Jeremy McPike has lived in Prince William County, Va., for the past 40 years. Paying for school expenses by working as a construction laborer and eventually as a construction superintendent, Jeremy attended George Mason University for his Bachelor's and Master's of Public Administration degrees, where he was selected for the Northern Virginia Public Service Fellows Program.
For the last 16 years, Jeremy has served as a volunteer firefighter and EMT with the Dale City Volunteer Fire Department (DCVFD), where he is a Captain and has been honored with Life Membership. He helped found and serves as president of the DCVFD Foundation, well known in the community for its support of public safety initiatives and Santa visits to kids fighting cancer. He also led the design and construction of the innovative and environmentally conscious DCVFD Station 10, which received Washington Business Journal’s 2010 Green Business Design Award and was the first volunteer fire station in the nation to earn the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Gold rating.
Jeremy has worked for the City of Alexandria for the past 15 years, currently serving as the Director of General Services. In this role, he works to make sure public building projects come in on time and on budget. He has also established gleaning programs and SNAP/EBT at local Farmers’ Markets so healthy foods can reach the most vulnerable, has built new public-private partnerships for the city, and, as a LEED Accredited Professional, has set up sustainable green building policies for Alexandria.
He is also a graduate of the Sorensen Institute’s Political Leaders Program, and the former Northern Virginia Chair for OneVirginia2021, a bipartisan organization advocating for an amendment to the Virginia Constitution that would bring fair and impartial redistricting to the Commonwealth.
Jeremy and his wife Sharon live in Dale City with their three daughters.

Dear Neighbors, As we approach “crossover” next week, the Senate is moving rapidly to meet strict deadlines to act on all legislation introduced by Senators. This has lead to many long days in both committee and floor debates, but we are moving through many important pieces of legislation.
Dear Neighbors, We have now completed 24 days of the 60 day legislative session this year, and it has been a busy week.
Greetings from Richmond!
This week started off with several great visits from Prince William and Manassas educators. I met with the Prince William School Board, the Manassas School Board, and members of the Prince William Education Association to discuss teacher pay and retention, High School Redesign and the renewed focus on career and technical education. One of my focuses is to connect students with local businesses and exposure to the real-world skills through internships, apprenticeships, and credential programs.
