Reston Association 50The Reston Association Board of Directors on Thursday selected Dannielle LaRosa to fill the remained of the North Point Director term.

The seat became vacant when North Point Director Tim Cohn resigned in May for personal reasons.

LaRose will represent North Point until the next RA election in Spring 2015. An election for a new North Point director will then be held to finish the rest of Cohn’s term, which expires in Spring 2016.

Under RA rules, the board can interview and select a replacement when a director leaves before a term is finished.

LaRosa is a financial analyst who said she will bring a critical eye to RA expenses, reserves and revenue generation. She is also a mother of four whose children have taken part in a wide variety of RA activities and camps over the years.

Other candidates were IT business owner Walter Constantine; Former Fairfax County Planning Commission member Walter Alcorn; and retired attorney and 40-year Reston resident Mike Shaw.

    A minor technical point. Ms. LaRosa was appointed to hold the North Point District Director seat until the next election in March 2015 and the person elected for the post in that election takes office for the remainder of Tim Cohn’s term until April 2016. The election in March of 2016 will be for a full three year term. The appointment by the Board is controlled by the Reston Master Deed, not the Bylaws.
