There will be three seats available on the Reston Community Center Board of Governors come October. Bill Keefe, William Penniman and Vicky Wingert are coming to the end of their three-year terms.
Board seats are filled by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, with guidance from the results of a community preference poll. Candidacy filing for the poll is next month.
Anyone interested in becoming a member of the Board of Governors must complete a statement of candidacy between Aug. 1-15. The three outgoing board members have the option to nominate themselves again.
All residents of Reston’s District 5 can vote in the poll, which will run from Sept. 8-29. A candidate forum will take place Sept. 18. The Board of Supervisors will then make its appointments in October.
All residents of District 5 who are 18 or older are eligible to apply. For more information, visit the Reston Community Center website or call 703-476-4500.
