Meet Aaron Rouse.

Aaron was raised in Friendship Village within the historic Seatack community. He graduated from First Colonial High School and went on to attend Virginia Tech, playing football on a scholarship for the Hokies. After college, Aaron was drafted in the NFL to play for the Green Bay Packers.

After a successful career in the NFL, Aaron decided to return home to serve his community. He coached boys football at Virginia Beach Middle School, started a local non-profit to serve young students in need, and today serves as a mentor to many student-athletes.  Aaron’s grandfather served in the Army and taught him the principle of leadership by example – not to talk about change but to be the change.

Aaron plans to bring a new generation of leadership to City Council and provide a fresh voice to local government – one that lauds service & leadership and appreciates the full fabric of Virginia Beach. He wants to see his hometown become a model coastal city for all who live here and those that visit.
