Weprin was a councilmember on the New York City Council from 2001-2010. His professional experiences include financial services; deputy superintendent of Banks; and secretary of the Banking Board for New York State.
Weprin earned a BA in political science from the State University of New York-Albany and a JD from Hofstra University. He and his wife, Ronni, have five children.

- Cities Committee, New York State Assembly
- Election Law Committee, New York State Assembly
- Governmental Employees Committee, New York State Assembly
- Insurance Committee, New York State Assembly

On July 7, Democrats chose Weprin as the Party's nominee to run in the special election set to fill Anthony Weiner's 9th District seat in Congress. Weprin was defeated by Bob Turner in the special election on September 13, 2011. Turner received 54% to Weprin's 46%.
Currently, the 9th Congressional District includes Brooklyn and Queens; however, the district is in danger. Due to population losses, redistricting may eliminate the 9th district and two congressional seats.
