Supervisor-elect Dave Roberts said Monday he will appoint John Weil as his chief of staff.
Weil is currently the chief of staff to outgoing Supervisor Pam Slater-Price, who will step down from her post in District 3 in January after 20 years.
The Democrat deputy mayor of Solana Beach won narrowly in the General Election as the final ballots came through. His opponent Steve Danon conceded last week.
Weil will help Roberts transition into his new role, which officially begins on January 7 when he is sworn in.
“As the top advisor to Supervisor Slater-Price, John has managed an office recognized for providing consistently excellent personalized service to constituents," Roberts said in a statement. "He has established a strong working relationship with community planning groups, town councils and other constituent groups to keep the supervisor apprised of local issues."
Roberts said Weil will oversee legislative policy as well.
