About Karla Justice
Karla Justice was born and raised in the Occoquan District, attending elementary, middle, and high school in the County’s Public School system. Karla graduated from George Mason University where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Politics and Business. Today, Karla is a single mother raising her family in the Occoquan District and operates local small businesses.
Having spent her entire life on the Occoquan and Potomac rivers, Karla has been a longtime advocate for the Occoquan watershed and surrounding environment. Karla supports smart growth, citing a need to keep pace with the county’s evolution and increasing population, with particular focus on improving local infrastructure and roads, while also completing environmental due diligence and protecting the Occoquan Watershed – the main supplier of fresh drinking water for over a million Prince William and Fairfax households.
Karla is running to represent the Occoquan District on the Prince William County Board of County Supervisors. Her motivation to run surrounds the simple idea that local government should be a voice that residents can count on – thus her campaign slogan “A voice you can count on”.
Karla’s main priorities for her community are to continue to protect the local environment, while facilitating smart growth; decreasing the cost of living for families and small businesses; reducing crime, which is up 70%; and fixing the roads along the Old Bridge corridor, many of which are rated among the worst in Northern Virginia.
Karla Justice looks forward to uniting the Occoquan District behind these ideas, and working hard to serve and represent the best interests of the community she loves dearly.
