Mayor of Garden Ridge
ROBB ERICKSON – Mayor
Robb Erickson is a graduate of the United States Air Force Academy, Class of 1991. Prior to beginning his Senior year at the Academy, Robb was selected as the Cadet Wing Commander for the Fall Semester 1990. The Cadet Wing Commander is the military equivalent of the Student Body President. After graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in International Relations, Robb attended Undergraduate Pilot Training at Columbus Air Force Base, MS. Robb went on to accumulate over 3,000 flying hours in the F-15C and the T-38C. In 2016, Robb retired as a Colonel from the United States Air Force after 25 years of service with command experience at multiples levels. Robb continues to serve as a Civilian Simulator Instructor at Randolph Air Force Base, here in San Antonio. Robb's wife, Megan, is also a Colonel and continues to serve in the Texas Air National Guard at Kelly Field in the 149th Fighter Wing. Robb and Megan's daughter, Maggie, is a Freshman at Texas A&M University studying engineering and their son, John William, is a Sophomore at Davenport High School.
During his tenure on the City Council from 2017-2019, Robb worked tirelessly ensuring the Voice and Opinion Every Resident of Garden Ridge was represented during the Council Meetings. While still a Councilman, Robb created the "Families of Garden Ridge" Adopt-A-Highway Program for FM 2252. In the nearly 2 1/2 years in existence, "Families of Garden Ridge" highway clean-up events have amassed over 430 hours of community service and collected over 250 bags of trash with the help of over 100 volunteers.
Councilman Erickson was also the driving force behind establishing a monthly Farmers Market for the Garden Ridge Local Community.
With the help of many volunteers along with City Staff, the first Garden Ridge Farmers Market was held in May of 2019 with nearly 30 vendors. Today, "Market Days" in Garden Ridge has grown into the largest monthly market in South Texas with well over 100 vendors.
