Bob Weiner, New Castle County Council - 2nd District  

Councilman Bob & Cindy Weiner with their Pomeranian pup, Shayna

 

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.

Talley Day Bark Park

10/15/2012 - An enthusiastic “thank you” to all of the volunteers and workers who participated in the semi-annual Talley Day County Bark Park Citizens Maintenance Day on October 15, 2012. This fall, more mulch was spread than ever before and we finished right on time … just as the rains came.

The annual spring and fall volunteer mulchings have been a tradition since the fenced dog park opened its gates in 2002. New Castle County's Department of Special Services, which is responsible for maintaining parks, supplies the mulch, shovels, rakes and wheelbarrows, and the volunteers provide the labor.
