Bill Bouie/Courtesy RCCReston resident Bill Bouie will be honored with The Katherine K. Hanley Public Service Award the 2016 Board of Supervisors’ Breakfast on April 22.

The award, sponsored by Leadership Fairfax, is given annually to a member of the community who exemplifies service above self and has had a positive impact on Fairfax County. The award is named for former Board Supervisor and current Secretary of the Commonwealth, Katherine K. Hanley.

Bouie, a telecommunications executive, serves as the current chairman of the Fairfax County Park Authority Board. He has also been involved in numerous Reston and county organizations, including Reston Little League, Wolf Trap Center for the Performing Arts, Public Links, Inc., the Reston Community Center Board of Governors, Reston Hospital Center Board of Trustees and the Initiative for Public Art Reston.

The event begins at 7:30 a.m. at the Fairview Park Marriott in Falls Church and will feature a networking breakfast; a state of the county address by Supervisor Chair Sharon Bulova; and a panel discussion with the supervisors and the presentation of the Hanley Award.

Tickets and sponsorships may be purchased through Leadership Fairfax’s website.

Leadership Fairfax’s Board of Supervisors Breakfast brings together over 300 community and business leaders annually, and helps citizens learn about issues impacting the county and the Board of Supervisors, says CEO and President Karen Cleveland.

    Mr. Bouie has also been a central figure in the use of carcinogenic tire crumb as a material on turf fields. As leaders in Montgomery County unanimously banned the material, Mr. Bouie has gone out of his way to pretend there is no risk to our kids. Meanwhile, The EPA is calling for a Federal investigation and stating that existing studies are not comprehensive – a position in direct conflict with Mr. Bouie’s position. Also, please see the attached testimony from Mount Sinai, which unequivocally states children should not play on carcinogenic tire crumb turf fields. Mr. Bouie is directly involved with exposing a generation of Fairfax kids to carcinogens and toxins. He should not be celebrated: https://www.facebook.com/BanCrumbRubberFairfax/posts/1530405850588723

    Mr. Bouie is also well known as the outspoken advocate for putting BOTH the Reston Recreation Center paid for by Restonians in STD#5 AND the Bark-Bark Dog Park in Baron Cameron Park, ignoring both neighborhood and community pleas for more community-friendly alternatives. Specifically, the ultimate solution is creating a regional (County standard) rec center in Town Center North and hopefully the dog park can be moved to Lake Fairfax County Park. Don’t worry, Bouie is and will be in the way of the dog park move and Hudgins bailed him out on the rec center.
