Walter L. Alcorn served his first term as Hunter Mill District Supervisor 2020-2023 and was elected to a second term beginning Jan. 1, 2024.

He has lived in the Hunter Mill District for almost 30 years, first in the Town of Vienna and, since 1996, in Reston where he resides with his wife Kristina. They have a son Ryan 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. After graduating, he worked for the Providence District Supervisor for four years. Shortly thereafter he 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.

More recently, during his first term on the Board of Supervisors, he led the update to the Reston Comprehensive Plan, which was approved by the Board in 2023. He is also a champion of improved pedestrian/bicycle safety, affordable housing, and the public safety co-responder model.  In his second term he chairs the Board’s Older Adults Committee. He also serves on numerous regional commissions and boards, including the regional COG Transportation Planning Board, the Northern Virginia Transportation Commission (NVTC) and the Northern Virginia Regional Commission. He chairs the NVTC WMATA Committee and is an alternate member of the WMATA Board.
