Luke Brown - Secretary - Unit 51 Resident
My wife, Dorian, son, Alex, and I have lived in Killearn Estates for more than 20 years. Before that, we lived in Fort Lauderdale. Dorian is employed by the State, and Alex by Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.
In Fort Lauderdale, I operated a successful law firm that handled a variety of civil matters, was a Civil Magistrate and a Mediator. I was a Board member of the condominium association in which Dorian and I lived. There, I helped other Board members understand their legal, fiduciary, and ethical obligations and helped establish an informal dispute resolution process.
I was recruited to Tallahassee by the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation. Later, I joined a national law firm to build its insurance practice. I taught at FSU’s College of Business and its Law School and have written for several international publishers. Currently, I write about insurance and legal issues for laypeople, businesses, and legal professionals.
I wish to serve on the Killearn Estates Board to ensure adherence to all legal, ethical, and fiduciary responsibilities owed to homeowners. I will do so by exercising sound judgment in matters that come before the Board and by advocating for:
• Transparency, not Secrecy in Board Operation
• Sound Interpretation, not Manipulation of Rules
• Fiscal Responsibility before Dues Increases
• Neither Sale nor Development of Community Property without Required Membership Approval
• Advanced Notice of Issues and Member Input before Voting
• Reasonable and Consistent Enforcement of Community Standards
• Orderly Conduct of Meetings

Their 2 children live and work in Tallahassee where they attended Leon county schools and graduated from TCC, FSU, and FAMU. David retired from Unisys Corporation, specializing in Bank computer accounting systems, following duty in the Air Force, as a computer field engineer on fighter intercept controls, where I was awarded the Joint Service Commendation medal for service at NATO in Mons, Belgium.

He has volunteered at meals on wheels and helped raise corporate funds for the United Way and Toys for Tots. David holds a Bachelor and AA degree from Park University and the University of Maryland in Business Management. I am running for the board to be a voice for all members in the Killearn community. In order to accomplish that, we must have board transparency and timely notice of agenda, minutes, special meetings, and have member input prior to any vote. We must have a sound interpretation of the bylaws and not an invention. We must have a reasonable enforcement of community standards not harassment. I am committed to bringing common sense back to the board and make it representative of us all.

My husband Bob Roberts and I moved to the Cameron Chase neighborhood of Killearn Estates in October, 2016. We love being here. After living in a neighborhood without restrictions, it was a welcomed change for us.
We previously lived in the Forest Edge Neighborhood south of town where I served on the board of directors for several years. I enjoyed meeting neighbors and solving neighborhood problems together. We beautified the Veterans’ cemetery and worked with the city to make city water available to all residents.
Through my career with the Department of Children and Families, I served as a social worker, policy analyst and manager. As a member of the Killearn Homeowners Association Board of Directors I will be committed to ensuring that the beauty and values of our neighborhood are carried forward. I will represent all KHA members with honesty and integrity and facilitate transparency and open communication between members and the Board.

In the Air Force I was an instructor weapons systems officer on the F-111, a navigator on the C-130H and AC-130A, and Special Forces MC-130E. I served two tours in Afghanistan, where I was the commander and flew nearly 40 combat missions and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross with valor.

I have taught international navigation at American Airlines, was the deputy program manager at the Pentagon and I have worked in several Florida state agencies. Finally, I have owned a management consulting firm for several years.
As a 24 year Killearn resident I feel I have an excellent understanding of the needs of the Killearn community, the challenges we face living in a maturing neighborhood with outside encroachment forces, and the need to maintain a strong, vibrant, and welcoming community. I wish to offer my knowledge and experience to help our community meet the challenges ahead and to be a champion for our Killearn families and community.
