Bob Weiner, New Castle County Council - Nov 1996 - Nov 2018  

Dear friends and neighbors,

I have enjoyed representing the good citizens of Brandywine Hundred, Greenville and Centreville for 22 years as your County Councilman.

The voters have selected Dee Durham to be our new Councilperson.

I wish her well in her new position.

Best wishes to all.

Bob Weiner, your County Councilman
November 1996 – November 2018

My duty as your County Councilman is to make county government work for all of us. Since 1996, I have dedicated myself to respond promptly to every constituent request. I have developed experience and skills to seek creative solutions. I have passionately fought against irresponsible development while also fighting to protect our precious open space.






Councilman Weiner wants to Make Video of All Public Council Meetings Available to the Citizens of New Castle County

The public has a right to both observe and determine if their elected officials are maintaining the highest standards of ethical behavior and fiscal prudence.  It is now economically and practically feasible to broadcast County Council proceedings at a nominal cost due to advancements in modern technology.

Video access would strengthen the public’s awareness and engagement in local decision-making; thus promoting our county government’s transparency, efficiency, effectiveness and fiscal prudence.

This demonstration was paid for by Friends of Bob Weiner. Hopefully the rest of Council will support videorecording of all future meetings.
