ENDORSEMENT: Col. Ulysses “Xerk” White, first Black African American elected Manassas Councilman #BlackHistoryMonth

ENDORSEMENT by my friend who broke barriers and made history in Manassas. Colonel Ulysses X. White “Xerk” was the first African American elected to the city council 1990-1994 and then served again 1996-2000.

Xerk served in the U.S. Army for 30 years. He is devoted to his family, community, and his country.

I am so honored to have known him and served side by side with him during my leadership terms as Area Governor of Rotary District 7610 Group, during my Presidency of the ISCC Inter-service Club Council of Greater Manassas, as an advocate for education and opportunity and now as an elected Councilwoman.

Working with the Scouts recently at our event Bee Houses | The Scouts with George + Theresa Ellis, I learned that Xerk has stepped up to a leadership position to lend his expertise and wisdom to our youth.

Thank you to my friend Xerk.
