Candidate District 50
Lee Carter is an IT specialist who lives in the City of Manassas. Lee, his wife, and daughter moved to the area more than a year ago after falling in love with the community. Lee originally moved to Virginia in 2011, after completing five years of service in the United States Marine Corps. He is an active member of the Manassas City Democratic Committee, and spends much of his time working as a community organizer and activist – particularly in the areas of affordable housing and worker protections. He is also a graduate of the Sorensen Institute of Political Leadership. The Carter family are involved members of the Bull Run Unitarian Universalists congregation in Manassas.
Born in North Carolina, Lee was raised in a military family, and traveled across the country during his father’s service in the United States Navy and the United States Coast Guard. Lee is proud of his family’s service to our country, and his family has served in all five branches of the United States military. For Lee, spending a life in service to others began in his childhood as a “military brat” and continued through his own service in the military and beyond.
Lee joined the Marine Corps during the beginning of the ‘Global War on Terror’, and worked in technological repair in a Special Operations-capable support unit, completing tours in the Middle East and the Mediterranean. His unit was also one of the first to respond to Haiti, following the devastating earthquake in 2010. Throughout Lee’s career and civic engagement his focus has been on helping others – whether that was in his service in the Marine Corps, helping provide cancer patients with consistent care by maintaining biomedical radiation therapy equipment, or assisting small local businesses with IT support.
Lee is committed to the 50th district, and will fight hard to address the challenges that residents in the community – and across the Commonwealth – face. He knows that a large part of public service is being active in the community and listening to constituents, and is committed to doing that for all residents in the 50th.
