The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors named Kiel Stone to the Fairfax County Park Authority (FCPA) Board as the Braddock District Representative. He replaces Anthony J. Vellucci, who resigned earlier this month. The 12-member Park Board has members representing each magisterial district, as well as three at-large members.
“Kiel brings a wealth of knowledge not only of county government and community needs, but of the environmental management issues that are increasingly important for our parks,” said Braddock District Supervisor John C. Cook.
Stone has worked most recently as the Outreach Manager in the president’s office at The Nature Conservancy, delivering operational support to the CEO and president of the world’s largest non-profit conservation organization. Prior to that position, he spent five years serving as Chief of Staff and Political Director in the office of Supervisor Cook, following two years as a legislative aide.
The new Park Board member earned a master’s degree in natural resources at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University and a bachelor’s degree in economics at George Mason University. Stone’s appointment runs through December 2018.
