Precinct 2 Commissioner Brent Weaver announces 2022 retirement

County Commissioner Precinct 2 Brent Weaver announced he will not be seeking re-election for a fourth term, opting to retire from a 12-year career in 2022 to recover from a medical incident and spend more time with his family.

“This is something my wife and I have been discussing for some time,” Weaver said. “I had a medical event last August and that kind of reaffirmed our decision. We have a daughter that is in the masters program at Lamar that will soon be graduating and starting her career. Our son is in law enforcement in the Austin area. So this decision is something that we have been thinking about for a long time.”

In addition to serving his county as a commissioner, Weaver has served on the Nederland ISD School Board and worked at the sheriff’s office as a deputy, pilot and public information officer.

Weaver said he has intentions to continue serving his community in a different way.

“I’ve been in public service since I was 18,” he said. “I still plan on being involved in the community after I retire and I still have two years left on the court. I still have projects that I’m working on that I want to see finished, but I’m ready to rest, spend time with my family and recharge.”
