        are you gonna run or just complain when something happens you don’t like?

        • 32yrsinreston

          Having people actually vote would be a great first step. Having those same voters educate themselves on who is running would be even better.
          However, complaining after the fact is the easiest.

            Thank you I’m just trying to do my part.

          I would make for a poor RA director, so I am going to just complain (and of course vote). That is the best course of action for me and for the people of Reston. What would you have me do?

  • Someone pls call the FBI

    I dont think it matters because none of the candadites are sporting any arm wrestling equipment nor are they socially agile enough to counter the brute force of the corrupt and criminal forces that remain on the board. This also applies to candidate wunderkind.

    No wonder the good folks left or quit!
