Community activist and attorney Sarah Bagley just filed paperwork to run for City Council.
“I know that Alexandria is a community of smart, passionate people who care about our community and the world around us,” Bagley said on her website. “I am running for City Council to become a voice for that passion, and to build an Alexandria that works for every single one of us.”
Bagley is the executive director of the Chisom Housing Group nonprofit in D.C., also volunteers for the Alexandria Democratic Committee and the local chapter of Moms Demand Action. A Virginia native, she received her bachelor’s degree in government from the College of William and Mary and her law degree from the Catholic University of America. Her career includes stints as a judicial law clerk for the District Court of Maryland, and as an associate civil litigation attorney for numerous area firms.
Bagley joins a number of new candidates running for open council seats, including James Lewis, who just announced his candidacy.
“We must secure a future for Alexandria that balances the need for inclusive housing options with Alexandria’s unique character and history,” Bagley wrote on her website. “Beyond ensuring a range of housing price points in Alexandria, we must engage the residents in all areas of our city in work that supports the stability and growth of Alexandria’s economy.”
