Rob Daves has found himself engaged in a variety of compelling ventures over the years in both his work life and in his life in the community. He has worked as a molecular biologist, a stay-at-home dad, and historic preservation carpenter. Before coming to Brookline 20 years ago, he served on a school board and as Vice President for Government Relations for the Connecticut Association of Boards of Education. He has been a Town Meeting Member since 2002 and is also a member of the Town’s MLK Celebration Committee. In 2016, Rob worked with Hidden Brookline to honor the great tenor Roland Hayes with a series of events including the dedication of a plaque in front of his former home. Most recently, he helped organize and lead the Committee to Commemorate John Wilson which raised $100,000 to place Wilson’s inspirational bronze sculpture of Martin Luther King, Jr. in the lobby of Town Hall. Rob is a long-time board member of the Brookline GreenSpace Alliance and co-founder of the Friends of the Green Dog Program. He lives with his wife Jennifer on Pill Hill where he has singlehandedly restored their 1895 home, winning a Preservation Commission award in 2014.  Their three children graduated from Brookline High School.
