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.
NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia Announces Endorsement of Jeremy McPike in District 29 Senate Race
Endorsement highlights organization’s dedication to building a pro-choice majority in the Virginia Senate
Jeremy S. McPike said he won the Democratic nomination for the 29th District state Senate seat by talking about three things: improving local schools, expanding Medicaid to provide for the state’s most vulnerable residents and making sure Prince William gets “its fair share” when it comes to transportation.
And by that he means fixing traffic clogged Va. 28, completing the widening projects on U.S. 1 and boosting support for extending Metro to Prince William County.
All three issues, McPike said, are “basics for families.”
Passion and Commitment. These were the two words that helped shape my military career. After retiring from serving 23 years in the United States Army and serving as the first African American Command Sergeant Major for the Army National Guard, it had always been a childhood dream of mine to become a fireman.
Prince William County voters head to the polls next week to choose a Democratic nominee in a race for a vacant legislative seat that could determine control of the Virginia Senate.
