A lot is happening in District 2 and throughout the county. Visiting my website is a great way to learn about issues I am working on and to share with me your concerns and ideas. I encourage you to visit it regularly.
My commitment remains the same today as it was the first day I took office in 1995: to maximize the value of county services and provide the leadership needed to help guide one of the fastest-growing counties in California.
Right now our county is facing severe financial difficulties as is the nation. I am working with your other supervisors to preserve jobs and services until our economy rebounds. The careful long-range planning that we have followed during recent years is paying off in that, so far, we are not suffering as greatly as many other counties in California. I am determined even in these difficult times not to lose the progress we have made during my 16 years on the Board. I pledge to continue working hard on behalf of my constituents. I'm privileged to represent District 2 and thankful for the opportunity to make a difference in a county I am grateful to call home.
This website is a reflection of the views of District 2 Supervisor Robert Weygandt and may not necessarily reflect the views of the Placer County Board of Supervisors.
I have been a member of the Placer County Board of Supervisors for the last 17 years and live on the same foothills ranch in rural Lincoln where I grew up. I represent the western portion of the county, including Lincoln, Sheridan, most of Rocklin and part of western Roseville. I have lived in Placer County for over 45 years.
After graduating from Lincoln High School, I earned bachelor's and master's degrees in finance and management from the University of Southern California (go Trojans!). I was vice president, chief financial officer and part owner of WECO Aerospace Systems, an aircraft repair facility based in Lincoln. My other past experience includes service as a county planning commissioner, member of the county economic development board and community college instructor.
Today, I am avidly involved in Placer Legacy—a program to protect land, water and open space within the county. I am an avid outdoorsman and admit to being a fanatic fly fisherman.
I have a son Eric and a daughter Stephanie who both live and work in Placer County. I am a proud grandpa—with granddaughters Haley, Sydney, Madison and grandsons Braden and Tanner.

Representing Placer County
Placer County has many committees and commissions to assist in the successful governing of the county. These committees and commissions have a far reaching impact for all of us.
Goals of each of these committees and commissions:
- Collect and to provide information about issues facing our county from you, your neighbors as well as other interested parties.
- Advice the Board of Supervisors and to other county decision-making bodies, officials, and staff based upon this information.
The following are the committees and commissions to which I have been appointed in order to assist our county:
