Civic Commitment

Bob Weiner's commitment to civic involvement led to his decision to seek the office of New Castle County councilman for District 2 in 1996. The district includes western Brandywine Hundred, Greenville, and Centreville. During his tenure, Bob has fought against over-development and for upgrades to our community's infrastructure, including sewer, drainage, and transportation systems. Bob accepts no contributions from developers who profit from County Council decisions although such contributions are not illegal.

Public Speaking

Bob welcomes the opportunity to speak at your civic association meeting about timely issues of importance and to address your community concerns. You can contact Bob through Louis Hinkle, his Senior Legislative Aide, by phone at 302-395-8362 or by email.

Anti-Graffiti Brigade

The Volunteer Citizens Anti-Graffiti Brigade continues to serve the citizens of New Castle County in its efforts to clean away graffiti and improve areas of our council district that have been directly impacted by graffiti. We cannot thank them all enough for their public service. If you see them working to clean graffiti, please take a moment to stop and thank them! On behalf of all residents, thank you Graffiti Brigade captains R.J. Miles, Issac Walker, Chuck Stirk, Phil Lavelle, and Rob Cameron!


Bob has a long history of commitment to our community. From 1986-1996, Bob served as zoning vice president for the Council of Civic Organizations of Brandywine Hundred, a civic umbrella group representing over 80,000 residents. He developed an expertise in land use law and a reputation for fighting to protect the interests of our community while at the same time supporting responsible development. Since his first election to New Castle County Council in 1996, and his re-election in 1998, 2002, 2006, 2010, and 2014, Bob has authored numerous articles concerning land use issues, which have appeared in publications nationwide and in Delaware. He is regularly asked to speak on land use growth management issues to national, professional, legal, and civic groups.

Until his retirement in 2016, Bob was engaged in the general practice of law in Wilmington, Delaware. His legal career spanned 40 years; the last 15 years with Fox Rothschild LLP. Weiner is a 1972 Phi Beta Kappa graduate of the University of Delaware with a B.A. in Political Science. He graduated from Temple University School of Law in 1975.
