Op-Ed: Bitzer Right Pick for South Lakes District

Reston AssociationThis is an Op-Ed from Carol Molesky, Reston resident and South Lakes High School Tennis and Golf Coach. It does not necessarily reflect the opinion of Reston Now.

An important Reston Association election is in its final days of voting.

The South Lakes District is the one to pay attention to. Why? Julie Bitzer is the only candidate out of the three running that can bring fresh ideas and energy to the position.

She comes without a RA history. She is personally invested in the preservation of Reston’s open space — her home borders the Reston National Golf Course.

I know firsthand Julie’s commitment to the community of Reston in its recreational and cultural offerings, to our youth and to development of new programs for our teenagers, and to Reston’s natural green space and trails. I’ve seen in action her ability to bring people together where there’s a win for all parties.

I endorse Julie Bitzer for the South Lakes District and ask that you do as well by casting your vote for her by March 30. Voting is available on RA’s website.
