Meet Alderman Bobby Aster
Tomorrow, our new Alderman, Bobby Aster, will speak to our community at 4:30 PM in the Pavilion, and stay for dinner. Alderman Aster was elected as the Ward 3 Alderman in October of 2017. Before taking office, he spent 36 years working with the City of New Bern, including 31 years with New Bern Fire-Rescue. He was Station Chief of New Bern Fire-Rescue and eventually became our Fire Chief. Alderman Aster is certified in Homeland Security and Disaster Preparedness. Currently he holds a lifetime membership with the NC Association of Fire Chiefs, the National Fire Protection Association and the American Board for Certification in Homeland Security.
Alderman Aster is a recipient of North Carolina’s highest award-the Order of the Long Leaf Pine, given to him by Governor Pat McCrory; he looks forward to discussing issues that concern our communities on this side of the Trent River, and enjoying Chef Katherine’s fine cuisine with us.
