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 first year of service on your Board of Directors 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.

His daughters both attended all three of our schools and his oldest daughter and her family also live in Killearn Lakes. 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 second term on the KLHOA Board and his first term as Board Vice President. Roy has also taken on the responsibility of Chairman of Safety & Security for the Association and is currently in the process of working with the Leon County Sheriff’s Office to form a Neighborhood Watch for the Killearn Lakes Neighborhood.

Tim Neely, Preservation Pointe, Incumbent
I have recently moved to Killearn Lakes with my wife and our three daughters. I have 15 years of management experience, both in retail as well as restaurants. I have also owned and operated my own small business. In each of the management positions I have held, I was responsible for not only creating strategic plans and budgets, but also managing expenses to ensure profitability. On September 13th, 2018 I was appointed to the Board of Directors, and as Treasurer of our HOA. I hope to provide some stability to the Treasurer role by being re-elected in November. I currently spend most of my time being a stay at home dad and running a small online business. I look forward to doing what I can to help our community.
