Professional & Personal Life

Mr. Victor L. James, Sr., born a native Washingtonian in historical Anacostia, moved to the very fine Town of Capitol Heights, Maryland in the spring of 2002. Strongly driven by God and the institution of the importance of family, he settled down and decided to make Capitol Heights his home. He later married the love of his life, Monica Mayo, and from this union, three wonderful boys were born.

Victor James received a (B. Arch.) degree in architectural engineering from the University of the District of Columbia in 1998. Councilman James is very active in his church and community. Victor served on the deacon’s board since 1989. Victor is also an associate member of the American Institute of Architects, and currently serves on the Town of Capitol Heights Planning and Review Board. He is also the vice-president of the Town of Capitol Heights Boys and Girls Club. After serving as vice-president to the C.H. Boys and Girls Club, he was inspired to serve in a greater capacity. So, he has a mandate to make the Town of Capitol Heights a town of spirituality, prosperity, livability, and opportunity for all. With a vote for James as Councilmember, Capitol Heights will be reinvesting in the Town’s neighborhoods through initiatives, such as Community Safety Plan, “Going Green”, and Infrastructure Development.

The positive changes made with Councilmember Victor James will inspire a new sense of civic pride, responsibility and belonging amongst the citizens of the Town of Capitol Heights.
