interest in running for Loveland’s Ward 2 seat.  The city election will be held on
November 10, 2009.

Snyder spoke with LovelandPolitics today in a telephone interview regarding his candidacy.  
Snyder stated, “I own a small business in Loveland and love this community.”  He described
himself as “pro-business” and expressed concern over the council’s direction away from being
“pro-business” in recent years.

Snyder stated, “I will be honest, as a business owner I am pro-business and see more
businesses coming to town as a good thing.”

Bob Snyder and his wife Gail have lived at
427 Wapola Ave. in Loveland’s Mariana Glenn
since 2003.  Both are active volunteers for Immanuel Lutheran Church and School.  Gail is
described by fellow church members as a “type A” personality who knows how to raise money
and get things done for the church and school.

Bob Snyder is an active member of Loveland’s Chamber of Commerce, Rotary International
and Gideons International.  Snyder hails originally from New Jersey and holds a Bachelor’s
degree in industrial Engineering from Trenton State College.
