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.
I just got off a conference call with Governor Northam and the Va Department of Emergency Management (VDEM) regarding Hurricane Florence, which is now a Category 4 storm. On Tuesday, Governor Northam called a state of emergency, mobilized the Virginia National Guard, and ordered the evacuation of 275,000 residents of Hampton Roads (Zone A). The storm has now turned south, so the brunt of the impacts will be felt in North and South Carolina. Virginia remains poised to assist and offer aid to the Carolinas as needed.
