Public service and community involvement are strong values for Rep. Weissman learned from his parents and grandparents at an early age. His grandmother was a tireless advocate for senior citizens in the small town where she lived. His mother volunteered for years in the public school district where he grew up and his father and both grandfathers served in the U.S. Army.
Rep. Weissman studied economics because economics is where hard reality meets values to inform many of the important decisions that inform how our society works. Later in life, he went back to school to study law because law is the language in which our public policy is written.
