FAIRFAX, VA. - Although it’s lately seemed as if, every few months, there’s a new face on the Fairfax City Council dais, the new one appearing there Tuesday night belonged to someone familiar. Former City Councilman Dan Drummond rejoined the Council temporarily to fill the seat vacated three weeks ago by former Councilman David Meyer after he became mayor in a special election.

Drummond served three terms on the council, from June 2008 to July 2014. He was also a member of the city’s Economic Development Authority and Parks and Recreation Advisory Board. And he currently serves on the boards of directors for Spotlight on the Arts and the Virginia Council on Economic Education.

Professionally, he’s the communications director for the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards. And he and his wife Kerry live in Fairfax’s Green Acres community with their three children, Sadie, Patrick and Liam.

At the outset of the Feb. 28 City Council meeting, Councilwoman Janice Miller made a motion to appoint Drummond to the council effective immediately upon his being sworn in. Councilman Jeff Greenfield seconded, the council approved Drummond unanimously and then City Clerk Melanie Crowder administered the oath of office. Drummond will serve until a new council member is chosen in the city’s special election set for Sept. 12.
