2018 Annual Meeting

ANNUAL MEETING NOTICE, ELECTION INFORMATION

Dear Killearn Lakes Property Owners,

We invite you to attend the Annual Meeting on Saturday, November 10, 2018, at 10:00 a.m., at the Bradfordville Community Center, 6808 Beech Ridge Trail. The meeting will be sponsored by FIRST FLORIDA CREDIT UNION, and refreshments will be served. The 2019 Board of Directors will be announced, and the other agenda items will be discussed.

The due date for nominations to the Board of Directors was September 28, 2018, and nine owners submitted their names as candidates for the Board. However, since that time, two of the candidates have withdrawn their names from consideration, so we now have seven candidates running for seven board seats. Therefore, because we have the same number of candidates as vacant board seats, and pursuant to our Bylaws and Chapter 720.306, Florida Statute, an election is not necessary this year, and the following seven owners/residents will commence service on the board following the Annual Meeting:

1. Michael Bolton
2. Mark Frost
3. Sharon Malloy
4. Roy Mars II
5. Tim Neely
6. Mark Reichert
7. Melisa Williams

We thank these residents for volunteering their time and for their commitment to our association. Please see bio’s of these new board members below:

Michael W. Bolton, Sr., Unit 1
Born in Chicago, Illinois and raised in Franklin, TN. I joined the United States Air Force in 1982, serving four years in the Active Air Force in Charleston, SC, then Eglin Air Force Base in Fort Walton Beach, served two years in the Tennessee Air National Guard, Nashville Unit. I graduated from Nashville Technical College in 1989, working in property management and real estate, and operating health care facilities in the Nashville area. I moved to Tallahassee and worked in the engineering department at TMH before starting my own electrical, security and fire alarm company in 1998. I have owned a Brink’s Home Security franchise and operated a very successful security company serving the Big Bend and the Florida Panhandle. I became part of the NAITALCOR Commercial Real Estate family in 2007 in engineering and property management. We had lived in Killearn Lakes for many years and I purchased a home here in 2015. My oldest daughter was in the first graduating class of Lawton Chiles High School and my son graduated from Lively Technical School. I have a wonderful 7-year-old daughter who is presently attending Killearn Lakes Elementary School.

Mark Frost, Unit 3, Incumbent
Mark and his wife Karen have lived in Killearn Lakes Unit 3 since 1996. Their oldest son Kyle was recently married and remains in Tallahassee, having recently run for County Commissioner District 3. Daughter Megan currently attends the University of West Florida and is in her last year of nursing school. Their youngest, Mason, is a freshman at Chiles and is an avid classic rock electric guitar player. Mark enjoys spending time with his family, woodworking and following college football. Mark always maintains a sense of optimism as an out of the box thinker, continually searching for resolution to complex issues, listening to both sides of every story and gathering all the facts before recommending alternative solutions.

Sharon Malloy, Unit 1
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. If elected to serve on our board of directors, my primary goals would be to ensure 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, 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 and his oldest daughter and her family also live in Killearn Lakes. Roy believes that Killearn Lakes is the best neighborhood in Leon County and he wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. He is a member of the current KLHOA Volunteer Board of Directors with one year of service.

Tim Neely, Preservation Pointe, Incumbent, Treasurer
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.

Mark Reichert, Unit 4, Incumbent, Vice-President
Unit 4 Resident-Incumbent Vice President - Director and longtime Chairman of the Fish and Wildlife Committee, a 34-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.

Melisa Williams, The Glen, Unit 1
I have lived in Killearn Lakes in The Glen subdivision for 13 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. I want to bring back the Fall Picnic, the Fishing Contest and the Fireworks. I feel I can make a difference being a board member.
