In a Feb. 7 email to the32789, Vice Mayor Todd Weaver stated that he intended to keep his Winter Park City Commission seat, reversing statements made on Friday, Feb. 3, that he had considered stepping down.
“Due to the overwhelming responses from supporters, I’ve decided to make some changes both at City Hall and with my personal schedule that will allow me to remain on the City Commission serving the city we love,” read Weaver’s Feb. 7 email statement. “Most of the changes are to my workload and responsibilities outside of city business.”
On Feb. 3, the Orlando Sentinel reported that Weaver had stated time constraints with his business were creating issues with his city government schedule. According to the story, Weaver sent an email to supporters titled “Stepping Down” that stated: “I have struggled with time management of late. There is no end in sight for these other responsibilities.”
City of Winter Park Director of Communications Clarissa Howard told the32789 that no official letter of resignation had been submitted at that time. Weaver told the Orlando Sentinel that the delay, “wasn’t intentional.”
Weaver was elected to City Commission Seat 4 in April 2019 and was reelected in last year’s election. Most of his career has been in the aerospace and commercial aviation industries, he also founded Weaver Engineering, Inc., and TruGrit Traction, Inc.
The next City Commission meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 8.
