Get to know our neighbors who are nominated to lead HHNA into 2017:
Bonnie Taylor – President
Compared to others in the neighborhood, Bonnie is a new resident. She and her husband, Tom, moved to to Hampton Hills in October 2015. They have been married 41 years and have an adult son and daughter. Their first home, in Kidd Springs, was a Craftsman that they lovingly restored. They are excited to be working on their current home, in this beautiful neighborhood of classic Tudor architecture. Bonnie, a graduate of the University of Texas, is a lifelong learner, but also the mother of two Aggies. She spent her childhood in Oak Cliff considers herself a Texan through and through. She enjoys traveling and reading, as well as new adventures, and is looking forward to becoming the HHNA’s new president.
Anthony Valdez – Vice President
Anthony and his husband, Lewis, moved into the neighborhood last year after falling in love with their Hollywood Avenue bungalow. They enjoy the quietness of the neighborhood and the unique character of each home. Anthony is currently a middle school counselor and previously worked in education at the community college and university levels. They have two cats: Benny, a Blue Russian/Siamese mix, and Nicky, an orange Tabby. They also enjoy watching movies, musicals, and traveling.
John Knott – Treasurer
John has worked in the construction accounting industry for more than 25 years, and his partner, Rod, has been with AT&T for more than 20 years. John first moved to Hampton Hills in October 2003. A few years later, his job took him to San Francisco, though he kept his house as a rental property. During this time, he reconnected with Rod, who he originally met when John was just 15 and still living in Dallas. As the relationship grew and his obligations in San Francisco came to an end,he knew he wanted to be back in Texas. So in 2011, John returned, and he and Rod moved back to Hampton Hills to make a home. They both love the charm/architecture of the neighborhood and feel blessed to be living around so many wonderful neighbors, many of whom have become very good friends. They consider themselves a pretty “laid back” couple: John enjoys gardening and is a bit of a “techie,” and they’re both committed to seeing this neighborhood realize its full potential!
