Denny Daugherty is a past president of the Prince William Committee of 100 (C100) and current Program Committee Chairman. He is retiring this summer after 45 years as a federal government employee, most of them in a legal capacity.
He grew up in Louisiana and received his undergraduate and law degrees at Louisiana State University. He and his family worship at Spriggs Road Presbyterian Church.
Denny has lived in the Brentsville district of this county since 1987 and his three children graduated from Brentsville High School. He served on the Library Board as an appointee of several county supervisors from that district. He has been an officer of the Prince William and Manassas Family Alliance most of the 20 years of its association with the Family Founda-tion of Virginia. That's a group that produces "voter guides," comparing the positions of competing candidates in both general elections and party nominating processes.
Denny has been an active Republican since he was 15 years old. He has just been elected to chair the Prince William County Republican Commit-tee, after representing it on the party's 10th Congressional District Commit-tee.
When the Prince William Committee of 100 celebrated its 30th anniversary, former presidents were asked to describe their experience. Denny noted that it was the best way he had found to get to know people with whom he disagreed on issues of the day and to learn their perspectives on matters under consideration at the state and local level. He enjoys it so much he is still involved 20 years after first joining.
