Kennye Boddye is a business development manager in the community association insurance industry, as well as a community organizer and activist, advocating for healthcare, education, criminal justice reform, and combating homelessness. He is the Chairman of the Occoquan District Democratic Committee, the Chairman of the Prince William NAACP Criminal Justice Committee, and he sits on the Environmental Justice Committee for the Virginia State Conference NAACP. He is a graduate of Georgetown University.
“I am running for Occoquan Supervisor because it is time to build a community that works for everyone,” said Boddye. “We need to improve our schools, expand healthcare and human services, provide quality affordable housing, increase our transportation options. At the same time, we need to invest in jobs and economic development for our local citizens, fully fund our public safety resources, and embrace diversity in our community.”
“The community here has become my family, and this area is my home in more ways than one,” Continued Boddye. “Earlier this year, I discovered that I am the descendant of Virginian slaves who were brought to this area over 200 years ago from west and south-west Africa. Now I know that when I moved to Prince William, I was really returning to my roots.”
Boddye is multi-racial, his father being German, French and British in descent while his mother was African-American, French and Cherokee Native American.
“I love the Occoquan District, but there is so much more that we can make better,” Boddye added.
