Edward Abraham Joachim (March 3, 1871-June 22, 1941), was actively engaged in business in Charlottesville for over 40 years, during which time he took keen interest in civic affairs.
In the 1922 election, E. A. Joachim, John R. Morris and J. Y. Brown were chosen members of the first board of commissioners under the commission form of government in Charlottesville (1922-1928). They were each re-elected in the 1924 election and 1926 election; serving six years as members of the 3-member city council. Joachim was president of that body during the 1926-1927 term.
In the 1928 election, he won one of the five new seats on the Charlottesville City Council (1928-1930); Joachim was one of the top vote-getters for the three four-year term seats in a field of eight candidates that year.
Joachim was known to have had Republican leaning, but he was not elected to Council as an announced member of the Grand Old Party.
