Hi, I’m Beau!
I’m a 3rd generation Lynchburger and an 8th generation Central Virginian. Growing up here, my parents (mom, Marty, and dad, Jim) taught my three siblings and me traditional Lynchburg values: that hard work is necessary, that honesty is essential, and that each of us has a responsibility for the well-being of the community.
I’m a proud graduate of the Lynchburg City Schools, where I received a world-class education from dedicated and passionate teachers. While in high school, I volunteered at the National D-Day Memorial in Bedford, where I learned, from veterans themselves, our region’s history of military sacrifice and the value of service.
After graduating from William & Mary, I served nearly six years in the federal government. In my last role, as the White House’s Finance Director, I was responsible for balancing the White House budget and ensuring that all money spent was done so transparently and in full accordance with the law. I believe that stewardship of taxpayer dollars is a public servant’s biggest responsibility.
Today, I live and work in downtown Lynchburg. When I’m not on the job, as a nonprofit operations director, I’m out exploring the city, hiking the Blue Ridge, or spending time with family (and, if I’m lucky, catching a Hillcats game at Falwell Field).
I’m running for City Council because I love Lynchburg and I want to see it flourish. We have some real challenges facing us. How we address multi-generational poverty, how we ensure an equal and robust education for all of Lynchburg’s children, and how we transition our economy to meet the demands of the 21st century, will decide the future of our community. But I know that, together, we’re up to the task.
As your city council member, I will fight every day for our values and our community. Please join me!
