Robert "Bob" Yanacsek has lived in Union County since 1978. He attended Marshville Elementary, East Union Middle School and Forest Hills. He graduated from Wingate College in 1992 with a Bachelors of Science Degree. Bob has served on the Charlotte Police Force since 1992 and is an active member of the Monroe community.
Robert "Bob" Yanacsek is the co-founder of Warriors & Warbirds Museum and Airshow, located at the Charlotte-Monroe Executive Airport, which evolved in the Warbirds Over Monroe Airshow, the largest warbird airshow in the Carolinas.
Robert "Bob" Yanacsek has, during his 7+ years as a resident of downtown Monroe and through repeated appearances at City Council meetings, pushed the council to enforce codes regarding residential and rental property issues that resulted in a cleaner appearance for Monroe neighborhoods.
For too long, the voices of the majority of Monroe residents have been ignored. Small-town politics have prevailed and policies have benefited the few, instead of the many.
With the by-pass on the horizion, Monroe needs to make quick decisions in order to adapt to what will likely be a big change.
I'd like to represent all of Monroe, regardless of political affiliation or economic standing through this process.
