VOTE! Tuesday, November 5, 2024 Mayor Kenneth Cooper Alexander

In pursuit of innovation and resilience, our city is committed to addressing various challenges. We envision a future coastal community that thrives with economic growth, strengthened connections, reduced poverty, lower greenhouse gas emissions, revitalized neighborhoods, and improved public health. Our vision reflects our unwavering dedication to creating an innovative, resilient, and economically flourishing urban environment.


Kenneth Cooper Alexander, president of the family-owned Metropolitan Funeral Service, is a Norfolk native who has earned several appointed and elected public positions during his public service career, which began more than two decades ago.


Listening will be a hallmark of my tenure as mayor. I want to help turn best ideas ― from wherever they come ― into best practices. Just as our citizens need our city government for services, City Hall needs to enthusiastically welcome the participation of citizens.


Volunteering for our campaign is an incredibly rewarding experience that allows individuals to actively engage in the democratic process and make a tangible impact on the future of their community.
