Incumbents reelected to Springfield Civic Association board in Bethesda (Photos)
As the election went beyond the 9:00 PM scheduled end for the meeting, most people had to leave before the results were announced - incumbents President Phyllis Edelman, 1st Vice-President Rob Snow, 2nd Vice-President Steve Schultz, Secretary Tom McCann, Treasurer Jason Sartori, Security Chair Colin Helmer, Zoning Chair Pete Salinger, Environment Chair T. Reid Lewis, Traffic Chair Ted Hermes, and Newsletter Editor Amanda Wood were all reelected by sizable margins. Exactly 200 ballots were cast.
Edelman announced that the SCA has hired land-use attorney David Brown to represent the neighborhood's interests related to the Westbard redevelopment. Attorney Michele Rosenfeld is already representing a group of residents who have sued Montgomery County over alleged violations of County and State law by the County Council and Planning Board in approving the Westbard sector plan.
