Meet the County: Supervisor Marty Nohe, Coles District

In this series of posts, we’ll introduce you to local decision makers and policy-changers.  The goal isn’t to be political, and doesn’t indicate an endorsement, but is rather to help you learn the faces and positions in Prince William County who you can go to for help, or with your concerns.  You’ll notice the question is always the same, “Tell me what you love about Prince William County”, and at the end of the post, you’ll find a job description of the person listed.  I will not post from people during campaign season (unless it’s someone who’s mid-term and not currently running for re-election).  Hope this helps you know our county better!!

So tell us, Supervisor Nohe, what do you love about Prince William County?

My favorite thing about Prince William County is our people.  There are a lot of things to love about Prince William County, but none of them mean anything without the citizens who volunteer in our community, help out at our schools, participate in the public decision making process,
and invest in our future.  During the last few years, the whole nation has gone through some difficult times, but few communities have recovered more quickly or more strongly than Prince William County, and I know that our success comes from the hard work and pride that the residents of PWC have in their neighborhoods and in our county.

Where is your district? 
The Coles District is the most geographically central district in the county, and includes most of the neighborhoods in the Independent Hill, Lake Jackson and Signal Hill areas, the Yorkshire and Loch Lomond Communities, several neighborhoods in Dale City, the neighborhoods that border the Northern edge of the City of Manassas and small portions of Nokesville east of Broad Run.

What is the role of a supervisor? 
As County Supervisor, I represent the residents of the Coles District on the County Board and help craft policy that is in the best interest of our communities.  But perhaps more importantly, my office serves as the point of access to an array of County services for the residents of the district, as well as providing a source of information about what is happening in the County.  We send out a monthly community newsletter to let folks know about upcoming events and about county agencies and
policies; we host periodic community meetings on an array of topics to keep people informed; and we field numerous phone calls and e-mails every day to help residents navigate their local government.

How can people get in touch with you? 
The best way to get in touch with me or my staff directly is either by e-mail at for me personally or at to reach my entire office staff, or by calling us at 703-792-4620.  Residents can also visit my website at, where they can sign up for my monthly newsletter and find links with contacts to a number of County agencies.  We also just launched a new Facebook page “Office of Supervisor Marty Nohe”.
