Residents of Small Tax District 5 (Reston) are asked to cast votes in the annual poll to fill open seats on the RCC Board of Governors.
The community will elect three, three-year positions as the terms of board members Bill Penniman, Cathy Vivona and Vicky Wingert are expiring.
Penniman and Wingert are running for another term on the board. The other two candidates are William Keefe, who served on the RCC Board from 2008-13, and Linda Singer, a longtime Reston resident who has been active in many local and county organizations. Watch for candidate profiles on Reston Now soon.
There will be a candidates forum on Monday, Sept. 8 at 7 p.m. at RCC Hunters Woods.
Voting begins on Sept. 12. Each property in small district 5 will receive a ballot in the mail. Mail-in ballots must be received by the counting agent (a pre-addressed envelope is provided with the ballot; postage is required) no later than 5 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 2. Walk-in and online ballots must be received by 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 3.
The RCC Board of Governors guides policy, budgeting and programming for the community center, which has locations at Hunters Woods and Lake Anne. The board may also authorize in the next year a community referendum for a new $30 million indoor pool and recreation center. The board has been studying the feasibility of such a project for several years.
