Congressman Alex Mooney and his wife, Grace, live in Charles Town in Jefferson County with their three children, Lucas, Cami, and Gabrielle. Their most recent addition to the family, Gabrielle, was born in Charleston, West Virginia. The son of a Cuban refugee and Vietnam veteran, Alex grew up with a deep sense of appreciation for the American ideals of individual freedom and personal responsibility.
Alex’s mother, Lala, was born and raised in Fidel Castro’s Cuba, where she and several other members of her family were thrown into jail for seven weeks because they opposed Fidel Castro’s communistic regime. When she was 21 years old, Lala escaped Cuba and fled to the United States with barely a penny to her name.
Alex’s father, Vincent, was deployed to Vietnam when his wife was pregnant with their first child. He served as an Engineering Captain and was awarded the Bronze Star. Listening to his parents’ inspiring stories, Alex knew from a young age that he wanted to spend his life fighting for the American ideals set forth by our Founding Fathers.
Elected to serve West Virginia’s second congressional district in November 2014, Alex Mooney works to protect West Virginia values, ensuring that our state continues to be a great place to raise a family.
Alex Mooney believes that West Virginia can lead our nation in defending and promoting the all-American values of hard work, faith, and freedom that have made our country great. With a proven record of fighting for conservative values, Alex will continue to defend West Virginia from President Obama’s disastrous policies while encouraging the job creation and prosperity West Virginia deserves.
