Supervisor Rodney L. Lusk is a native Virginian, a graduate of the University of Virginia, and has served his community as a Fairfax County employee for the past 31 years. From delivering human services along the Historic Richmond Highway Corridor, serving on the staff of two different members of the Board of Supervisors — Gerry Connolly and Kate Hanley — to his former role as national marketing director at the Fairfax County Economic Development Authority, there are few aspects of the county government that Rodney has not touched.
Beyond the scope of his professional work, Rodney advocates on behalf of our community through his work with a number of local boards and initiatives, including the Fairfax County Committee to Prevent and End Homelessness, Leadership Fairfax, the Southeast Fairfax Development Corporation, EMBARK Richmond Highway, among others. Additionally, Rodney previously served as a member of both the Fairfax County Planning Commission, as well as the Fairfax County Park Authority.
Rodney’s sense of service stems from his deep roots in the Lee District Community, and from the values instilled in him by his grandparents Eddie and Eleanor Dye, who called Alexandria City home for 60 years — and taught Rodney and his brother Robert the importance of honoring their commitments and giving back to their communities. In honor of that legacy, Rodney is proud to be the first African American male ever elected to the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors.
Rodney has called Lee District home for the past 20 years, where he lives with his wife Jacquelyn and their daughters Sheridan and Addison.
