The Reston Association welcomed new members to the Board of Directors at Tuesday’s Annual Members’ Meeting.

Jeff Thomas was elected to the three-year At-Large seat, defeating incumbent RA Vice President Andy Sigle and three other candidates.

Also earning a three-year term was Lucinda Shannon, who ran unopposed for the Hunters Woods/Dogwood seat.

Rachel Muir/Credit: Reston AssociationRachel Muir was elected to fill the remaining one year on an At-Large seat vacated by Donna Rostant in 2013.

Ellen Graves, who had been filling the remaining time left on the vacated Hunters Woods/Dogwood seat, ran unopposed for the Apartment Owners’ seat. However, there was a late write-in candidate, Kimberly Miller, also on the ballot.

Reston Association has a full tabulation of voting results on its website.

Ellen Graves/Credit: RA RA Election Committee Chair Ed Robichaud said about 14 percent of member households voted this year. He says his persona goal is to get a 20 percent return. About 1,600 voters opted in to online only for future campaign materials and voting, which will save RA about 2,000. There will be a further effort to encourage the online option, he said.

A new board president, vice president, treasurer and secretary will be appointed by the board on Wednesday.
