RCA Elections: Mills Re-Elected President, Six Other Directors Chosen

The Reston Citizens Association today announced the re-election of Colin Mills as President and the selection of six other Directors.

Mills scored a solid victory over Gary Lee Thomas, a current RCA Board Director who will retain his seat as an At-Large director.  Mills won 80 % of the vote for President, in the election held from 26 June to 10 July.

John Hanley, currently RCA Vice President, was re-elected as one of the two Directors up for election from the Hunters Woods District.  He has also served as a co-chair of the Reston 2020 committee.

Incumbent At-Large Director Tammi Petrine was re-elected to the Board.  She also serves as co-chair of the Reston 20/20 Committee, focused on Reston planning and the Dulles Metrorail project.

Gary Walker was re-elected to the Board as Director from the Lake Anne/Tall Oaks/Town Center District.

Constance Hartke joined the Board as a new Director from Hunters Woods.  She has been active in Rescue Reston and various Reston runners groups.

Joe Leighton also joined the board as a new Director from South Lakes.  Joe is a former Reston Association Director who still serves as RA Secretary.

Although no one formally filed for North Point Director, a spirited write-in campaign was conducted.  George Kain, a former RCA director, won over economist and activist Stephen Canner.

The new Board will be officially seated at its next meeting on July 22, 7:30 PM at RCC Hunters Woods.
