David Weaver for Delegate, 1990

David Weaver is one of MoCo's greatest campaign strategists, spokesmen and staffers. He served as a staffer to Senator Joe Biden, worked on Gus Bauman's campaign for County Executive in 1994, served as Doug Duncan's spokesman for twelve years and was a Chief of Staff for both Comptroller Peter Franchot and Congressman Chris Van Hollen. We suspect there's a lot more ahead for him.

In 1990, Weaver ran for Delegate in District 18. He finished fourth behind Pat Billings, John Hurson and his future boss, Chris Van Hollen. That clearly did not stop him from being one of MoCo's most influential citizens for decades. Here's a lit piece from Weaver's House run.
