Alanna Mensing Councilmember, Manassas Park City Council 2018-present

A Manassas Park resident since 2009, I love and admire this city I call home. As Councilmember I work hard to bring us through these fiscally challenging years without compromising the integrity of our city. My goal is to help Manassas Park become a destination for people to live and work.

My husband and I moved here after he left the military. We were attracted to the small city feel close to DC. We immediately became involved in our community, and I joined the Architectural Review Board for the Blooms Crossing Homeowner’s Association where I served as the chairwoman. I also served on the Manassas Park City School Board for one term, prior to being elected to City Council in 2018.

I have taught music lessons to the children of Manassas Park ever since moving here. I love the diversity and the passion our children have.

I have two young boys at home, and my full time job is currently taking care of and homeschooling them. I hope to instill in them a sense of service and teach them to give back to their community.

I am eager to work together with my neighbors to find ways to improve our city. I look forward to serving Manassas Park!
