MEET ROB RAIN
I recently announced my candidacy for Spartanburg City Council District Two, which covers much of the eastern most portion of Spartanburg. The election will be held on November 5, and I would be honored to have your vote!
I am running for this office now because I have dedicated much of my life to public service, and I want to serve Spartanburg. My wife, Dargan, and I are raising our children, Beth, Anne, and Robert, here because we love Spartanburg and appreciate the people that make our community so special. I know that our city’s best days are ahead, and I want to apply my business, military, and community experience to the challenges and opportunities before us.
Proud husband of Dargan and father of Beth (5), Anne (4), Robert (2)
