Who is Walter Mabe
— I would like to take a few minutes to explain:
- My background.
- Work experience.
- Why I moved back to Warren County four years ago.
- Why I believe I am the best candidate running for the Board of Supervisors from the Shenandoah District.
I was born and raised in Eden, North Carolina, graduating from John Motley Morehead High School there in 1971 at the height of the Vietnam War. I enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps for five years (1971-1976), which is one of the best decisions I ever made. The Corps broke me down physically and emotionally — then built me back up — and that started the process of making me into the man I am today. My speciality in the Marines was aviation electronics.
Following military service, I worked in small electronics shops in northern Virginia for eight years (1976-1985). This was followed by eight years in the banking and mortgage-lending business (1985-1993), specializing in commercial and residential loans. During this time my wife Taffy and I and our two children lived in Front Royal, her hometown. Taffy graduated from Warren County High School in 1971.
In 1993 — after our two children graduated from Warren County High School — Taffy and I moved to Las Vegas where I began a 21-year career (1993-2014) in the telecommunication industry as a project-manager. I worked as a contractor for companies like AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. Based out of Las Vegas, I would work for six to eighteen months at a time on telecommunications projects in California, Hawaii, Utah, Georgia, Florida, Nevada, and other areas.
In 2014 I semi-retired and Taffy and I moved back to Front Royal. We thoroughly enjoy living in Warren County. This is a great county in which to live, work, and raise a family
