    Apathy at its worst:

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

    Reston Community Center – This special tax district operates on a levy of $0.047 per $100 of assessed value on residential, commercial, and industrial properties located in the district. http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/dta/realestatetax_specialtaxdis.htm
