Richard Titus, one of five candidates running for three seats on the Reston Community Center Board of Governors, has withdrawn from the 2015 Preference Poll.
“I don’t conclude that serving if elected would be the best use of my time,” he said in an email to RCC Executive Director Lelia Gordon.
The four remaining candidates (incumbents Bill Bouie, Lisa Sechrest-Ehrhardt, Gerald Zavala and newcomer Karol Anderson,) participated in a forum at RCC Hunters Woods on Thursday. Read more about them in their candidates statements.
Titus’ name cannot be removed from the online ballot since voting has already begun. The online ballot has therefore been updated to indicate “withdrawn.”
Preference Poll voting continues through Friday, Oct. 2 at 5:00 p.m. for walk-in and online ballots; Mail-in ballots must be received by the counting agent no later than 5 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 1.
Board appointments are made by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors after participants have made their preferences known in the annual poll.
