Thirteen Restonians are vying for four seats on Reston Association’s Board of Directors in this year’s election.
The nine-member board is up for a major shake-up this year. Eleven candidates are running for three at-large board seats and two candidates are running for the South lakes District seat for a three-year term.
All races are contested. A breakdown of the candidates, who were certified earlier this week, is below. Seven candidates are running for two at-large seats with three-year terms:
- Aaron Webb
- Colin Meade
- Derrick Watkins
- John Pinkman
- Sridhar Ganesan (appointed as treasurer due to board vacancy)
- Travis G. Johnson
- Ven Iyer
Four candidates are running for another at-large seat for a one-year term:
- Andy Sigle
- David Ballard
- John Bowman (current at-large director)
- Ray Wedell
Tammi Petrine is challenging Julie Bitzer for the South Lakes District seat.
Voting opens on March 5. Results will be announced on April 10.
The nine-member board consists of eight directors, who are elected for three-year, staggered terms by members, and one director elected by apartment owners. Four of the eight directors are district-level representatives while others are elected by the membership at-large.
