Robert Earl "Bobby" Whitmore (12 August 1977-present) is the 19th and current Chancellor of Brazoria, who took office follwoing the resignation of his predecessor Eva Delaney after the 2018 BNDT crisis. Whitmore faced an election in June of 2018, and his party entered into the Green Social Alliance coalition with the Green Party to form a coalition government. Whitmore had previously served as the Deputy Chancellor under Delaney, representing the Democratic Socialist junior partner of the Pact of the Left coalition, which was elected into power in the 2012 Brazorian general elections and re-elected in 2016. Whitmore has served as the leader of the Democratic Socialists since the leadership election in 2013, and he has served as a Dietmember from Houston since the election in 2008.

Before serving in the Diet, Whitmore was a teacher and coach at Humble High School, having won local fame because of his firing for his political beliefs. His popularity and youthfulness has attracted many moderates to the political left, and he has gained a minor cult of personality in his appeal to the working class of Brazoria as a whole. Whitmore is politically a Leftist and a populist, and he is known for his charismatic and impassioned speeches to the Diet on the necessity of increased nationalisation and transitional rates of sustainable development.

Whitmore was born in Galena Park, Houston, in 1977 and raised in Kingwood from the age of 3. He was the middle child of two sisters. In 1999, he graduated with a Bachelor of Education and a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from the University of Houston. He married his wife Guadalupe Whitmore, now a prominent civil rights attorney, that same year. Whitmore was a BHSFL coach and world history teacher at Humble High School until 2008, when he was fired for supposedly espousing his political beliefs in the classroom over multiple instances. A teacher's strike at Humble High School won Whitmore local fame, and although he was offered his job back due to local public outcry in his support, he instead decided to run in the elections later that year, and was voted into to office on a Democratic Socialist party-list.
