Former Marine and High School Teacher, Kenn Knarr, Announces Chair Run

Knarr will run in the Republican Primary


PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, VA — Earlier today, Kenn Knarr, resident of the Gainesville District, announced he will be seeking the Republican nomination for Chair of the Prince William Board of County Supervisors. Kenn was born and raised in Indiana where he attended Wabash College and played varsity football. After college, Kenn was a high school history teacher and multi-sport coach until he joined the Marine Corps.

Kenn served around the globe with distinction from 1988-2008. As a Marine Mustang, he served in leadership billets from Infantry Squad Leader to Battery Commander. His service included four combat operations and recognition as the Marine Corps Security Forces Marine of the Year (1989) and Marine Corps Command and Control Officer of the Year (2002).

 “I learned at a very young age that serving our country was the right thing to do and critical to protecting our individual freedoms and way of life. The Corps transformed me into the man I am today. I’m running for the Republican nomination to bring a sense of civility, positivity, and peaceful stability back to our community. Everyone should be respected and have an opportunity to prosper," said Knarr. 

 “As a fiscal conservative, I’m running to stand strong for our party’s traditional principles. We are the party of lower taxes, personal property rights, and government accountability. True Republicans have traditionally fostered and nurtured a business-friendly environment that creates jobs, grows a healthy commercial tax base, and lowers the tax burden on residents. Along these lines, I believe we should immediately repeal the Meals Tax which is hurting so many small business owners and their patrons.”

“As Chair, I will collaboratively seek and aggressively pursue all efforts to modernize and upgrade our older schools. Our children’s education is the ultimate investment in our future. We must adequately compensate our educators, first responders, mental health professionals, and county staff for their critical contributions to our county. I will also focus on helping our large veteran community. However, all of these pursuits cost money and must be implemented in a fiscally responsible manner. When I take office, I will immediately call for a top-down analysis of all county programs to review their cost and effectiveness.”

Kenn concluded by saying, “I’m not a professional politician, I’m a Marine. It’s time for a fresh, new voice in our county government.”
