Managing partner of Babbage Cofounder

As the grandson of Kentucky Governor Keen Johnson (1939-1943), Bob and his family have been at the center of political life in Kentucky for many years. Twice elected statewide to public office in Kentucky as State Auditor (1988-1992) and Secretary of State (1992-1996), Bob has spent a lifetime shaping public policy. Having also served as a key assistant to Kentucky Governor Julian Carroll (1976-1979), a top aide to the former mayor of Lexington, KY, and as an advisor to former University of Kentucky President Otis Singletary plus White House advance staff for Walter Mondale, Bob’s experience in the public sector spans decades and traverses all levels of government. 

But some of Bob’s most important work has come as the leading lobbyist of Babbage Cofounder. Cofounder, a name that stems from Bob’s visionary efforts to cofound Leadership Kentucky, launch the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership program in Kentucky, and help initiate the Lexington Dream Factory, is a foremost government relations and corporate strategies firm focused on turning concerns into action and initiatives into results. 

Bob enjoys providing moderate “context and perspective” on politics for the NBC TV affiliate in Lexington as well as WVLK-AM radio. He writes the legislative preview each January for the major publications.
