At-Large Reston Association Board Director Eve Thompson Steps Down

Eve Thompson, At-Large member of the Reston Association Board of Directors, has resigned from her position.

Thompson provided formal notice of the decision Tuesday in an email to CEO Cate Fulkerson. She said her resignation is effective immediately.

“It has been a privilege to serve the community that has given me so much,” Thompson said. “A wonderful place to raise my family, a community of friends and neighbors and even a livelihood which is keeping me very busy these days. I believe that it is now best for me to focus my energies in an area where I can make a positive contribution.”

Thompson was first elected to the board in 2013, representing the Lake Anne/Tall Oaks District. She was re-elected in 2016 to an At-Large seat. She served as the board’s secretary from 2015 to April 2017.

The process to fill Thompson’s seat on the board will be discussed at the June 22 meeting of the Board of Directors. Thompson’s unexpired term runs through April 2019.

  • Jenny Gibbers

    Thanks for investing in Reston.

  • 40yearsinreston

    Other vested interest real estate professionals should follow her out fhe door

  • LeftPolitico

    Good for her. Did she update her Conflict of Interest Statement before leaving?

    • cRAzy

      Better for us.

  • John Farrell

    So the following Tetra advocates are now off the Board: Knueven, Graves, Thomas & Thompson. Even Rick Byers is selling his house.

    Thanks for the memories, folks.

      Who’s left from the Tetra crowd? We still have Wedell, right? He was one of the most vociferous, bombastic advocates of Tetra. And although not technically on the board, I would lump Chadwick and Fulkerson into the must-go group.

      • John Farrell

        Left on the Board from the Tetra crowd:

        Sanio who term limits out in April 2018.

        Don’t forget Julie Bitzer who strongly endorsed Tetra during her campaign for South Lakes rep and supported the purchase after she got on the Board.

        And we have to have a special place of honor for John McBride who ordered that bizarre appraisal to justify the inflated purchase price.

        • CitizenComment

          The appraisal was the issue. It does not seem that our interests were protected or represented throughout that entire transaction. If we are paying people a lot of money to represent our interests and they are not, then why are we still paying them?

          • John Farrell

            If they weren’t protecting the interests of RA’s membership, whose interests were they protecting?

          • CitizenComment

            Well the owner of the property made out pretty good…

      • Living large

        Don’t forget all the lemmings who voted YES on the purchase.

    • JoeInReston

      Should Dannielle LaRosa be on that list?

      • John Farrell

        Yup

    • Conservative Senior

      His home has sold.

      • John Farrell

        So after getting RA to buy that eyesore, and spend gobs of cash to dress it up, he cashes in and skips town leaving the rest of us to pay-off the bonds.

        Nice, very nice

        Did he even send Cate et al a thank you note? I know I didn’t get one.

    “The damage they do outlives them…”

    ’nuff said

  • Rational Reston

    So after researching the definition of “Conflict of Interest”….

  • Greg

    We just can’t imagine why she quit.

    • John Farrell

      Here’s a clue:

      Ed Abbott’s complaint about the failure to disclose the conflict of interest was to be heard by the RA Board at its next meeting!

  • Damon Feldman

    Eve’s improved the community in more ways than one. I’m sure it was a lot of work to server on the board for as long as she did.
