The Board of Directors is made up entirely of neighborhood volunteers and they spend a lot of unpaid hours (and personal money) behind the scenes looking out for your safety, property values, and enjoyment. Please thank them the next time you see them.
President — Ben Ku
Ben stepped up to help in 2016 when the reserves were depleted and there was talk of dismantling the HOA. By working with the other board members, and lots of hours developing resources, we’ve been able to build the reserves every year since. Ben is a veritable jack-of-all-trades but primarily focuses on creating software application solutions (like this website). He is also running to be your next County Commissioner.
Treasurer — Andrea Cooksey
Although not technically part of Smoketree, Andrea and her husband Mike are the champions for our pool! They have put in many many hours into making sure the pool is fit for use so please thank them if you see them around.
Co-Treasurer — Troy Jordan
Troy has been a Smoketree resident for 24 years with his wife Anne-Marie, and sons Cole and Luke. As a software architect, he has a great eye for detail and is helping keep the membership in check.
We have plenty of board positions open, so please let us know if you want to get involved!
Signal Editor — Cindy Petersiel
Next time you see Cindy, poke her and tell her to send in a bio! She’s probably too busy gathering articles and putting together the Signal newsletter!
Betsy Kidd — Grounds & Tennis Chair
Betsy moved to Smoketree in 1996 after a thorough investigation and finding out how special this neighborhood was. She’s still here because of the special people that live here. Betsy lives with her wife, Jayne Rauser, and canine Jackson Creek Kidd.
Ashleigh Hally — Signal Co-Editor & Block Captain Coordinator
Ashleigh and her husband Patrick moved to Smoketree in 1997 when their friends Eliesh and James Lane told them how wonderful the neighborhood was. 21 years later, they are still loving their “starter” house and can’t see living anywhere else. They have three daughters and a dog quite spry for his age. Ashleigh loves reading and writing, and her jobs have all revolved around her love of words. Ashleigh has been SHOA secretary, member-at-large, organized her fair share of social events and has edited the Signal for 11 years. Her goal is to convey information in an engaging fashion that makes people want to be involved in their neighborhood and the larger community around them.
