Robert W. Allen, Owner and President of R.W. Allen Financial Services, a mortgage company located in Indian Trail, announced he will run for office for Indian Trail’s Town Council.

Robert’s decision to seek office is a result of his long history of community and political involvement in Union County.  “My home and business are in Indian Trail and I’d like to live the highest quality of life possible here. Why should we be a bedroom community to Charlotte” Robert asked?

“If we are serious about elevating Indian Trail’s economic base for the betterment of its citizens, we have to make Indian Trail’s interest the priority and address issues that have the potential to effectuate positive change”, says Robert. According to Mr. Allen, strengthening public safety within Indian Trail, increasing its commercial and industrial development and creating a true sense of community pride will be top priorities during his term of service. “These initiatives can be accomplished by fostering a more pro-business stance through the promotion of existing businesses and the encouragement of new business to broaden the tax base, through the revitalization of major corridors and the provision of parks and recreation areas for residents” Robert firmly states.  I am looking forward to Indian Trail becoming a place where we can “Live, Work and Play” and not just a place to lay our head”, Robert said.

Committed to public service and the residents of Union County, Robert not only brings 25-plus years of experience from the private and public sectors, but also dynamic energy and leadership. While Robert owns R.W. Allen Financial Services, Inc. his wife Teresa owns Bears Lair Sports Bar also located in Indian Trail.  Together they employ 23 residents. Additionally, Robert’s experience and associations includes:

  • Chair of Union County Planning Board and Future Land Use Steering Committee
  • Union County Republican Party,
  • Union County Chamber of Commerce
  • Union County Home Builders Association
  • Mortgage Bankers Association
  • Real Estate Building Industry Coalition

When asked what he was most proud of and what makes him a good candidate, Robert’s response was his “involvement as Chair of the Union County Future Land Use Steering Committee and the overwhelming success the group achieved involving all fourteen Union County municipalities”. Robert boasts that “with the proper motivation and passion, through planning and communication great things can be realized”. It takes guidance, patience and focus and I will bring these qualities to the Indian trail City Council when elected”, he says.
