About me

My name is Robert Gerber and I am excited to announce that I am running for

City Council in North Charleston, District 9 in 2019.

I am married to my wife Kim, and we have four adult children, three grandchildren, and one chihuahua (Enzo).

I am a conservative christian and we are active members of Restoration Community Church in Hanahan. 

have been a resident of Whitehall in North Charleston since 2004, and would love to use my business, social and networking skills to serve our community and the people who live here.

I am President of GJS Architecture which was established in 2003.

I moved to Charleston right out of college in 1983, because of my desire to live in mild weather (no snow),

and because of the beauty and historical architecture that makes up our wonderful area.

Now, in the prime of my business career, I would like to give back to the community that has enhanced my life significantly.
