Reston Association has announced a full slate of candidates for the upcoming Board of Directors’ election.

Voting begins at 5 p.m. on March 1, with many available seats contested this year. A 10% quorum is required for uncontested races.

Five seats are open for the month-long election: three at-large director seats, Hunters Woods/Dogwood District director, and apartment owners’ representative.

The apartment owners’ representative seat is elected by apartment owners, so that is not a seat that the general membership votes for, according to RA spokesperson Mike Leone.

The following is a breakdown for the race:

At-Large Director (3-year term):
John Farrell
Margaret Perry
Robert (Jeff) Spurrier
Gene Zapfel

At-Large Director (2-year term): 
Trevor Grywatch
Jalal Mapar

At-Large Director (1-year term):
Michael Brandland
Robert Petrine

Hunters Woods/Dogwood District Director (3-year term):
Travis Johnson

Apartment Owner’s Representative (3-year term):
Michael Collins

Members can also submit mailed ballots. The nine-member board oversees the association’s goals and policy matters, along with the passage of RA’s biennial budget.

Johnson was recently selected by the board to fill a seat that was vacated this past fall.
