The Board of Governors is a nine-member group that is responsible for oversight and guidance of RCC, which serves the people of Small Tax District 5 (Reston).
Candidates must be residents of Small District 5, age 18 or older, and complete a candidacy statement in order to have their names placed on the Preference Poll ballot.
The RCC Preference Poll is a community event held annually to select members to serve on the board. The Board of Governors establishes the overall policies for RCC priorities for its programs and budget.
There has been increased focus on RCC the last few years as it seeks to expand by building a new 50-meter indoor pool in Reston. That proposal been met with mixed reaction from the community.
This year’s Preference Poll will fill three positions for three-year terms. The terms of board members Bill Penniman, Cathy Vivona and Vicky Wingert are expiring.
Online and mail-in balloting and walk-in voting will be available Sept. 12 to Oct. 3 until p.m. Mail-in ballots must be received by Oct. 2 at p.m. There will be a candidates forum on Sept. 8 at RCC Hunters Woods.
