Nokesville, VA -Today, Tom Gordy-R announced his candidacy for the open Brentsville District supervisor seat in Prince William County, VA. Tom represents the Brentsville District on the Prince William County Planning Commission and Veterans Commission. Current Brentsville District Supervisor Jeanine Lawson, who announced her campaign for County Chair, leaving an open seat on the Board of Supervisors, endorsed Tom’s candidacy to replace her as Supervisor.
“For 16 years my family has been proud to call Prince William County home,” said candidate Tom Gordy. “However, our neighborhoods, schools and rural places are being threatened by unrestrained industrial development and Brentsville is the epicenter of this challenge. As supervisor, I will protect our communities and rural open space by advocating for common-sense, smart growth principles that keep industrial activities away from our homes and schools and makes space for small businesses to thrive in Prince William County.“
Gordy is the president of the Armed Forces Marketing Council. He has served in the United States Navy Reserve for more than 20 years, including being mobilized to active duty in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. He has been an advocate for wounded warriors and was a member of the board of the Virginia Veterans Service Foundation. He served as Chair, Vice Chair and member of the Victory Elementary School’s Advisory Council and founded the school’s Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) program. He also served as an elder and board member at Grace Life Community Church in Bristow and as a coach in the Brentsville District Youth Baseball League in Nokesville. He is a member of the Nokesville Business Association and charter member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Chapter #12218 of Western Prince William County.
Supervisor Jeanine Lawson enthusiastically endorsed Tom to replace her, saying, “Tom has served his community and his country for many years, in many ways, and I am proud to support his candidacy for Supervisor. Tom has already proven his commitment to protecting the rural area and will fight to keep data centers away from neighborhoods and schools. He will bring the same passion and energy he has applied as Planning Commissioner to the Board of Supervisors.”
Gordy will be having his formal campaign kick-off in April.
