Another Reston Association board member resigns after election

Caren Anton resigned unexpectedly from RA’s Board of Directors (via Reston Association)

Another Reston Association board member has resigned following April’s uncontested election.

Caren Anton, director of the Hunters Woods/Dogwood District, resigned from RA’s Board of Directors yesterday (Tuesday) morning, leaving the association with another vacant seat to fill.

“This was a very painful decision for me because I care deeply about Reston Association. But life is fleeting, and I want to spend the rest of mine serving in ways that will bring me less frustration and greater satisfaction,” Anton wrote in a statement to FFXnow.

The resignation comes after Tim Dowling left the board shortly after April’s election, which welcomed three new candidates to the board following a months-long tally from members.

Anton served on the board for four years, including a one-year term as RA board president last year.

In a letter to recently elected president Sarah Selvaraj-D’Souza, Anton said it was an “honor” to serve the membership. The cause of her resignation was not available for public dissemination.

Mike Leone, RA’s spokesman, said he was unaware of why Anton resigned. Selvaraj-D’Souza deferred comment to Leone on behalf of the association.

John Farrell was chosen at a board meeting on Thursday (May 26) to fill the seat vacated by Dowling.

RA has once again issued a call for candidates. Members can submit their applications online by 9 a.m. on June 10 for consideration. The board will then appoint a new director to serve on the board until next year’s election.
