Graduating from Ocean City High School in 1999 and the State of New Jersey’s Stockton University in 2004 with a degree in Communications, Commissioner "Bobby" Barr is a lifelong resident of Cape May County proudly serving the people as Commissioner on the Board of Cape May County Commissioners.
Commissioner Barr has significant experience in public service, previously serving as the 4th Ward Councilman and Council President of Ocean City, Community Outreach Coordinator for Legislative District 1’s Senator Testa and Assemblymen McLellan and Simonsen, and Board member on the State’s Pinelands Commission.
In addition to his current service as County Commissioner, Bobby also serves as Legislative Aide to Congressman Jeff Van Drew, Chairman of the Ocean City Housing Authority and Board member of the Cape May County ARC.
Commissioner Barr’s achievements in public service are vast, including but not limited to dedicating more capital improvements to Ocean City’s 4th Ward within his first two years in local public office than in the entire history of the 4th Ward. Some of those capital improvements included the opening of a new American Legion Post 524 Building, the remodeling of 52nd Street Playground, and various drainage improvements to relieve floodprone areas of routine tidal flooding.
Commissioner Barr’s philosophy has always been, if you want government to succeed, you have to listen to the people. Barr specializes in constituent services and welcomes comments and questions from the residents of Cape May County.
Bobby continues to reside in Ocean City’s 4th Ward with his family.
