Vangie Williams for Congress
Virginia’s 1st Congressional District - often called America’s First Congressional District - encompasses all or part of 19 counties, and the City of Fredericksburg. The First District is the home to American history, from Manassas to Williamsburg, to Virginia’s Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula, and everywhere in between, the First District is where history was made, and where history will be made again with the election of Vangie Williams in 2018.
With family roots in King George, Westmoreland, Caroline, and Essex Counties, Vangie Williams understands the First Congressional District of Virginia. It is her home. The place where she is raising her family. The place where she shops, works, and lives.
Not a career politician, Vangie’s vast real-world professional experience uniquely positions her to bring the common sense solutions to Washington which the constituents of the 1st District want and deserve. Her career in high-level project management in the areas of aerospace, construction, defense contracting, government operations, IT, and national security span three decades.
Vangie’s thirst for knowledge has led her to obtain four degrees, and she will soon complete her doctorate in project management.
In fact, when elected, Vangie Williams will be the only member of Congress who holds a degree in federal contracts and acquisitions. Vangie believes that “If you want to fix what’s broken in Washington, you need someone who actually understands how it works -- or more often, doesn’t work.”
More important to her than her career, however, is her family. Vangie has been married to Glenn Williams for 25 years. Glenn, a small business owner in King George, is also a professional bowler. Vangie and Glenn have six daughters spanning in age from 11 to 22, and understand all too well the challenges facing families every day. From making sure that their kids are getting the education they need, to getting them to soccer practice, to making sure dinner gets on the table, they know what moms and dads across the 1st District know: life is always busy, often difficult, and Washington could do a whole lot more to make it easier for families.
Families are forced to make common sense decisions around their kitchen table every day and Vangie believes that it’s time for the federal government to make the same kind of decisions, and make life easier for America’s families.
