Supervisor Jeff McKay is a lifelong Fairfax County resident, born on the Route One Corridor and raised by a family of educators. It was his grandmother who first instilled him with the desire to work in public service, hosting voter registration drives at her home and fiercely advocating for affordable senior housing. Jeff is proud to have Morris Glen, an affordable senior housing complex in Lee District, named in her honor.
Jeff is a product of Fairfax County’s world-class public school system, having completed K-8 at Woodlawn Elementary School and Walt Whitman Middle School before graduating from Bishop Ireton High School.
After serving as Supervisor Dana Kauffman’s chief of staff for more than a decade, Jeff was elected Lee District Supervisor in November 2007. As Supervisor, Jeff has been a champion for equity, education, affordable housing, transportation, and the environment in Fairfax County. Currently, he serves as the Chairman of the Board of Supervisors’ Budget and Legislative Committees where he ensures funding for each of these priorities exists.
Jeff is also working to grow transit options and relieve congestion throughout the region, twice serving as Chairman of the Northern Virginia Transportation Commission (NVTC). He also serves on the Northern Virginia Regional Commission (NVRC) and the Board of Directors for the Virginia Association of Counties (VACO), where he works with his counterparts across the region and state on initiatives to better the quality of life for the residents of Fairfax County.
Supervisor McKay earned a B.S. in Public Administration from James Madison University, and is a graduate of the Sorensen Institute of Political Leadership at the University of Virginia. He lives in Lee District with his wife Crystal and his daughter Leann and his son Aidan, who attend Fairfax County Public Schools.
"Jeff was there every step of the way to help me get my business up and running. He gets things done."
