President Skeeter LaGace – I have been an RSDA Board Member since 2012. I have been an RSDA resident since 1990. I worked in service to RSDA Residents for forty years. Having been in this area since the 1970s. I watched RSDA construction from the start. If elected, I will continue to focus on financial and architectural aspects of our community. It is important that we keep up the values of our community by keeping up to date with current design, cost saving methods and infrastructure. Our community security is also important and I will continue to make recommendations that improve our security (i.e. fencing our parks). In addition, I will continue to encourage investigation and corrections to CCRs (if necessary) into the dues formulas for classes, as it seems they are out of alignment with actual costs.
Vice President Bill Moore - I've been retired since 2015. Desired to be more involved in our community, I served the past 2 years as Director on our Board. Past work history & experiences include but not limit to: 20 years counseling, 10 years construction, exotic game ranch manager, sales 3-5 years, etc. My strengths are: A good listener, objective, fair-minded, and straight communicator. Weakness: Very direct, strong sense of right & wrong, but willing to compromise when necessary.
Treasurer Yvonne Miles - My husband and I bought our home 35 years ago, we have one daughter who now lives in the association with our two beautiful grandchildren. I retired in 2020 from the San Diego Zoo/Safari Park after 45 years of service, my career provided an adventurous experience as I worked my way as a retail sales associate to Corporate Director of Merchandising in 2005 for both parks. My department was responsible for sales of over 31 million by the end of my career. My office was in Rancho Bernardo in a 27,500 sq ft warehouse which was our central receiving and processing center, also home to the website I launched in 2000, Shopzoo.com. Working for the Zoo I was fortunate to travel around the world as a representative for the Zoo seeking business opportunities. This provided such a journey of wonder and changed my perspective on other cultures, but also an appreciation of the great country we live in. Leading my department included strategic planning, financial budgeting, business development, staff training and review, as well as collaboration alongside internal and external partners in our business ventures. During my time at the Zoo, I served on several boards giving me an opportunity to work with colleagues in facing retail and wildlife challenges, fund raising and ultimately creating opportunities to educate and promote wildlife conservation.
As a board member, I would use my experience to serve as a representative of our membership, work with the RSDA board, its management team and seek out positive solutions which may arise in our community.
I've met many of our neighbors and must say we have a wonderful community! I fondly refer RSDA as the "Jewel of Spring Valley" situated 20 minutes (without traffic) to most places. With the current challenges we face, rising prices, safety concerns, I feel my experience can help continue the success of our association. We can ensure collectively to address and solve these concerns together.
Secretary Samantha Bermea - Originally a far west Texas native, I’ve become a proud San Diegan over the past 12 years. My family and I moved into RSDA at the start of 2020. This community offers a gorgeous backdrop, safe neighborhoods, and the most welcoming neighborly aura ever experienced in San Diego. In becoming a Board member, I will strive to assist our community and better educate myself and listen to our residents’ concerns. Through the empowering knowledge of available resources, volunteer opportunities to enrich the community and a strong emphasis in retaining low community fees, I hope to become a valued Board member for years to come.
Director Mike Spann - I have lived in the Spring Valley, Casa de Oro area for 65 years, with 34 of those years in RSDA. I have served on Boards for youth sports in the San Diego and Imperial Counties, and was a past RSDA Board member and President. I will do my best to serve the members of RSDA.
