Meet the Board

Todd Thomas, President
I have been on the HOA Board for 5 years. I am married to Kathy going on 44 years and we have been property owners in Sunland for over 25 years and we became fulltime residents 4 years ago. We have 2 daughters and 4 grandkids. I retired from the Federal Aviation Administration after over 35 years. I was the Air Traffic Manager at Seattle Terminal Radar Approach Control when I retired. Prior to that I served 4 years in the Marine Corps. I enjoy doing anything outdoors; waterskiing, off-roading, hunting, fishing, or just being out on the water. 
You may have seen me run/walk the hill with Bogey our German Shorthair Pointer or cruising around in my vintage bronco half cab or perhaps out on the water on our yellow pontoon boat.
Shari Wood-Richardson, Treasurer
My husband Matt and I  have been in Sunland for 7 years with our family of 5 children and now 2 grandchildren.  We have made many friends in Sunland and over our time here we have seen the community go through growth and change.  I would like to work with the board and the residents to help make positive improvements to Sunland. 
I have been treasurer of the Quilomene Yacht Club in Sunland for the past 6 years and while working to obtain our permit during that time, I have built a working relationship with Grant PUD, NOA and other governmental agencies.
I am a second-generation CPA and now partner with my son Stefan, our firms third generation CPA.  My passion in helping others and guiding clients to financial success is what made a part-time file clerk position at age 16 turn into a 35-plus year career. Outside of work, I enjoy cooking, entertaining, reading a good book, and relaxing at our home in Sunland with our family and friends.
Tracey Hilliard, Secretary / Website / Pool Committee
Hello fellow Sunlanders!  My husband Mark and I have enjoyed owning in Sunland since 2003.  We have two daughters which practically grew up down here and two mini Schnauzers who love the beach and boating!   
For our family, Sunland is a place where we can relax, have fun, and enjoy all the incredible surroundings. We were lucky enough to find this spot thru friends and family and have been grateful to meet some amazing people throughout our time here.  In my 8 to 5 life, I work as the HR Rep & Community Outreach Coord. for a Commercial General Contractor in Seattle.   I have also served 10 years as the Secretary/Treasurer for a competitive dance team in Bellevue. 
As a Board Member, I hope to lend my experience of working with people, businesses and communities in both public and private sector to this role.
I very much enjoy working with people and respect other’s opinions and needs, as we are all coming from different places at different times in our lives.  As we start to spend more time and eventually retire here, I want to be able to help wherever there is a need - with the goal of keeping Sunland that GREAT place for family and friends to appreciate for years to come. 
Brad Stine, Park & Pool
I have been a Sunland resident for 6 years.  I am an active community member with a background in management and value the chance to contribute to our community further and ensure fiscal responsibility for all residents.
Before retirement 2 years ago, I worked for the Sherwin Williams Company for 34 years and managed a 64 million dollar business unit with approximately 200 employees as direct reports. The experience of leading a profitable business has prepared me for this endeavor.  Since retirement I have joined the local volunteer fire department which has allowed me to expand my knowledge of our community as well as serve or friends and neighbors when in dire situations.
I get along well with others when working in a group setting and I have the ability to help others find common ground when they disagree on what actions to take. Sometimes, it just takes a little negotiating to help reach a reasonable agreement that benefits the group. I am confident that I have the skills and experience to hold this position and to be a great benefit to the Board.
Tom Smith, Water & Fiber
Hello, I  have been a Sunland Owner since 1997.  In 2012, my wife and I became full-time Sunland residents and have met many great friends during our time here.  We were married for 51 years I became widowed in 2016.  Our family is blessed with 3 adult children, 9 grand-children and 6 great-grandchildren.  Before officially retiring in 2010 I was a private business owner for over 40 years.
My role on the Board is to manage and support the wells and water systems.  If you every have any questions related to water, I encourage you to contact me as I am happy to assist. 
Rick Divers, Water
I’ve been an owner in Sunland since 1998 and have been coming here for many years prior to that purchase.  A couple of years ago I retired after spending over forty years in the construction industry, most of which was with a family owned Bellevue company that supplied underground utilities. The last 20 years there I was in a senior management position overseeing hundreds of employees in 18 locations across 4 states.
Although I haven’t moved here full time, my schedule has been flexible enough that I have been able to spend much more time here. Because of that, and my work background, I think I can be an asset to the community to help us adapt as we continue to grow and change. I look forward to contributing to our community.
In my free time I’m a volunteer board member for a couple of nonprofits; a parks department community foundation and a historical society landmark preservation group. I also enjoy boating, golfing and participating in collector car shows
Maryanne Falcone, CC&R Commiteee / Communication 
Sunland is a wonderful place that I have enjoyed visiting with friends for many years. My husband Alan, and I retired and have made Sunland our home full-time. I retired from selling cars and loved helping people find the best car and deal for them. We have four children and five amazing grandchildren between us who all love coming to Sunland to visit. My passion is cooking for people and I really enjoy having theme parties. This year I am learning about vegetable gardening.

I absolutely love this community and will do my very best to represent all Sunland homeowners. I like to get things done and will work hard. It’s important to me for Sunland to continue to be a fantastic, fun and safe environment for everyone
Myron Meikle, Board Member
I have been a Sunlander since 2014 with my wife Janis.  We are in the process of building our new home and living full time on River Drive.  My son and daughter are also owners in Sunland and we enjoy having our 3 beautiful granddaughters nearby.  I am a retired Seattle Fire Fighter and currently a Commissioner for Renton Regional Fire Authority.  I have a long history of public service and many years of experience managing personnel and city projects.  I look forward to serving the Sunland Community.
Steve Fiorito, Board Member
My commitment to Sunland began in 1196 when I purchased a bare lot on River Drive and then, shortly thereafter, served on the Board for a short time.  I built my Sunland home in 2001 and have been a full-time resident since 2015.  My 45-year work history comes from an extensive construction background.  My experience includes dispatching, operating heavy equipment, material procurement, personnel management, goal setting and achieving deadlines.  I completed my career in utility construction as Vice President of Operations.  Boating on the Columbia, golfing and riding my side by side are my hobbies.  Time with my family and friends are most important to me.  Serving on the Board is my way of giving back to the community.
