Fairfax, Va., Feb. 25, 2014—Michael J. Cameron today officially announced his campaign for Fairfax City Council. Cameron, a resident of the city’s Mosby Woods neighborhood, seeks one of six seats on the non-partisan governing body. 

“Fairfax is implementing exciting revitalization plans,” Cameron said. “I hope to bring a fresh perspective to the table while building productive relationships with neighbors, business leaders, and other experienced stakeholders.” 

Cameron’s goals with the City Council center around Mayor R. Scott Silverthorne’s August 2013 message to the community regarding diversity inclusion and community involvement. Cameron recognizes that it is more important than ever to engage city residents from diverse backgrounds. He hopes to achieve this while advocating for sound policy and guidance that encourage development and revitalization of the city. 

“I’m a young professional who chooses to call Fairfax City home because of its engaging community environment and outstanding municipal services.” Cameron said. “I look forward to using my background in public administration to ensure continued prosperity and sustainability for the residents of Fairfax.” 

Cameron holds a Master of Public Administration degree with a focus in aviation policy from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. He also earned a bachelor’s degree in aviation administration with a criminal justice minor from Indiana State University. 

Cameron currently works for the federal government. Before becoming a proud Virginia resident, he worked with governmental and community organizations in both Nebraska and Indiana. He completed a research program with the Department of Defense’s U.S. Strategic Command (STRATCOM) and worked on airport development for the City of Blair (Neb.). Additionally, Cameron served as a teaching and research assistant in the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s Aviation Institute, and worked at a residential treatment facility providing social services for children and young adults.

The Fairfax City Council election will be held as part of the May 6, 2014 general election. The next council term begins July 1, 2014.
