Robert Cavanaugh

Hello neighbors. Although I have previously served on the Peyton Pines HOA (PPHOA) Board as an environmentalist, I am compelled to request for your approval to rejoin the board in the same capacity. I am an Operation Iraqi Freedom combat veteran who served 10 years in active duty, primarily in aviation MEDEVAC support operations with the Army. I have one child; my daughter is just beginning her 6th grade year at Peyton Elementary School. My wife of 25 years and I first came to the Colorado Springs area when I was stationed here in 1997. I have 11+ years of experience in environmental program management, planning, assessing operations, in addition to managing a Hazardous Waste Storage Facility and managing a pollution prevention program on Fort Carson. Since separating from the Army in 2007, I have worked as a Department of the Army civilian.

The reason for my interest in rejoining the PPHOA Board is to assist and support our community with environmental issues, pollution prevention, stormwater management while providing regulatory guidance in accordance with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE). While providing this service, it is my hope to once again unify the homeowners our community as a cohesive problem solving entity. One of the reasons we have a HOA is to protect us legally with our best interests at heart. Past communications between the community and the board have been strained, taking us away from resolving our shared issues and interests. I would like us to return to an involved, fledged neighborhood once again.

Thank you for your consideration.

Kim Watkins

For the last 13 years I have worked at the Pikes Peak Regional Department.  For seven years, as a Certified Permit Technician, I checked and routed plans and saw them thru permitting.  My customer service is exceptional, even in the most heated situations.

In 2013, I moved into Finance and am currently involved in monthly reconciliation, daily deposit and accounts payable.

I have lived in Peyton Pines for 20 years and served as Treasurer for the Water Board.  I have been an active part of the community thru school, sporting and church service and believe I can add value through service to the board and our community.

Wayne Boote

Hello, my name is Wayne Boote. We moved to Peyton Pines last summer, in search of Country Living but also a superb school system for our two children. For the last year we leased a home here on Black Smith Drive. We were convinced that we found our piece of heaven here, and this was the neighborhood that we could commit our lives too. My wife Dana and I will close on a home this month on Pinion Park Rd. There are many things that I feel I could contribute as a board member with PPHOA. I have a background in leadership which started at a young age. Serving in the United States Marine Corps I was responsible for a Platoon, millions of dollars of arms, and the safety and accountability of lives and materials. Moving on in the civilian world I turned my passion for technology into a career, which later allowed me the means to own my business. My business allowed me the honor of having employees, which for me was the greatest gift. Owning a business opened the door to learning many talents that I feel could be an asset as a board member for Peyton Pines. Budgeting, forecasting, accounting, and learning to think outside the box for answers are just a few of the necessities to stay on top. My focus for Peyton Pines, and its residents will always be to help better our neighborhood, whether I am appointed or not. If I was granted the honor to serve, I would work at helping our homes from being devalued, safety, privacy and transparency. The HOA and its laws were meant to benefit the whole, not special interests.  Along with this quick look at my family and my life, I’d like to add that Honor, Courage and Honesty are some other words that my family, friends and colleagues would agree make me, me. Thank you for your time and consideration. God Bless.

Carolyn Payton

We have lived in Peyton Pines since September 2017.  I was a licensed Realtor and an

accountant with my own firm for more than 40 years.  At that time, I was very involved in managing large properties that were HOA oriented.  I assisted in the setting up of the HOA with the proper registrations, rules, bylaws, covenants dues and accounting.  I can say I have a good grounding in understanding and operating in the field of HOA living.

I want very much to be on the PPHOA board because I believe I have much to contribute to you, my neighbors.

2018 Peyton Pines HOA Board Candidates

Brooks Myers

Bio: I am a retired USAF officer, having served 22 years, primarily in space operations. I have two kids; my son is in the Navy and my daughter is just finishing her junior year at Peyton High School. I first came to the Colorado Springs area when I was stationed here in 1983. I have 35+ years of experience in program management, planning, operations, managing project budgets and schedules. Since retiring from the Air Force in 2004 I have worked as a defense contractor supporting Air Force Space Command.

Message to Homeowners: I have lived in Peyton Pines since April of 1987, except for six years (1996-2002) that I was stationed in California. I am therefore familiar with many of the issues and history behind the changes Peyton Pines has experienced over the last 31 years. I believe the primary intent of most of the covenants is to protect the Peyton Pines homeowners’ property values. I also believe that not all the covenants serve the best interests of the majority of Peyton Pines’ homeowners, and many of the covenants should be reviewed for possible modification.

I have led teams ranging in size from 6 to 100 people in accomplishing day-to-day operations of satellite systems as well as managing a 5-year, $50 million contract. My many years of project management, including significant experience in short- and long-term planning, as well as overseeing multi-million dollar budgets, would serve the board and the Peyton Pines HOA well.

Jason Darbyshire

Bio: I have lived in El Paso County for the majority of my life. I moved to Peyton Pines in November of 2016. My background includes commercial construction bidding and planning and serving in various capacities of law enforcement. I have previously been the local Secretary of one of the nation’s largest police labor organizations (2016-2017), and currently serve as a precinct leader for this area for local and State elections.

Message to Homeowners: I have served as the interim Secretary for the Home Owners Association since June of 2017. During my tenure as a member of the board, numerous improvement projects in the community have been reviewed and approved. I have served as a member of the Environmental Committee and stopped the development of mobile homes, modular, homes and various ‘alternative’ living structures within our community.

My overall job is to serve the needs of the community which is accomplished by conducting the business of the HOA based on what the majority of the members decide and I will never go against that whether it is in line with my personal opinions or not. Living in a previous community with over-reaching HOA covenants and by-laws my mission is simple: I am for the least amount of intrusion and enforcement that can lead to the maximum return on investment for our properties. I do not want you or I to live next to dwellings that would cause our beautiful community to go downhill and property values to plummet.

Debbie DeBaun

Bio: I have owned my own business consulting company providing services (accounting, payroll, medical billing, human resources, etc.) for small businesses and medical practices for over 30 years. I have also been controller of multi-million dollar high-tech company. Additionally, I have a Masters in Business. Also, I have been the President of the Peyton Pines Filing 4 Water Association for over 16 years. All of this gives me a set of skills that I believe would be very useful in representing the homeowners in Peyton Pines serving on the homeowners’ association board.

Message to Homeowners: I believe that the HOA exists to protect our property values and to keep Peyton Pines a wonderful place to live. This would be my focus. I also believe in total transparency which I believe is the only way the homeowners can believe that the actions of the Board are in the true interest of the residents. In doing this I hope we can encourage more membership to support the goals of maintaining Peyton Pines as a desirable place to live.
