Robert Weygandt Launches Re-election Bid
LINCOLN - Placer County Supervisor Robert Weygandt has launched his campaign for re-election, pledging to work to continue responsible fiscal management of the county and promote policies to bring more jobs to Placer.
Weygandt, who lives in rural Lincoln, represents the County's District 2, which includes Lincoln, Sheridan and parts of Rocklin.
"As Supervisor, I have worked to ensure the county is well-managed, fiscally strong and a safe place to live and work," Weygandt said. "Placer County maintains one of the highest bond ratings in the state and, at the same time, has a very low level of debt. If re-elected, I will continue to work for pro-active planning and improved government efficiency with a budget that is balanced and conservative."
Weygandt has won praise for his work on the innovative Placer County Conservation Plan, an effort to preserve thousands of acres of open space and streamline the permitting process for new construction.
"We have made great progress in the Conservation Plan," Weygandt said. "I would like to continue my work on the plan and bring it to a conclusion in the next term."
Weygandt's supporters include all four of the other County supervisors, most local elected officials throughout South Placer, the Placer County Taxpayers Association and many of the County's top leaders.
"Supervisor Weygandt has done an excellent job of representing District 2, always considering and providing for the needs of his constituents," said Jim Holmes, Placer County Supervisor for District 3, which includes part of Rocklin and communities from Loomis to North Auburn.
Before being elected to the Board of Supervisors in 1994, Weygandt served on the Placer County Planning Commission and the Placer County Business Industrial Development Commission. He has been a champion for jobs for District 2's Sunset Industrial Area, the largest industrial/business park in Placer County, as well as the creation of Placer Legacy, an open space preservation effort, and the Sierra Nevada Conservancy.
Weygandt received the Governor's Environmental & Economic Leadership Award for the Placer Legacy Program. He was a founding board member of the Lighthouse Counseling and Family Resource Center, Wildlife Heritage Foundation and the Sportsmen's Legacy Foundation.
He has two children, Eric and Stephanie, who both live and work in the area. He is the proud grandfather of granddaughters Haley, Sydney, Madison and grandsons Braden, Tanner and Josh.
