Jason Miyares


In November 2021, Jason Miyares (pronounced me-YAR-ez) was elected the 48th Attorney General of Virginia. Prior to this position, Miyares served in the Virginia House of Delegates for three terms, and before that, worked as an Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney in Virginia Beach. A product of Virginia public schools, Jason graduated with a Bachelor’s in Business Administration from James Madison University and a Juris Doctorate from the College of William and Mary School of Law.

As Attorney General, Miyares has been focused on improving public safety, strengthening economic growth, combatting the deadly impact of opioids and fentanyl, and protecting Virginians from corporate misconduct. Last year, Miyares launched Operation Ceasefire, a comprehensive approach to fighting violent crime by focusing on intervention and aggressive prosecution of gun crimes.

He kept his promise to Virginians by investigating the 2020 Parole Board, discovering that they broke the law and jeopardized public safety by releasing violent, repeat offenders early with life sentences. Following his investigation into Loudoun County Public Schools, Attorney General Miyares successfully prosecuted the former Loudoun Superintendent for retaliatory firing of a school teacher. Miyares has stood up against the Joe Biden administration time and time again. For example, sued the Biden administration over COVID-era face masks for students, the CDC mask mandate on public travel, as well as the OSHA vaccine mandate. He also sued the Biden administration for their unlawful border policies and illegal immigration.
