There are three seats up for election: North Point, Lake Anne/Tall Oaks and an At-Large Seat.
Lake Anne/Tall Oaks Director Eve Thompson, the current board secretary, will run for re-election, but as an At-Large candidate. Opposing her will be newcomers John Bowman, who has been active in RA’s Transportation Advisory Committee and the Reston Citizens Association, and financial professional April Tan.
Ken Knueven, former RA Board President, currently fills the At-Large seat up for election. He cannot run again because RA Bylaws prohibit more than two consecutive three-year terms by board members.
North Point District Director Dannielle LaRosa, who was appointed to the board in summer 2014 when former North Point Director Tim Cohn resigned for health reasons. She was elected by North Point district residents in 2o15 to fill the remaining one-year of the term. She is now running unopposed for the full three-year term. LaRosa currently serves as the RA Board Treasurer.
Running unopposed for the Lake Anne/Tall Oaks District Director is Sherri Hebert, who has been active in the citizens group watching Tall Oaks redevelopment.
While two of this year’s races are uncontested, a 10-percent quorum is required to make the election official, RA says.
Voting will take place electronically and through mail in March. Results of the election will be announced at the Annual Members’ Meeting on April 12.
Look for profiles of candidates on Reston Now soon. Meanwhile, read their candidate statements.
