Jobs and the Economy
Weaver acknowledges that Douglas County has effectively managed its resources without raising taxes by continually evaluating all operations to reduce overhead, leverage technology, and improve efficiencies throughout the organization.
Weaver believes it is imperative to continue to find ways to strengthen our local economy while simultaneously preserving the quality of life that we enjoy.
To remain one of the most desirable and safest places to live and work in Colorado, Douglas County must continue to invest in quality roadways by prioritizing and working to improve existing roads; support smart mass-transit options like light rail and low-emission buses in our urban corridor; and partner with the state and other local governments, developers and others to help improve roadway systems that are impacted by growth.
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.
He has also served as a former Parker Rotarian, Castle Rock Kiwanis Club member, on the Castle Pines Chamber Board of Directors, Douglas County Fair Board and the Douglas County Educational Foundation Board of Directors.
Weaver and his wife of 29 years, Mona, have three sons and two grandchildren.
