Have You Submitted Your Statement of Candidacy for the RA Board?

RA Board application.jpgDon't get enough meetings at your day job? Worried about people smoking e-cigarettes on trails, outside? Well, it's not too late to submit a statement of candidacy for the open at-large seat on the Reston Board of Directors. You have until October 21 to explain your hopes and dreams qualifications and goals; the RA Board will then invite "qualified candidates" to meet with them at their Oct. 24 meeting. The board will ultimately appoint someone to finish the term vacated by Donna Miller Rostant, who had to leave the board last month after it chose not to add her non-RA property to the friendly confines of our earth-toned community. Earlier this year, the board appointed Ellen Graves to complete the term of Hunters Woods/Dogwood board member Cheryl Beamer, who resigned in May, so it's been a busy year on that front.

It's also an important time for the RA board, what with having to hire a new CEO and attempting to play an active role in the master planning process that will guide development for years to come.

What's funny is that while five people vied for an appointment to the last vacated seat, the elections for three open seats earlier this year were all uncontested. We hope that's not the case this time around, so apply early and often kids, the end.
