Josh King is a decorated U.S.
Army Veteran whose service includes two tours of duty in Operation Iraqi
Freedom. During his second tour, Josh learned that his first-born child,
Josclyn, had been diagnosed with autism. He put his career on hold and
rushed back home to his family. Ever since, he has been involved in our
community, advocating for the disabled and volunteering to help veterans
re-integrate into society.
Thirteen years after returning
from Iraq, Josh is now serving our community as a Deputy Sheriff. He is a member
of the Persons with Disabilities Committee in Prince William County, member by
Gubernatorial appointment of the Virginia War Memorial Board, and the Peer
Support Training Coordinator at the Fairfax County Sheriff’s Office. He has
three kids in our public schools and has become the Secretary of SEIU VA local 512.
Josh was prompted to run when Josclyn
had to go a whole year without a teacher because her school’s special needs
program was inadequately funded. He wants to make sure that no child in the
Commonwealth, especially one with special needs, goes an entire year without a
teacher. He also wants the state to invest in mass transit options like the
Virginia Railway Express so we can reduce congestion and increase quality of
life. And he believes that we need high quality jobs in the 2nd district
to cut down the number of people who commute hours and hours to work every day.
