    Kiki Contreras

    “Hello my name is Kiki Contreras, I moved here from Paso Robles in 2014 and purchased my home, June of 2018. I love our small hidden gem but I have concerns as to what’s happening in our area. The increase of break in, noise, traffic, mail and package theft, etc…is a concern for me and many I’m sure. As a former coach, board members for a non-profit organization, and volunteer for a few veteran organizations and schools functions, I know If elected I will do my best to put my experience to good use and help put or implement new ideas to help us get our community back to safety. Together we can make a difference. Together we can do it!

    Thank you”

    Jonathan Porchia

    “My name is Jonathan Porchia, I am a new Homeowner here at Park Stockdale! I am 25 years old & I own 2 Online businesses with my Fiance. Owning an online business gave me the pleasure of working remotely. I spent a lot of time seeing some of the most amazing places in the world including Tokyo Japan, Beijing China, Bali Indonesia, Vietnam & one of my favorites Thailand. I am interested in being on the board to ensure the integrity of our neighborhood. This includes keeping dues low, making sure our neighborhood is safe, & making sure amenities are kept looking nice & clean. Im honored to serve the community if I have the chance. Thank You!”

    Roxanne Fackler                                           “Serving on the board for the past two years in the positions of Vice President and Community Activities has been an enjoyable challenge for me. I have lived in Park Stockdale since 1976  but was not active in community events until recently. Returning to an active Community is one of my goals. Watching Mailman Joe at his retirement party was great. He loved seeing so many of you honor his service. He still walks our streets. It has been fun to observe your  faces when giving you prizes for your decorations at Christmas and Halloween. I’m hoping to inspire healthy lifestyles with the ParkCourse and the proposed ParkWalk. The past year’s Covid limits have been so frustrating. Canceling the Easter Egg hunt, costume contest and bike rodeo was disappointing. I have loved proposing and presenting activities; would like to continue on the Board to resume and increase our activities.”

    Rachel Kirk
    “My husband and I are new residents of Park Stockdale having moved here from Ventura County! I am a mother of 5 and own my own Social Media Marketing business. I am interested in being on the board because I want to help care for our community and ensure my family is living in the best version of our neighborhood that they can. Keeping our dues low while maintaining the neighborhood amenities is of great importance to me. I look forward to having the opportunity to serve our community in this capacity.”
