Reston Association’s Board of Directors filled an at-large seat vacated by board member Glenn Small in November. 

At a Thursday (Jan. 26) night meeting, the board voted to select Travis Johnson — who has lived in Reston for a total of 14 years — over competitors Trevor Grywatch and Jeff Spurrier.

Johnson said he wants to ensure that Reston remains a good place to raise children.

“I love it here, we love it here and my goal is to help Reston remain a fantastic place to raise my family,” Johnson said at the meeting. 

He has two daughters: a high school senior and a sixth-grader. 

Johnson said he hopes to leverage his experience at large consulting firms to better RA as an organization. 

“What I’d like to do with the board is to help identify processes that don’t work and identify processes that do work,” he said. 

Johnson ran for a seat in 2018. Two other candidates for the seat removed their names from consideration prior to Thursday’s meeting. 

Four other seats remain open for the next election, which takes place in March.
