Four Will Challenge Reston Association’s Sigle for At-Large Seat

Reston AssociationFour candidates will challenge Reston Association Board of Directors Vice President Andy Sigle for his At-Large seat in the 2014 RA Board of Directors elections.

One of the challengers is a familiar name to Restonians and to Reston Now readers — Colin Mills. Mills is the president of the Reston Citizens Association. He also runs a regular column on Reston Now.

Also seeking the three-year At-Large term: Jeffery Thomas, a resident of Reston for 43 years who served five years as Reston Little League president; Mason Miller, who has lived in Reston for 38 years and currently runs a web application development firm here; and Michael Mackert, a law enforcement official who says he will advocate for smart growth.

There are two candidates for the one-year At-Large vacancy created when  Donna Rostant resigned in 2013 after she moved out of Reston Association’s boundaries and was unable to get her new home added to the association. RA by-laws state directors must be RA members. The seat had been temporarily filled by RA secretary John Higgins.

Gerald Valloy, a former CEO of Reston Association and a member of the Reston Master Plan Special Study Task Force, will seek that seat. The other candidate is Rachel Muir, a science advisor for the United States Geological Survey who has been active in environmental programs.

Only one candidate filed to run for the Hunters Woods/Dogwood Spot: Lucinda Shannon, a Reston resident since 2007 who is interested in smart and sustainable growth for the community.

There is also an open spot for the Apartment Owners Director. RA CEO Cate Fulkerson says the final application deadline for candidates for that spot is Feb. 14.

Reston Now will profile each candidate as election season nears.

Ballots will be mailed to RA members. Elections will open by mail and online in early March. Results will be announced in early April.
