Jim Moran represented Virginia’s 8th Congressional District, which included Alexandria, Arlington, Falls Church City, and chunks of Fairfax County, for 14 years from 1991-2015. He was born and raised near Boston, Massachusetts. A stockbroker by trade, Moran was elected to the Alexandria City Council in 1979. He resigned in 1984 after he was charged with a conflict of interest misdemeanor and pleaded no contest in a plea bargain. Still, he ran for mayor of Alexandria and won in 1985. He ran for Congress in 1990 and narrowly defeated incumbent Republican Congressman Stan Parris. He took office on January 3, 1991, and certainly made a name for himself here and around the country – and not in a good way.
