Ron Meyer was elected to represent the Broad Run District on the Board of Supervisors in November 2015. He serves on the Board’s Transportation and Land Use Committee. He represents Loudoun on the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments’ (COG) Air Quality Committee and the National Capital Region Transportation Planning Board.
As an executive for MediaDC, the parent company of the Washington Examiner and Weekly Standard, Meyer manages a millennial-focused publication, Red Alert Politics. He frequently appears on Fox News, Fox Business Network, CNN, and other media outlets as an expert on politics, business, and youth issues.
Before joining MediaDC, Meyer ran his own public relations firm in Northern Virginia, Springboard Media Strategies LLC. At age 21, his first job after college was as spokesman for one of the largest youth-related non-profits in the country, Young America’ s Foundation (YAF), based in Herndon. While working at YAF, Meyer earned national media attention with the creation of the Youth Misery Index (YMI) to highlight growing poverty among young Americans. YMI combined youth unemployment, average graduating student loan debt and national debt per capita.
Meyer graduated from Principia College, a parochial school in Elsah, Illinois. He played three sports – football, baseball and rugby – and majored in political science. During college, Meyer interned for Fox News, the Christian Science Monitor, Radio America and the National Journalism Center. While in high school, Meyer won the St. Louis Post Dispatch Scholar Athlete Award.
Ron and his wife, Celia, live in Ashburn with their daughter, Lincoln.
