"We made a terrific decision today. The City Council has the utmost confidence in Mr. Weaver's abilities, and looks forward to Chad bringing his years of municipal law experience into the position. I also want to thank Mr. Satterwhite for the great job he's done as interim."

Mr. Weaver is a Lubbock native, who grew up in College Station. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Baylor University and received his law degree from the Baylor University School of Law.
