Supervisor Walter L. Alcorn has lived in the Hunter Mill District for 25 years, first in the Town of Vienna and, since 1996, in Reston where he resides with his wife Kristina, son Ryan - when he isn’t at college - and daughter Delia.
Walter is the son of two educators and was born in Richmond. Walter grew up mostly in Nashville, Tennessee, and Ellsinore, Missouri, before attending the University of Virginia where he protested Apartheid, revived an old satire magazine, and lived in a 19th century dorm room. After Charlottesville, Walter worked in the Providence District supervisor’s office for four years. Shortly thereafter embarked on an environmental career that continues to this day.
Walter has served on several county boards and commissions, most notably the Planning Commission for 16 years, followed by two years on the Park Authority Board. While on the Planning Commission, Walter led numerous initiatives including the school proffer policy, workforce housing policy and Tysons re-planning.
Concurrently with his professional and county activities Walter also coached little league, served as president of the Herndon High School PTSA, and attended the occasional Washington Nationals game.
