  • Randy Schlake
Being a Real Estate Broker and Appraiser, my original intent for volunteering was to protect my family’s property values by taking a part in the decision making to protect the Association as a whole.  Having gone through the depression in the early nineties, it was not hard to foresee that the then (2004) booming market was soon going to implode.  When this finally happened, as we now know, it took away a substantial amount of the equity in our properties.  It then became very important for the Association not to lose any more of its appeal in the marketplace or we may lose still more equity.  Another factor was also in play.  Being in a Spring Valley zip code, we automatically lose value as we are grouped together with the surrounding communities (like La Presa), which typically exhibit little pride in their homes.  As time progressed during my time on the board, I noticed that some homeowners in our area had begun to neglect their 30+ year old homes and yards.  At that point, I took on the position as head of the Rules Committee and, with the help of other dedicated Homeowners, we started to enforce the rules in an attempt to make Owners aware of the condition of their properties and how we must all do our share in improving our Association to prevent further loss of value in our homes.  I was also made aware of the aging condition of the Association amenities, i.e. pools, tennis/basketball courts and clubhouses.  As a Board, we all determined to stop the “Band-Aid” approach to fixing the problems with the common areas; an approach that only did the minimum amount of repairs to keep costs down.  We all realized that as goes the common areas, so goes our appeal in the marketplace. As I get closer to retirement, I want my property to keep its maximum value and its appeal.  In order to protect our equity, we need to remain the Gem in the Spring Valley marketplace.
 
  • James Queen
I am Jim Queen and have been an RSDA homeowner for the past 18 years.  During my 20 years in the Navy I held numerous positions of leadership including running an aircraft carrier’s medical department and its four–million dollar a year budget.  I am currently employed by the Department of Navy as a licensed mental health therapist and hold the position as program director for a Navy substance abuse treatment and domestic violence counseling center.  My professional training is in the fields of behavioral science and business administration.

I have extensive business experience in running meetings, project management, budgeting, business networking and manpower management.  Some of my sub-specialties include conflict resolution, anger management and substance abuse presentations.  As one of your board members, my experience and skills will be put to good use helping to build a stronger and more efficient homeowners association.
 
  • Skeeter LaGace
I am a longtime homeowner and resident of RSDA.  We moved here in 1990.  I have always stayed informed of the goings on in our community, having watched it grow from open land back in the 70’s.  I consider RSDA to be an absolute necessity for our community.  I have a healthy respect for all of the homeowners that have gone that extra mile to preserve what has been created here.  I recognize that it is ALL of our members, past and present that have made our community what it is today.  My wish in becoming a Board Member is that I can take a more active role in maintaining and improving the community that all of us have created, while keeping down costs. 
 
My goal while serving as a Board Member is to take an active role in maintaining and improving the community that all of us have created, while keeping down costs. Considering that our community is turning 40, it is most important to keep up the condition of our investments and maintain our property values, which are considerably higher than other parts of Spring Valley.  I am eagerly learning the business side of our Association. 
                              
  • Bryan Barnes
Moving into Rancho San Diego in April 2001, I wanted to be involved in my community.  I became a member of the Board of Directors in October 2001.  Since then, I have served as a Board Member, President, and Treasurer.    

I feel a strong sense of community is what it is all about.  As neighbors, we should all work together to form a strong community relationship.               
 
  • Jean-Claude Labye
My family first moved to Rancho San Diego Association in 1978.  We purchased our current home in 1981.  We then spent several years overseas and finally came back to RSD in the nineties.
 
I will try to keep in mind your concerns and interest when making decision on matters regarding the Association and I'm looking forward to getting to know all of the residents in RSD.
