Newcomer Sherri Hebert will join experienced Reston Association Directors Eve Thompson and Dannielle LaRosa on the RA Board.

Results from the 2016 RA Board of Directors elections were released last night. Overall voter turnout was about 15 percent, which is typical for a board election.

Hebert, who has been active in Bentana Cluster and the citizen concern over the redevelopment of Tall Oaks Village Center, will represent Lake Anne Tall Oaks. She ran unopposed for the three-year seat previously held by Thompson.

Thompson, a Realtor, ran against two opponents for the At-Large seat, defeating John Bowman and April Tan.

LaRosa, a finance professional, has represented North Point on the board since 2014. She was first appointed to replace Tim Cohn, who resigned for personal reasons. She then ran and was elected last year to fill out the one year remaining on Cohn’s term. The 2016 vote fills a three-year term.

Here are the official voting stats:


  • Eve Thompson – 2,659
  • John Bowman – 2,218
  • April Tan – 1,136

Lake Anne/Tall Oaks

Sherri Hebert – 1,395 votes

North Point 

Dannielle LaRosa – 1,427 votes

The new board, which also includes sitting directors Ray Waddell (At-Large), Ellen Graves (Apartment Owners), Julie Bitzer (South Lakes), Lucinda Shannon (Hunters Woods/Dogwood), Jeff Thomas (At-Large), Michael Sanio (At-Large), will meet Wednesday, where it will elect new officers.
