My name is Robin Markarian. I am originally from Massachusetts. I co-operate a commercial cleaning corporation in Massachusetts. In 2015, I, along with Mike Miller, purchased a home here at the Meadows. We live at Lot # 358. My strengths are in communication, organizational / management and people skills. I currently live in Florida at the Meadows and have been a resident for 4 years.
I have a Masters Degree in Integrated Studies in Education and am a licensed Speech and Language Pathologist. I have taken advanced course work in Conflict Resolution and Mediation. I worked as a Speech and Language Pathologist and literacy instructor in Massachusetts for 35 years retiring in 2010. I chaired and was a member of several focus and collaborative peer groups. During my time here at the Meadows, I was on the Ways and Means Committee. I helped to form and organize the current Meadows Communicator open to all Meadows homeowners as a liaison between the Board and the Community.
I would love the opportunity to work inclusively with this Community to create an atmosphere where people are happy, cordial to one another, where we speak to each other with respect and dignity all while running and maintaining the business operations of this community.
If that sounds like something you can also stand behind, then I would appreciate your vote and support in January. Thank-you!

My name is Steve Gray and I would like to represent you on the Board of Directors of The Meadows of Crystal Lake. I am a full time resident of the Meadows who regularly attends the HOA meetings. I have no personal agenda.
My backgouund is in management and you can see my history in The Action News. My goal as a board member will be to insure that the association property is well cared for at the lowest practical cost and that the membership will always be welcome to share their ideas and needs with their Board of Directors.
I am always available to visit with you regarding your ideas and concerns. Give me a call and we can get together. I'm at lot #101 I would appreciate your vote. Thank you for your support.

I am running for the Meadows of Crystal Lake Board of Directors because the board is in need of new blood, new ideas, and maybe a new direction. My wife, Jaymme, and I fell in love with the Meadows community 16 months before we found the right house for us. To borrow a phrase from Olive Garden, “When you're at the Meadows of Crystal Lake it just feels like Home.”
My background includes a Masters Degree in Education and a Bachelors Degree in Journalism. I served 20 years in the United States Navy and retired as a Chief Petty Officer. After the Navy, I became a special needs teacher and worked with elementary age students for 22 years. I retired from teaching in 2016.
While all of that was going on, I managed to marry the love of my life, Jaymme. We've been married for 40 years and have two grown children and three grand children. I served in multiple leadership roles in the Cub Scouts of America when my son wanted to be a cub scout. I worked as a girl scout cookie cupboard, with Jaymme, for multiple years when my daughter was a girl scout. We were also very involved with the band parent association for four years when my daughter was in band.
I have experience with HOAs. We have lived in three different HOAs since 1990. I served on the board of directors for a Home Owners Association in Virginia. We had over 1900 homes. I was on the board for 12 years. While I was on the board we built a pool, a recreation facility and an on site office for our in house manager. I was always the one on the board that asked the question: “Would you be buying that, whatever it was, if it way money coming out of your pocket.?” That question often caused other, less thrifty, board members to rethink the purchase of something.
The question I ask here is, “All of us have made it to this point in our lives making choices, some good, some not so good. Most of us didn't need a board of directors to tell us how many flowers to plant.
If elected I hope to allow you to make choices that don't have a negative impact on the community or your neighbors, but allow you to be you.
