Ryan Schnoke

My name is Ryan Schnoke and I am a candidate for the FORHA Board of Directors.  My family moved to Fair Oaks Ranch from San Antonio in November of 2016 to the Front Gate neighborhood.  My wife Cristina is a teacher at Brandies High School.  My 16-year-old daughter Isabel is a Junior at Champion High School, and my 12-year-old daughter Sofia is an 8th grader at Boerne Middle School South. 

I have worked at Wells Fargo for almost 29 years where I am a Vice President/Business Systems Consultant in the Distribution Strategies Group.  I started as a Teller and became a Branch Manager in Kansas, and subsequently managed several departments at the San Antonio campus.  I have a BBA in Information Systems from The University of the Incarnate Word and will begin working on my Master of Science in Business Analytics at UTSA this Fall.  I regularly volunteer at Oak Hills church and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) and facilitate a class called Empowered to Connect that is designed to help foster and adoptive parents better understand and connect with their foster and/or adoptive children. 

Prior to moving to Fair Oaks Ranch, I lived in the nearby Crownridge neighborhood and served on the Crownridge of Texas Owners Association (COTOA), serving as President for 3 years.  COTOA consists of several sub-associations as well as Single and Multi-Family residences, and Retail and Commercial entities within the Association.  When I began on the COTOA Board, there was significant conflict between the Board and the residents and I began working to overcome these issues.  In my years as President I received many thanks from previously disgruntled residents for ensuring that the Board communicated regularly, acted transparently, and fulfilled its role in a proper fiduciary manner, putting the wants and needs of association members ahead of any personal agendas. 

As I have observed the FORHA BOD, I see many of the same issues that I encountered with COTOA before joining their Board.  I believe it is in everyone’s best interests to have a FORHA Board and membership that work productively together to accomplish common goals.  I believe that very few FORHA members want to continue to see annual dues increases, especially for projects that do not seem to be completely aligned with many FORHA members wishes.  Through communication, integrity, and transparency we can have a better FORHA organization; one that meets the needs of FORHA members, while maintaining fiscal restraint.

I respectfully ask for your support and vote.

Stephen May

I am Stephen May and am a candidate for the FORHA Board of Directors (BOD).  My wife, Leslie, and I moved to Fair Oaks Ranch in 2010 along with my mother-in-law in 2014.  This hill country, laid-back golfing community with its wildlife was the only area we considered.  Just about every day you can find us on the golf course playing a quick round in the morning.  We are avid skiers which our 12-year-old daughter also enjoys in addition to golf and soccer. 

I retired in 2001 as an Air Force Chief Master Sergeant after 21 years of service.  My wife is a retired Air Force Senior Master Sergeant.  During my career I was fortunate enough to work with some terrific people and together we designed new network strategies that allowed for centralization of network services, keeping many support personnel out of combat zones. 

After retirement I contracted with a major information technology firm supporting the DoD medical systems and its networks.  After 12 years I retired for good.  I have an MBA degree from UTSA.

I served on the restrictions committee of my community along the Parkway for 9 years.  While working on this committee I have gotten to know my neighbors and have been able to assist them with restriction issues.  Earlier I was a member of the Timberwood Park HOA from 1991-1994, which was an education as the community had begun to grow.  In addition to managing building and restrictions requests, we maintained the park within the community.

I would like to join the FORHA BOD to help enhance the lives of our neighbors living here on the Ranch.  I am keen on communication and working together to solve issues.  I believe in listening to the residents and moving forward with what is most needed for the community in the most cost-effective manner.  I have seen many changes over the years in Fair Oaks Ranch and of course, much growth.  I believe we can work together within FORHA to make our lives even better.  I would appreciate your support and vote.

Allison Clark

My name is Allison P. Clark III, Colonel, United States Army (Retired).  I have the honor of running for a Director’s position on the FORHA Board of Directors and I would like to share some things about myself and my thoughts for your consideration.  My wife, Janet, and I moved to Fair Oaks Ranch in 2008.  I am 66-years old.  I enjoy hunting, fishing and golf, and Janet enjoys reading and cooking.  We have five grown children and six grandchildren.

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science and a Master’s degree in health care administration.  I retired from the U.S. Army in 2011 after more than 33-years active duty.  I served primarily in human resources for the Army Medical Department in between operational deployments to: Somalia, Bosnia, Kosovo and Iraq.  During these deployments I served as Deputy Commander and Executive Officer of a medical task force including all the elements of combat health service support.  During my career I held assignments as commander at company, battalion and brigade-level with responsibility for thousands of soldiers and multi-million dollar annual budgets.  In my final assignment I served as the senior military human resources officer for the U.S. Army Medical Command at Fort Sam Houston. 

I am generally a fiscal conservative, believing in responsible and prudent use of resources.  My interest and focus for the FORHA Board of Directors will be to bring inclusive representation for all homeowners of Fair Oaks Ranch.  I believe that the extensive senior level management and executive work experience that I can bring provides me with a strong foundation from which to work with the members of FORHA to deconflict our path forward.  I want to maintain and nurture the natural beauty and country feel of Fair Oaks Ranch that led us to retire here 12-years ago.    As Fair Oaks Ranch continues to grow, I want to help guide proper planning for the future, while representing all demographics and areas of our community.
