Vice Mayor Robert Littlefield

A brief excerpt from Vice Mayor Littlefield’s profile page:

Vice Mayor Robert W. Littlefield began his first term on the Scottsdale City Council in June 2002, was reelected to a second term beginning in June 2006, and was reelected again to a third term beginning in January 2011.

He is the founder and president of NetXpert Systems, Inc., a Scottsdale-based computer company. He also is a commercial pilot and flight instructor.  He first lived in Scottsdale from 1971 to 1975. He returned to stay in 1984.

Vice Mayor Littlefield has been involved in a variety of civic, youth and professional organizations.

John’s thoughts on Vice Mayor Littlefield:

Bob has a solid resident-centric approach to government, with just a few deviations from that philosophy. Bob has the unique ability to make off-the-cuff brilliant observations about the obvious that seem to escape his council colleagues,  often to their great embarrassment…and the residents’ entertainment. Bob is the only combat veteran (US Army, Vietnam) on the council and he’s not afraid to tell it like it is. Unfortunately, however, my experience has been that he also has some difficulty admitting when he is wrong and correcting his mistakes. Bob has been elected to three terms, and was a close second to Milhaven in 2010. His term expires in 2014.

Our next Council Member scheduled for this series: Ron McCullagh.
