Tamara Budnick Kei, Scotswood Resident
My name is Tamara Budnick Kei. I found this literary exercise very interesting because how does one decide the salient points of one’s life, having lived 70 years? Certainly a lot to consider, but here it is.

Newly retired, I spent the last 48 years as a caregiver, working as a registered nurse and a physician’s assistant. I found my work deeply rewarding and I admit that I miss it. Once settled, I will find volunteer situations that satisfy my caregiver tendencies.

Newly relocated, I lived in South Florida for over 40 years before moving to Tallahassee. The slower pace and beauty of Tallahassee has always appealed to me. I‘ve made many visits to my son, Jeff, who started at FSU and decided to stay after graduation. The June birth of my first grandchild, Wesley (better known as “lil dude”), made the decision to move a no-brainer.

Interests include gourmet cooking, music, travel, movies and live theatre and concerts. Unfortunately, COVID-19 has temporarily curtailed many of these activities. Hopefully, life will soon return to a more acceptable level of normal.

Life as a professional caregiver, wife, mother, grandmother and Vietnam era war veteran has been interesting, fulfilling and very busy. As most people my age, I look forward to this time in my life to do and learn things I never had the time for, to enjoy my family and to be of service to my community. I look forward to working with members of the board and becoming an active, contributing member of the HOA of Killearn Lakes and Tallahassee.

Sharon Malloy, Unit 1 Resident, Incumbent
My name is Sharon Malloy and I have lived in Killearn Lakes, Unit 1 since 2009. While I grew up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and received my Bachelor’s Degree from Louisiana State University, I quickly made Tallahassee my home in 1978. I began my career in state government working for the Florida Legislature then moved to the Department of Business and Professional Regulation, Division of Florida Condominiums, Timeshares and Mobile Homes. I held various positions in the division including head of the enforcement section for condominium laws. I also provided staff support for an early Legislative commission which studied the operation and regulation of homeowner associations in Florida. I retired from the state after 35 years and then had the privilege of working part time in the KLHOA office. Most recently, I assisted with the drafting of revised covenants and restrictions for our community. I am completing my second year of service on your Board of Directors as Secretary with ongoing goals of ensuring that information relating to association operations is readily available to property owners, and that property values are protected by providing reasonable and equal enforcement of our covenants and restrictions.

Roy H. Mars II, Unit 1 Resident, Incumbent
Roy is a veteran of the United States Air Force. He has lived in six different states over the years. Professionally, Roy is a software designer with the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity. He is also the founding lead person on the Nextdoor Killearn Lakes Web site. He has lived in Killearn Lakes since 1989. He and his wife raised both of their children here. His daughters both attended all three of our schools. Roy tells people that Killearn Lakes is the best neighborhood in Leon County and he wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. He is currently serving his third term on the KLHOA Board and his second term as Board Vice President. Roy has also taken on the responsibility of Chairman of Safety & Security for the Association.

Mark Reichert, Unit 4 Resident, Incumbent
A Unit 4 resident, Mark has served as Volunteer Board President the past two years. Director and long-time Chairman of the Fish and Wildlife Committee, a 36-year resident of Killearn Lakes. Employed as the Administrator for Metropolitan Planning for the Florida Department of Transportation. Finalist for “Leader of the Year” in 2007, Leadership Tallahassee, Inc. Appointed by Commissioner Bryan Desloge to the Bannerman Road Corridor Study Citizens Advisory Committee. “I would like to continue my long standing activism for the Killearn Lakes Community”.

Matt Russo, Unit 1 Resident, Incumbent
Matt moved to Tallahassee from Virginia in 2002, and has been here ever since. He graduated from Florida State University with a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering in 2015. He works for a local firm and is working on obtaining his Professional Engineer certification and license. He and his family moved into Killearn Lakes after graduation, and bought their first house here in 2016.

Tara vonBodungen, Unit 1 Resident, Incumbent
My name is Tara vonBodungen. My husband, Steven and I along with our two children, have lived in Killearn Lakes for over 10 years. Tallahassee is our home and we love the community. My work experience includes apartment and commercial property management. I also have worked in the life insurance industry. I maintain a real estate license. Currently, I work part-time with FWC, but am a full-time mom raising my two 14-year old children as they navigate their way through school. I enjoy my daily walks through my neighborhood, waving and just getting to know my neighbors. I strive to be a positive influence on this community in any way I can.

Melisa Williams, The Glen Resident, Incumbent
I have lived in Killearn Lakes in The Glen subdivision for 14 years. I work full time as a secretary for the Florida Highway Patrol. I retired from the U.S. Army in 2010 after serving 27 years’ active duty. I love the nature setting living in Killearn Lakes. I want to continue to preserve the Killearn Lakes setting like living in a state park and the value that our environment brings to the community. After being a board member volunteer for two years, I want to continue to enforce the covenants that I signed when I moved into my home, to help maintain our property values.
