Fighting for a better future for Chesapeake, VA

I am Robert Ike and I’m running for reelection as city council member for Chesapeake, Virginia.

Robert Ike Jr for Chesapeake City Council

I am City Council member Robert Ike Jr & I love Chesapeake, Virginia. We are a treasure of superlative schools, innovative economic initiatives and natural parks and trails of exceptional beauty. We are also one of the top financially strong cities in America. In contrast, the rest of our country is spiraling into a depth of excessive spending and big government. We do not want that to happen here; not in our Chesapeake! For this reason, I am running for re-election for Chesapeake City Council.

I humbly ask for your support. Please continue to give me the opportunity to make the best decisions for a Chesapeake that is strong today and Stronger Tomorrow!

About Robert Ike

Robert was born in California, but lived most of his early years moving across Europe as a US Navy dependent. His father retired to Chesapeake in 1976 and Robert attended Great Bridge High School, graduating in 1979. He enlisted in the US Air Force as a Military Policeman serving 2 years in Washington DC and 2 years at the United States Disciplinary barracks on Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas.


I believe our Chesapeake, VA city government should provide an environment where citizens can pursue their own goals, free from unnecessary policies, laws and taxes.

Public Safety

I served as a Chesapeake Police Officer from 1985 to 1996 and have personal experience with criminal activity in our city. We must be protected from those elements that would do harm to our families and property.


I support lower taxes and smaller, less intrusive government. Reduced taxes create more incentive for citizens to work, save, invest, and engage in entrepreneurial pursuits.

Step into history, be inspired, and let the legacy of the black community in Chesapeake ignite your passion for change. Together, we can create a future that embraces equality and celebrates diversity. Last week I was fortunate to have been invited to attend and take part in a ribbon cutting ceremony at the Cornland School Museum, an important and historic landmark of black history located right here in our own back yard!
