Alderman Bobby Simmons
Alderman, Position 4
Bobby Simmons, serving his second term as an elected official, has been a Bartlett resident for 17 years. Active in the community, Bobby is the president of the Bartlett Exchange Club, former president of the Daybreak Homeowners Association, and Chairman of the Board for the Shelby County Credit Union. As a trustee for the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP), Bobby has enhanced the lives of children through the annual Christmas charity of COPS and KIDS with holiday shopping at the Bartlett Walmart. He enjoys hours spent with Dream Factory’s charity for special needs children where the Freeman Park event “BUZZ the RED, WHITE, and BLUE” brings the Bartlett police, fire fighters, and elected leaders together to participate in the local event. Bobby’s expertise as an officer with the Shelby County Sheriff’s Department qualifies his service as a member of the Public Safety Committee for the National League of Cities. In 2010, Bobby was inducted into the Amateur Sports Hall of Fame for his thirty years service to the Memphis Park Commission as a football official. Many Bartlett residents remember Bobby as their coach or their children’s referee in SYS sports. Bobby and his wife Sherry believe the services offered by the City of Bartlett are unsurpassed anywhere in the country. Parks, public works, police and fire protection, doctors and hospitals, animal protection, performing arts, community centers, schools, senior citizen centers, churches, dining, shopping, and our library are reasons for everyone to choose Bartlett as THE place to live and raise a family. Thankful to have the citizens’ input and concerns, Bobby will continue to focus his attention on our safety and protection.
