Director Reed was sworn in for a two-year term in May of 2023.
I am a retired U.S. Civil Servant with 30 years of Civil Service with Headquarters Air Force Space Command with an additional seven years of active duty serving in the U.S. Army. I am an active member of Holy Cross Lutheran Church and currently provide facility maintenance, planning, and IT support and served on multiple church boards. Within my community, I served as a member and secretary of the Stetson Hills Special Improvement Maintenance District. I am family and community service oriented helping others in any way possible. I enjoy building and working on computers, outdoor activities of hunting, fishing, and ATV trips and adventures.
I have great admiration for those serving as first responders and have always sought ways to serve and support my neighbors and community. I believe I can assist in guiding and planning the efforts needed to remain focused on serving the community. I believe in a team effort and in the need to communicate with the community and team members when it comes to public duty and responsibilities. New developments within the district will require cost-effective management and planning while expanding to meet the increasing need. I would like to help the team and community continue the great work outgoing board leadership has accomplished and help guide department members through a certainly challenging future.
