Retired Placer County Board of Supervisors, District 2
Robert M. Weygandt served as a member of the Placer County Board of Supervisors for 28 years (1995 – 2022). He lives on the same foothills ranch in rural Lincoln where he grew up. He represented the western portion of the county, including Lincoln, Sheridan and the northern portions of Rocklin. He has lived in Placer County for over 60 years. After graduating from Lincoln High School, Robert earned bachelors and master’s degrees in finance and management from the University of Southern California (go Trojans!). From 1979 to 2004, he was vice president, chief financial officer and part owner of WECO Aerospace Systems, an aircraft repair facility based in Lincoln. His other past experience includes service as a county planning commissioner, member of the county economic development board and community college instructor.
As County Supervisor, Robert was avidly involved in Placer Legacy and the Placer County Conservation Program (PCCP)—programs designed to balance responsible development with the protection of land, water and open space within the county. Placer Legacy was honored with the Governor’s Award for Environmental and Economic Leadership in 2002. Robert is also an avid outdoorsman who admits to being a fanatic fly fisherman.
He has a son Eric and a daughter Stephanie, and is a proud grandpa—with granddaughters Haley, Madison, Sydney, Emma Grace and grandsons Braden, Tanner, and Blake.
