Bio: ROBERT M. WEYGANDT – Placer County Board of Supervisor, District Two -Robert M. Weygandt, a member of the Placer County Board of Supervisors since 1995, lives on the same foothills ranch in rural Lincoln where he grew up. He represents the western portion of the county, including Lincoln, Sheridan and the northern portions of Rocklin. He has lived in Placer County for over 50 years and is currently serving his sixth four-year term.
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!).

His other past experience includes service as a county planning commissioner, member of the county economic development board and community college instructor.

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.
