I am pleased to be a member of the Skyland GID. I lived in the City of South Lake Tahoe for 30 years, moved to Job's peak in Douglas County for 4 years, and in June of 2013 moved to Skyland. For nearly 12 years I was the City Attorney for the City of South Lake Tahoe, and thus am familiar with laws pertaining to governmental entities and Robert's Rules of Order. I am a member of the State Bars of California and Nevada; my California license is currently active, but my Nevada license is currently inactive. The Skyland issues in which I have the greatest interest are the proposed bike bath and the beach, although I am willing to work on any issue I may be assigned concerning our neighborhood. I can be reached at (775) 580-7798, and cdigibb@aol.com

I would like the board to consider me for the open position on the GID board.

My wife and I have lived in the Tahoe area since March of 2017. We purchased our Skyland home in June of 2017. We are retired and are full time residents of Nevada. Our daughter, son in law and grandson work and live in South Lake Tahoe. We both care about our “community” and look to see the future of Skyland grow and prosper.

I retired in 2017, with over 30 years in California law enforcement experience which included 13 years with the LA County Sheriffs Department and the last 18 years with the LA County District Attorney’s Office.

I retired as a Sergeant and have served on advisory/policy committees with both departments. I have worked and been in charge of Code enforcement and community policing units during my career. I have custody(jail) patrol and detective experience as well.

My wife Kerstin and I moved into our home on Myron Drive this winter. Prior to this, I lived in Lake Tahoe for 7 years, renting homes until this year. We are full-time, year-round residents with this as our only home.
There are a number of things that qualify me for this role, and I think that I would do it well. My unique background includes:
-       An MBA degree from Berkeley, earned in 2014. Also, I work as a financial advisor. I have a very strong understanding of numbers, finances, taxes, etc.
-       Seven years (and counting) on the board of the Douglas County Community Services Foundation.
-       Four years of previous service on the board of my high school alma mater’s Foundation, where I now serve on the finance board.
-       Fifteen years as a school teacher. This includes 5 years on the negotiating team for the school teacher’s union. In this role, we had to assign different levels of importance to different features of the contract, and then work together with the Board of Education to create a fair contract.
-       Four years as a national team athlete (including being selected as an Olympic Alternate in 2018), and my current role as Secretary General of the Israeli Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation. This highlights to my ability to work at a high level, both alone and in coordination with others.
-       I am a new member of the Tahoe-Douglas Rotary. This speaks to my desire to give back to our community.

-       This is the third home that I have owned in my life. While we are fairly new to Skyland, I am familiar with the nuances of home ownership in relation to larger community issues.

I moved to Lake Tahoe from Greenville, NC in the spring of 1972 after earning a degree in Business Administration from East Carolina University. My sister convinced me Tahoe was a beautiful place to learn to ski and work at night. After experiencing the Tahoe lifestyle with the year around natural beauty and incredible weather, I couldn't leave. I worked in the South Shore Room, the theatre restaurant at Harrah's, for twenty years, ten as a waiter and ten as a captain. I invested in 4 pieces of property. That gave me the security to call Tahoe home. In the spring of 1989, I obtained my NV & CA real estate license. I am an active Realtor working with Chase International. In the spring of 2000, I moved my family from Middle Kingsbury to Skyland. I currently reside at 1056 Deer Cliff Drive. I also own the property at 121 Willow, my future retirement home. I am familiar with the issues we face living in our environmentally sensitive area as well as Douglas County codes that effect our neighborhood. As a Skyland GID trustee, my goal is to work cooperatively with my associates on the board , maintaining and improving Skyland's common grounds in a manner that will benefit all Skyland residents, protecting our property values.

My wife and I moved here in 2016 and have been doing extensive remodeling on our home for the past 18 mos. Our goal was not only to not only improve the house but the neighborhood as a whole by making the overall property more attractive. I have the same overall goal for the neighborhood. I believe we need a forward looking long term plan for maintenance and improvements and the necessary funding to execute those plans.

I retired from the aerospace industry in 2014 after 32 years, the last 18 of which I served as a Sr. Program Manager proposing and executing high technology development and production programs. I have experience in government contracting, procurement, engineering, manufacturing and testing.

My, wife, Janine still works as the Sr. VP of Global Supply Chain for a major aerospace company and spend a significant amount of time traveling. Sometime in the next 2-3 years I expect her to retire and join me in participating in local programs, projects and Government

Janine and I have 4 grown children, all married who will be frequent visitors to Tahoe and we look forward to sharing all of what Tahoe offers in the coming years.
