Lawrence Webb is an academic administrator and politician from Falls Church, Virginia. He was elected in 2008 to Falls Church City Council, becoming the first openly gay, African-American elected official in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Born in Kenbridge, Virginia, Webb earned a B.A. in Mass Communications and a graduate Certificate in Public Management from Shenandoah University, where he was the first African-American elected president of the Student Government Association.
Former Governor of Virginia Mark Warner appointed Webb to the board of the Department of Correctional Education in 2004, a position he still holds. A resident of Falls Church since 2004, Webb had served three years on the city's Recreation & Parks Advisory Board prior to his election to city council.
