2019 District Delegates candidates

Delegate District 1: Harris Grove, Patina, Suncatcher, Feathergrass

Aaron Colby
Aaron Colby has been a resident of District 1 in the Suncatcher Neighborhood for nearly eight years. He, his wife, and three boys love living in The Meadows and the unique sense of community that surrounds the neighborhood. Aaron is a writer and marketing professional for a tech company based in Colorado Springs, although he enjoys the perks of his remote home office. He and his family love participating in community events. In addition to his full-time job, Aaron writes a weekly blog post about all things Meadows on the meadowscastlerock.com website.

Stanley Gould
My early career in Architecture culminated as a partner in Gould & Associates Architects, and then as a land developer. I founded the Palm Springs Panorama Property Owners Association, to salvage a defunct 3,600-lot undeveloped subdivision. Since then, I devoted much of my life to developing land and managing real estate. During the last 15 years I served as a Homeowners Association Manager for a portfolio of properties for 6 years and a consultant. Upon retiring from active HOA work in the HOA industry, I applied my previous computer programming and high-tech experience as an Education Technology entrepreneur, currently promoting education knowledge automation systems.

I have served on the Meadows Tribunal Committee and recently joined the Architectural Review Committee. Our family has been in the HOA Management business for 15 years and have served as both HOA portfolio Managers and as advisors to various related membership organizations. Having participated in drafting policies and procedures in the HOA industry and using my experience as an HOA portfolio Manager, I learned to understand the issues that stress the valuable bond between our community and our HOA management team and develop solutions to strengthen it.

In this day and age, it is increasingly difficult to promote and sustain a civility that we all took for granted in prior years. I have previously drafted ‘fairness doctrine principles
to build, sustain and promote homeowner’s participation, through transparency, while encouraging active  inclusive dialog to keep all homeowners contributing to continuous positive evolution of the processes we share to build a better community. I would appreciate your vote for my candidacy as your new District 1 Delegate. I can be reached at 760-285-7621 or email me at stanleygould@gmail.com. I would appreciate your vote for my candidacy as your new District 1

Delegate District 2: Morgans Run, Briscoe Ranch, Panorama

Jim Goings
My name is Jim Goings and have lived in the Meadows since 2000. I am an Electrical Engineer working for a semiconductor company in Colorado Springs. My wife's name is Kathy and we've been married over 34 years. Together we've raised 4 children in the Meadows and we're now "empty nesting" in our home in the Panorama at The Meadows (KB Homes). We are volunteer puppy raisers in a non-profit service animal training organization and will be start work with our 6th puppy this summer. I look forward to the opportunity to serve my community in this role as

I am familiar with the covenant controlled community in which we live and find value to what it brings to the neighborhood. I'm interested to preserve the way of life we've grown accustomed to in the Meadows and feel this role gives me the chance to contribute to that end.

District 4: Morningview, Watercolor, Weathervane, Fuller Bluff

Jason Keefer
As a first-time homeowner and Colorado native, I’ve had the privilege to observe the strides that the Meadows Community has made from its creation to current days. After moving into the Meadows in August 2018, my family and I have worked towards leaving a positive impact with every neighbor and citizen we have come across.

My lifetime experience ranges from completing my college studies in West Virginia, to spending time as a Deputy Sheriff in Virginia, and currently working in the construction industry here in Colorado.

Combined with my enjoyment for public service, my wife’s hard
-working and caring personality fuels my interest in bettering the lives of people around us. I am interested in running as District Delegate because I believe that with my work experience and interest in improving the community, I am able to provide valuable assistance towards making The Meadows a prestigious neighborhood that appeals to families and individuals of all types.

District 5: Sweetwood, Plainsong, Leafdale, Gambel Oak

Kathryn Beran
My name is Kathryn Beran and my husband and I recently bought a home in The Meadows after two years of renting a townhouse, also in The Meadows, near Paintbrush Park. We are thoroughly enjoying being homeowners and everything that brings. We take pride in our home and how it looks to others not just on the outside but also on the inside. We love entertaining friends and family in our open concept living room and kitchen area. We have two dogs that are like our children and who keep us busy. I personally would love to become more involved in the community that I live in and have a chance to give back.

I believe my experience of renting and now owning a home allows me to have an open mind and a different perspective of seeing potential issues and solutions. I have worked in the corporate workplace for almost 10 years now and the experience I have gained through those 10 years has been immeasurable. I would say that I am a very organized and contentious person. I take on any task and responsibility with great focus and attention to detail and welcome challenges. I believe I would be a great fit for district delegate.

I appreciate this opportunity and would love a chance to serve my community.

Jim Paladino
I respectfully submit this statement of candidacy and the attached resume for the position of Delegate for District 5 in The Meadows Neighborhood Company (MNC). I am committed to the continuous preservation and improvement of the unique atmosphere of our neighborhood and the Town of Castle Rock. Having retired to the Meadows almost 3 years ago, we intend to make this our long-term home. I have involved myself in the community, volunteering at the Castle Rock Senior Activity Center as a driver for Meals on Wheels, a part-time driver of shuttle vehicles keeping seniors in our area fully included in our community, and most recently, serving on the Center’s Finance Committee. I have volunteered at events held by the MNC and we actively use the facilities. I believe my background as a CPA and financial and administrative officer at not-for-profit organizations for over 30 years, as well as my service on not-for-profit boards will serve the Meadows Neighborhood Company well. I look forward to serving if I am elected.

Delegate District 6: Upland Park/Tyler Park

Lindsey Smithson
As a resident of Tyler Park I would like represent my fellow neighbors and serve as the Delegate for District 6. My husband and I moved to The Meadows in December of 2015 because we loved the welcoming atmosphere and we knew we wanted to raise our children in a connected and engaged community. We have a 5 year old daughter who loves our HOA pools and playgrounds and a 16 month old son who is more than happy to tag along. Our home is our investment and to that end it is important to maintain the safety and appearance of our streets and shared spaces. As District 6 Delegate I will act with the best interest of my neighbors and our kids to make our voices heard to the Association.

Jason Pock is Director of Land Acquisition for Oakwood Homes.  After a four-year hiatus, he’s running as District Delegate to serve the community.  Jason’s history with The Meadows goes back eight years when he was employed with Richmond American Homes during the development of Sweetwood, Upland Park, and Gambel Oak neighborhoods.  Jason is a native of east Denver.  His wife is a 2nd grade teacher.  They have one young son.  Jason is a Broncos fan by nature but a Steelers fan by nurture, having graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.  In his spare time, Jason likes jogging and outdoors.  Jason loves The Meadows development and its small town feel.  As The Meadows progresses in development, and begins transition to homeowner control, Jason would really appreciate your vote so that he might be the neighborhood liaison within Stewart Park.
