Rusty Weaver born in Birmingham, Alabama in 1970, was raised in Vestavia
Hills. He has been dedicated to and involved in Vestavia Hills for over 28 years.
Rusty attended Vestavia Hills Elementary East, Pizitz Middle School, and graduated from VHHS in 1988. An enthusiastic athlete and local coach, he played baseball and football at Vestavia Hills Parks and Recreation, as well as football, wrestling and track at VHHS.
Rusty graduated from the University of Alabama, Summa Cum Laude in Business
Administration in 1992 and the University of Alabama School of Law
earning a J.D. In 1995.
He is married to Michelle Weaver, and parent of two sons, Michael Weaver (14) and Major Weaver (8). Having grown up attending Shades Mountain Baptist Church, the Weaver Family now attends Church of the Highlands.
He is an Attorney/ Partner with Law Firm of Weaver Tidmore and operator of a working farm in Etowah County, Alabama.
His belief in the importance of a strong family, community, local values, and team work, inspired Rusty to coach a variety of sports in the Vestavia Hills Parks and Recreation system over the last 10 years including Soccer, Baseball and JSYFL Football. That same dedication to his fellow Vestavia Hills residents and families was the basis for extending his involvement to run for City Council.
Weaver states “The majority of my service to our community has been through the youth sports programs where I have coached essentially year round for the last decade. I feel it is now time to get involved more in city matters beyond the ballparks. We need more transparency in our city government and a focus on fiscally responsible development. There also needs to be a renewed commitment to excellence in our school system and parks and recreation system.”
