Incumbents Are Only Candidates for Reston Community Center Board Seats

There will be three seats available on the Reston Community Center Board of Governors come October, as three incumbents come to the end of their three-year terms.

As the nomination period ended last week, though, only three names are on the list — those three incumbents.

Bill Keefe, William Penniman and Vicky Wingert all applied for another term on the Board. No other candidates stepped forward.

Each of the incumbents have candidate statements posted on the Reston Community Center website.

Board seats are filled by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, with guidance from the results of a community preference poll. Voting in the poll is Sept. 8-29, with the county BoS making its decision the next month. Each property in Small District 5 (SD5) will receive a ballot in the mail. Mail-in ballots must be received by no later than 5 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 28, while walk-in and online ballots can be submitted through 5 p.m. the following day.

Leila Gordon, RCC executive director, said the poll must be held even though there are only incumbents on the list.

“We have no leeway on holding the poll if only the same number of people run as there are seats open,” she said. “Per our Memorandum of Understanding with Fairfax County, we are obligated to have the Poll every year.”

A candidates’ forum will be held Monday, Sept. 18 at 6:30 p.m. at CenterStage at RCC Hunters Woods (2310 Colts Neck Road).
