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.
Greetings from Richmond! This week completed “crossover” and now the Senate will begin considering all the bills that have passed out of the House of Delegates. We also spent a significant amount of time finalizing the Senate version of the Commonwealth’s budget.
This concludes the fourth week of the 2017 Legislative Session, and the General Assembly is moving swiftly toward “crossover”, a day when all the bills that have passed the Senate are introduced in the House of Delegates and vice versa. The three bills I mentioned last week (SB 1116, SB 1461 and SB 1462) have all advanced to the House of Delegates.
Geetings from Richmond! This week, I am pleased to announce that I had three bills pass in committee and move on to be heard on the floor of the Senate next week:
