Colleagues Back Weygandt in Re-Election Bid





LINCOLN - Placer County Supervisor Robert Weygandt has received the unanimous support of all four of his colleagues serving on the County's Board of Supervisors.

 Weygandt, who represents the Lincoln area and part of Rocklin, is seeking re-election to the District 2 seat in the upcoming June 3 primary election.

 Supervisor Kirk Uhler, who represents Granite Bay and part of Roseville on the board, said Weygandt has dedicated many years of his life to serving Placer County residents.

 "His steady hand, sound judgment and conservative nature are a huge part of the reason Placer County is such an incredible place to live and do business today," Uhler said.

Supervisors Jim Holmes, Jennifer Montgomery and Jack Duran also endorsed Weygandt. 

"In my two terms as County Supervisor, Robert has proven himself - time after time - to be a great representative for his constituents and for Placer County generally," said Montgomery, who represents eastern Placer County from Auburn to Lake Tahoe. "I look forward to serving with him for many years to come." 

In addition to the supervisors, Weygandt has won the support of Placer County Sheriff Ed Bonner, Placer County District Attorney Scott Owens and numerous local officials representing Lincoln, Rocklin, the Placer County Water Agency and Sierra College. 

"I have served on regional boards with Robert and have seen first-hand his fiscal conservative approach to government," said Rocklin Mayor Scott Yuill. "He's good for our county and he's passionate about serving our community."   

"I'm humbled and honored to have the support of a broad group of community leaders," Weygandt said. "These individuals come from all walks of life and political views. I appreciate their support and their partnership in continually improving the quality of life in Placer County." 

Weygandt said his goals for a next term, should he be re-elected, are:

  • Promoting responsible fiscal management of the County, ensuring that we use taxpayer dollars wisely.
  • Growing jobs in Placer County, including District 2's Sunset Industrial Area, the largest industrial/business park in Placer County.
  • Maintaining strong law enforcement staffing and appropriate emergency response.
  • Completing the innovative Placer County Conservation Plan to preserve thousands of acres of open space and streamline the permitting process for new construction.
