I am sad to learn of the passing of our former Mayor, Kerry Donley.
So much of our progress is built on the transformational work that Kerry led.
More importantly, he was a friend and I will miss him.
Please keep Eva, his daughters and family in your thoughts. pic.twitter.com/6Oh2wr4fMj

Donley was mayor from 1996 to 2003, after which he became chair of the Democratic Party of Virginia for two years. He was also vice mayor from 1994 to 1996, and then again when he returned to politics from 2009 to 2012.
Donley tried running for mayor again in 2015, but lost in a three-way primary between then-Alexandria Mayor Bill Euille and former Mayor Allison Silberberg, the latter going on to win the general election. Professionally, he was the former athletic director at T.C. Williams High School (now Alexandria City High School), and spent years as a senior vice president at John Marshall Bank and Virginia Commerce Bank.
Donley is survived by his wife, Eva, his five children and grandchildren.
