The Bio

JMWfamch2Vice Mayor Justin Wilson is a progressive leader working to protect the City's fiscal health, promoting transportation solutions, and supporting the success of every child.

Completing his third term on the City Council, he has approached tough decisions head-on; promoted an accessible, transparent and accountable City government. Justin remains laser focused on making Alexandria City a better place to live, work, and raise a family.

Prior to his election to the City Council in 2007, Justin has served our City, our region and our Commonwealth in a variety of policy Boards and Commissions, including appointments by both Governor Warner and Governor Kaine.

Justin holds a bachelor's of science degree in Information Systems from Virginia Commonwealth University, and is a Fellow of the Sorensen Institute for Political Leadership at the University of Virginia.

Justin is currently employed as a Sr. Director of Vendor & Contract Management with the National Railroad Passenger Corporation (Amtrak).

He lives in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria with his wife, Alex and their son Eli and daughter Lena. His children attend the Alexandria City Public Schools.

When Justin isn’t answering constituent email, Facebook posts or tweets, writing his monthly newsletter or attending the multiple City and council meetings each week, he is an avid runner, having just completed his 8th marathon. Truth be told, Justin’s real hobby is reading the City and school budgets for fun.
