FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
RESTON, VA — Richard Titus, Ph.D., has withdrawn from the Reston Community Center (RCC) 2015 Preference Poll. In a September 17, 2015 e-mail to RCC Executive Director Leila Gordon, Dr. Richard Titus requested his name be removed from consideration, noting “I don’t conclude that serving if elected would be the best use of my time.”
Titus’ name cannot be removed from the online ballot since voting has already begun. The online ballot has therefore been updated to indicate “withdrawn.” The remaining four candidates (Karol Anderson, William G. Bouie, Lisa Sechrest-Ehrhardt, and Gerald Zavala) participated in a Candidate Forum on the evening of September 17, 2015. Preference Poll voting continues through Friday, October 2 at 5:00 p.m. for walk-in and online ballots; Mail-in ballots must be received by the counting agent no later than 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 1.
The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors established the RCC Board of Governors to represent the interests of Reston (SD 5) residents and businesses in developing policy and providing financial oversight for RCC. Board appointments are made by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors after participants have made their preferences known in the annual poll. The 2015 Preference Poll seeks community guidance to fill three 3-year positions.
