Councilman Bob Weiner selected to represent NACo in nationally broadcast program
On Wednesday October 19, 2005, County Councilman Bob Weiner represented New Castle County and the National Association of Counties (NACo) in a nationally broadcast "web cast" entitled "Homeownership & Comprehensive Neighborhood Revitalization". He was selected to represent NACo because of his service on NACo's Affordable Housing Taskforce , his leadership as NACo's Sustainability Leadership Team Chairman and because of his leadership role in the Claymont Renaissance revitalization initiative.
The entire web cast will be posted to FANNIE MAE's knowledgeplex site in a few days. Here is the link: http://www.knowledgeplex.org/xchat.html
