Commissioner Gregg Weiss was elected to the District 2 seat of the Palm Beach County Board of County Commissioners in November 2018.

Prior to his election, he served as vice chair on the West Palm Beach Planning Board and numerous other boards of area organizations and nonprofits. Currently, Gregg serves on the Palm Beach Transportation Planning Agency, the Palm Beach County Cultural Council and the 15th Judicial Circuit Juvenile Justice Advisory Board.

Gregg Weiss was born and raised in Southern California. After graduating the University of California at Irvine with degrees in Economics and Social Ecology, he made a career in the then-emerging computer industry. Gregg worked his way up to becoming a business executive overseeing sales, marketing and strategy for several Fortune 500 companies.

Gregg and his wife of 27 years, Rebecca retired while in their forties and decided to sail the world on their 50-foot boat named Kimba. After doing so for several years, they anchored in the Lake Worth Lagoon in 2004 and decided to make West Palm Beach their new home.

Ever since, Gregg has been active in the community as a volunteer and board member. He has raised tens of thousands of dollars for the West Palm Beach Police Foundation and was a founding member of Speak Up for Kids, among the dozens of causes Gregg has assisted.

Gregg still regularly patrols his neighborhood and serves as its citizen observer patrol captain, while Rebecca foster parents kittens for the Peggy Adams Rescue League. Gregg is a member of Temple Israel.
