Candidate #4 – Alicia Zavala-Delgado: “Hello Neighbors: I am Alicia Zavala-Delgado and I feel honored to be able to run for an open position on the HOA board. As a homeowner like you, I care deeply about our community. My goals as a board member are many, but first and foremost I want to make a positive impact through my service. Some of the issues at the forefront are: Preserving and enhancing property values, reducing crime, maintaining open communication, and ensuring our resources are used in a cost-effective manner. I am a firm believer, that a successful HOA is one that values resident’s input and attentively addresses their concerns. My past employment in Federal and State positions allowed me to engage with a very diverse public. I derived great satisfaction from being able to teach others a new language, help them develop and hone their job skills, and offer the support they needed along the way. Using my creative side, I was able to develop intensive workshops, which led to participants increasing their confidence level, and landing the job they had been hoping for. This really gave me a feeling of great satisfaction, while it helped those who had been out of the job market for quite some time. I intend to bring my life experience, creativity, motivation, communication, and negotiation skills to the table for you. We all want a community we can take pride in and knowing that the people that are chosen to be your voice are there when you cannot be. SO PLEASE DO NOT FORGET TO MARK YOUR BALLETS FOR ALICIA ZAVALA-DELGADO. I WILL BE YOUR VOICE FOR THE COMMUNITY!!
