Jeanine Lawson was first elected to the Prince William Board of County Supervisors on Dec. 23, 2014 during a special election. Since the special election, Jeanine has been re-elected twice to represent and serve the people of the Brentsville district. Jeanine has been appointed by her peers to represent Prince William County on the Virginia Association of Counties (VACO), Virginia Railway Express Executive Board (VRE), and the Potomac Rappahannock Transportation Commission (PRTC/OmniRide).
An Iowa native, Jeanine graduated from University of Northern Iowa, majoring in Political Science. She and her husband Dan moved to Virginia for job opportunities. They eventually settled in Bridlewood, where they have lived for over 25 years. There they raised their two children Catherine and Luke, who attended Prince William County Public Schools. They attend Grace Life Community Church in Bristow.
Her involvement in the Brentsville community included serving on the Bridlewood Homeowners Association, Glenkirk PTO and also being appointed and eventually serving as chair for the Prince William Safe Schools Council.
With the increasing threat of development and having a desire to preserve the natural beauty of the Rural Crescent, Jeanine felt called to serve. Jeanine became a leading voice for Smart Growth and the fight against unrestricted development and the consequences. She strives to maintain a high quality of life for our district while continuing to create opportunities for business.
As an elected official, Jeanine looks to build on the opportunities the Brentsville District offers in providing strong schools, community services, and business support.
