Meet Kenny

Kenny Boddye began his first term on the Prince William County Board of Supervisors in January 2020, representing the Occoquan District. More than a decade ago, he relocated from California to pursue his passion for changing the world through better governance, earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science from Georgetown University.

Since taking office, key policy achievements include setting the County’s first-ever climate resiliency goals and spearheading the creation of an Office of Sustainability. Boddye has also been instrumental in commissioning a Maritime Business Study to uplift businesses along the County’s waterways. He has been a strong advocate for updating the County’s data center policies—increasing the tax rate on these corporate giants, recommending their removal from the County’s Targeted Industry list, and calling for stricter guidelines on where and how new data centers are constructed and located.

In the realm of public safety, Supervisor Boddye has expanded the Police Department’s Co-Responder program, secured historic salary increases for police and firefighters and supported the new initiative to reduce panhandling. He has also made significant strides in improving mental health resources, supporting the opening of the County’s first Child Advocacy Center and a Crisis Receiving Center to offer comprehensive resources for residents in crisis.

Kenny is also committed to making housing attainable for more of our residents through efforts such as the newly established Housing Trust Fund, while also shoring up supportive infrastructure such as roads, transit, and schools. Additionally, under his leadership, the Occoquan Greenway has made significant progress, aligning with his commitment to connecting neighborhoods through enhanced bike and pedestrian mobility. A strong advocate for education, Kenny has obtained significant investments for schools year-over-year.

Kenny also ensures Prince William residents have a voice in regional, state, and federal decisions. Through his involvement in PRTC/OmniRide, Northern Virginia Regional Commission, and Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments, Kenny works with other leaders from throughout the DMV to find solutions for critical issues like protecting the Chesapeake Bay, improving air quality, and increasing economic opportunity.

 

Living in Lake Ridge with his family, who can often be seen with him at community events, Boddye also works as Assistant Vice President for Administration at Kevin Davis Insurances Services, where he protects homeowners associations from financial loss.
