David A. Weaver was appointed on July 21 by the Douglas County Republican Party Vacancy Committee to serve the remaining six-month term created by the resignation of former Douglas County Commissioner, Jack Hilbert. Weaver was immediately sworn into the office following his appointment.
Weaver, the former Douglas County sheriff, resigned his position as sheriff to accept the appointment to the commissioner seat. Weaver was also the successful candidate in the June 24 Primary Election for the same seat, Douglas County Commissioner District I, and will be the only candidate for this seat in the November 4 General Election.
Weaver began his service career in the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office 32 years ago and is an experienced leader who believes in strong fiscal accountability, service excellence, integrity, and community partnerships.
He supports a healthy, balanced approach to maintaining the quality of life we enjoy in Douglas County, including preserving the beauty of our rural, agricultural and ranching areas, while focusing on viable and quality growth in the urban corridors.
Weaver’s education is rooted in management, ethics, and criminal justice – he is a graduate of the Leadership Program of the Rockies and Leadership Douglas County; a graduate of the Southwest Command School and a graduate of the 91st National Sheriff’s Institute. He also is a 2004 honor graduate of the FBI 216th National Academy.
As commissioner, Weaver’s top priorities are natural resources/water, jobs and the economy, and transportation. To read more about his background and opinion on each of these issues, visit http://www.douglas.co.us/commissioners/district-one-commissioner/.
