                        HONORING DAVID WEINSOFF


                           HON. JARED HUFFMAN

                             of california

                    in the house of representatives

                      Wednesday, December 6, 2017

  Mr. HUFFMAN. Mr. Speaker, I rise today in recognition of David 
Weinsoff for his 12 years of dedicated service as a member and Mayor of 
the Fairfax Town Council.
  After graduating from University of New York at Binghamton with a 
bachelor's degree in History, Mr. Weinsoff pursued a Juris Doctor at 
the University of Bridgeport School of Law (now Quinnipiac College 
School of Law). Mr. Weinsoff has since built a distinguished legal 
career prosecuting citizen suits under the federal Clean Water Act, the 
California Coastal Act, and local government laws representing the 
government and nonprofit agencies.
  In the mid-nineties Mr. Weinsoff relocated from San Francisco to 
Fairfax, California, with his wife and young child. In addition to 
building his private practice, Mr. Weinsoff deepened his commitment to 
public service and the environment through volunteer roles on the Town 
of Fairfax Planning Commission, Marin Municipal Water District's 
Watershed Citizens Advisory Committee, and as a founding member of the 
Fairfax Open Space Committee, among others. And, after retiring from 
seven years on the Marin Conversation League Board, he continued to 
support the organization as its legal counsel.
  Mr. Weinsoff was elected to Fairfax Town Council in 2005. Over the 
course of his 12-year tenure, he would serve two terms as mayor and 
vice mayor, as well as on a wide array of community boards and 
organizations, including the Marin County Flood Zone 9 Advisory Board, 
the Ross Valley Fire Department Board, and the Measure ``A'' Committee. 
Known for his active leadership, the strength of his convictions and 
his commitment to public service, David's enduring contributions to 
Fairfax and to Marin County will be felt for years to come.
  Mr. Speaker, David Weinsoff's service has left many lasting and 
positive impacts on his community, and I am certain he will continue 
his public service in a variety of ways in the days ahead. It is 
therefore fitting and appropriate that we honor him on the occasion of 
his final town council meeting, and extend to him our appreciation for 
his past--and future--civic engagement.
