Incumbents Retain Seats in Reston Community Center Board Race

Three incumbents have been reelected to Reston Community Center’s Board of Governors

The three board members — William Keefe, William Penniman, and Vicky Wingert — were selected based on the 2020 RCC Preference Poll. The appointments are then made by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors at the request of the Hunter Mill District Supervisor.

Wingert had the most votes (1,623) of the five candidates seeking the position. Keefe received 1,536 votes while Penniman secured 1,190 votes. Lorri Zell trailed behind Penniman with 1,092 votes while Neils Pemberton secured only 376 votes.

Here’s more from RCC on the newly elected board members:

William Penniman has served on the RCC Board since 2006. He previously served as the Board’s secretary and treasurer and is active in the Reston Planning and Zoning Committee, Reston Comprehensive Plan Task Force, former Reston Master Plan Special Study Task Force and the Sierra Club.
