District One – City of Troy
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the voters of the City of Troy for overwhelmingly electing me to represent them in the County Legislature. This is truly an honor and I am committed to representing the residents of Rensselaer County to the best of my abilities.”
Elected in 2018, Carole is a hard-working, self-starter who is resourceful, creative and solution-oriented. She is very active in the community, volunteering for a variety of causes to assist those in underserved areas. She regularly attends neighborhood association meetings so she can hear the various concerns of our residents.
Carole ran for this seat, formerly held by democrat Edward F. Manny III, to help expand adult and youth opportunities in Troy. Some initiatives include: fostering greater resource sharing among local municipalities to save tax dollars; acting as a watch dog for the County’s budgetary finances; promoting operating efficiencies and providing accessible responsive constituent services.
Carole worked for over 37 years for the State of New York within the criminal justice umbrella. She worked her way up through the ranks and retired in 2014 as an Assistant Public Information Officer for the Board of Parole. Throughout those years, she dealt with victims of crime; spoke to parents of felons, as well as discussed goals and objectives with county probation departments statewide regarding their drug treatment programs for alternatives to incarceration.
She was a past President of CSEA Local 668 (NYS Probation & Correctional Alternatives) as well as shop steward (NYS Division of Parole).
As your Rensselaer County Legislator, Carole is prepared to assist residents by listening and assisting them in resolving their concerns. Carole Weaver serves on the Public Safety/Judiciary, Social Services and Contracts Committees. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Minority Office.
