District 2 - Robert Weygandt
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.
Although our county faced severe financial difficulties in the past few years, the careful long-range planning that we followed has paid off. Today our county’s future looks bright. Placer County has earned a well-deserved reputation as a great place to live, work, lean and play.
I am determined to continue the progress we have made during my 21 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.
Placer County’s opposition to the potential placement of a sexually violent predator in our community
I am personally and professionally among the thousands of voices actively trying to fight the possible placement of Dariel Shazier, a sexually violent predator, in Placer County. I individually, along with the entire board of supervisors, the Sheriff’s Office, the District Attorney’s Office, the City of Lincoln and other jurisdictions are pursuing every legal avenue available to us to prevent Santa Clara County from reassigning Shazier to a residence in Placer County.
Here is a compilation of my efforts, as well as those of others in the region, thus far:
- On Jan. 26, I personally spoke with California 4th District Senator Jim Nielsen, who pledged his support to this effort. Senator Nielsen is scheduled to meet with Placer County District Attorney Scott Owens as well. We hope to provide an update about this meeting as soon as possible. Stay tuned.
- Other regional efforts to prevent this placement include letters from Placer County Sheriff Ed Bonner, Senator Ted Gaines, Assemblymember Kevin Kiley and the City of Lincoln. Click here to see those letters.
- Concerned residents have started an online petition, seeking to stop the relocation of SVP Shazier to Placer County. If you would like to add your voice to the thousands of Placer County residents concerned about this, you can sign and share this petition.
SVP Shazier, who is currently residing at a California State Hospital has a release hearing scheduled for Feb. 7 in San Jose, where the court will evaluate the recommendation by the California Department of State Hospitals to place Shazier in Placer County.
As your county supervisor and your neighbor, I am committed to doing everything in my power to prevent the placement of this sexually violent predator in Placer County.
Robert M. Weygandt, a member of the Placer County Board of Supervisors since 1995, lives on the same foothills ranch in rural Lincoln where he grew up. He represent the western portion of the county, including Lincoln, Sheridan, and the western portions of Rocklin and Roseville. He has lived in Placer County for over 50 years and was recently re-elected to his sixth four-year term.
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 work in Placer County. I am a proud grandpa—with granddaughters Haley, Sydney, Madison and grandsons Braden,Tanner, and Blake.

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:

- Advice the Board of Supervisors and to other county decision-making bodies, officials, and staff based upon this information.
