MCLEAN, VA — The McLean Community Center, funded by the Dranesville Small District 1A tax district, is set to begin the election process for the 2020-2021 governing board. Candidate petition packets will be available at the center beginning at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 21.

The 11-member board is made up of nine adults and two high school students. It is tasked with setting policies and providing oversight for the center's programs and facilities. The board also adopts a budget for the McLean Community Center, which is sent to the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors for approval. The budget set the real estate tax for the McLean Community Center tax district, which is on top of the real estate tax all Fairfax County property owners pay. The current rate for the McLean Community Center tax district is 2.3 cents per $100.

This year's election features three adult seats and one youth member each from the McLean High School boundary area and Langley High School boundary area. Adult candidates must be at least 18 years old as of McLean Day (Saturday, May 16). Youth candidates must be 15-17 years old as of McLean Day and live in the boundaries of McLean or Langley High Schools — the youth candidates do not have to be students of these schools.

Adult board members serve three-year terms, and students serve one-year terms.

The three adult candidates who receive the highest vote counts and the top youth candidate for the McLean and Langley boundaries will be elected. Completed petition packets for candidacy are due to the McLean Community Center by 5 p.m. on March 13.

Residents of the Dranesville Small District 1A tax district can vote in the election on McLean Day, Saturday, May 16, from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Absentee voting will also be held from March 18 to May 13 at the McLean Community Center, 1234 Ingleside Avenue, and The Old Firehouse Center, 1440 Chain Bridge Road. Adults vote for adult candidates only, and youths vote for youth candidates only. The election results must be certified by the Fairfax County board of Supervisors.
