Monday: Reston Association Candidates Forum

Reston Association 50Candidates in Reston Association’s 2015 Board of Directors election will take part in a forum at 7 p.m. on Monday at Reston Association headquarters, 12001 Sunrise Valley Dr.

Some of the questions will be asked by a moderator, but there will also be an opportunity for audience members to submit questions. Want to know how they stand on rising assessments, Reston growth, new facilities or anything else important to you? Now is your chance.

There are seven candidates running for four board seats.

Incumbent South Lakes Director Richard Chew is running for re-election against former RA vice-president Andy Sigle and Rescue Reston advocate Julie Bitzer.

In North Point, Dannielle LaRosa is seeking to remain in the spot for another year. LaRosa was appointed by the RA Board to the North Point Director seat last fall after Tim Cohn stepped down for personal reasons. LaRosa will run against Charles Dorfeuille, who has served on the RA Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee and the Community Engagement Advisory Committee, among others.

The two At-Large candidates are running uncontested. At-large candidates include incumbent Michael Sanio and Ray Wedell, a Realtor and a leader with Rescue Reston.

Reston Now will run Q-and-A posts with each candidate beginning next week.

Voting begins Monday at 5 p.m. and will run through the end of the month. Results will be announced at the Annual Members’ Meeting on April 14.
