Reston Association board of directors fills another unexpected vacancy

For the second time in the past month, Reston Association’s Board of Directors has appointed a new board member — a process that is typically conducted with a member-driven election.

Margaret Perry fills the Hunters Woods/Dogwood seat that was vacated by Caren Anton in May. Perry, a government contractor, beat out candidates David Crocker, Radhika Gupta Murari, and Carol Nahorniak, who also vied for the position.

The nine-member board has seen two vacancies after members elected three new board members in April. When newly elected board members were officially sworn in on April 13, board member Tim Dowling unexpectedly resigned. The next month, the board appointed John Farrell to take his position.

Both Perry and Farrell will only serve until April of next year, after which the seat will be eligible for at-large voting. The appointed directors also have the option to run in next year’s election.

Perry has lived in the Hunters Woods area since 2010. Her priorities include ensuring all people’s voices are heard and active engagement with members.

“All community members should feel that they not only have a voice, but that their voice is heard,” Perry wrote in a statement.
