dc.description.abstract Though her name is Rose, she didn’t expect a rose garden when she joined the Board of Governors of the Reston Community Center. Jo Ann Rose for the last two years has steadfastly championed a North-side outreach of RCC’s activities, focusing on the Fresh Value space at Lake Anne. Combining the skills of a financial lawyer and artist, she served as RCC’s Treasurer and chaired its Finance Committee. But her advocacy for RCC expansion met bitter obstruction from naysayers who sought to cut back rather than expand RCC’s programs, even favoring the abolition of RCC entirely. She was personally attacked on reports of RCC accounts, which had been approved by Fairfax County, and viciously accused of a disqualifying conflict of interest in supporting activities involving the arts simply because she was an artist.
