Five Candidates Will Seek RA Board Spots

Three in the race should be familiar to Reston Association members.

Reston Association's 2013 Board of Directors elections will feature some familiar faces.

RA president Ken Knueven will run for re-election to the board - but this time as an at-large candidate. Knueven is currently finishing his first term as the Lake Anne/Tall Oaks Director.

Knueven will run against John Farrell, a longtime Reston resident and land use attorney who ran for an at-large seat in 2012. Farrell has been involved in several community organizations, including RA’s Parks and Planning Advisory Committee, youth sports leagues and the Hunter Mill Democrats.

Realtor Eve Thompson, who also ran for an at-large seat in 2012, will run unopposed for the Lake Anne/Tall Oaks seat. Thompson is on the board of the Reston Historic Trust and also runs the Saturday craft market at Lake Anne Plaza.

Two new candidates will run for the Northpoint seat, as director Mike Collins is not running for re-election.

Timothy Cohn, a water scientist and former Reston Runners president, is one candidate. The other is Larry Dunn, a retired soldier and corrections officer who is active in his neighborhood association.

Voting begins on March 4 and results are announced in April. Watch for more info about the candidates on Reston Patch.

If Mr. Knueven wins the at large seat, wouldn't that be 5 members who live north of the toll road and only 3 who live south? Seems a little unbalanced since most RA members live south of the toll road.

Actually, there are four Directors from South Reston returning to the RA Board this Spring: Amanda Andere, Cheryl Beamer, Richard Chew, and Andy Sigle.
