MNA Steering Committee Nominees
Statements of Interest


Cynthia Cammack. We moved to Mueller during its first year, in August 2008, and live on Zach Scott in the first block of houses off Airport. It's been exciting to watch the community grow and see the principles of good urban design at work. Mueller is proof that planning and teamwork make a difference in the quality of neighborhood life. The Mueller Neighborhood Association provides a forum for the entire neighborhood to continue to build community, to understand issues and share information affecting residents, and to weigh in with a voice when residents need or want that. This is especially important as the neighborhood grows, and more systematic efforts are needed to get input from all. I'd welcome the opportunity to be a part of this effort. I bring professional experience with education, communication, and contract/project management that I believe can help support the work of the group. Equally as important, I bring a sincere desire to work for a neighborly quality of life.

Ani Colt. Hi, I’m Ani Colt. After 30 some years in the northeast, I visited Mueller the Christmas of 2011. My daughter lives in Windsor Park and she and her partner brought me over to lure me to Austin. When I got back to Connecticut, I read about the vision of Mueller on the internet and found Wildflower Terrace. Bullseye. Because of my long desire to help create what I call intentional community, I got it all together and moved in April, 2012. Since getting here, I’m helping start a Time Xchange at Wildflower Terrace and have lead one of our monthly literary salons to introduce the book I published in 2011. In addition, I have taken a rep position with Go Local Austin. Attracting and supporting local businesses can help Mueller’s unique potential and serve our residents.

My previous career consulting big food and beverage companies develop new products helped me gain a keen understand of the importance of listening to people. Serving on the MNA Steering Committee offers the opportunity to utilize my decades of experience. If elected, I intend to help implement the visions and economic realities that have brought us to share this growing neighborhood and evolving multi-faceted community.

Grant Fisher. I am interesting on serving on the Mueller Neighborhood Association (MNA) Steering Committee to help provide a better neighborhood for the Mueller residents. As a pioneer resident and a founding member of the MNA, I have worked on neighborhood issues since the inception of the MNA. I served as Chair of the MNA for the first three years, and recently I am serving as one of the ANC delegates from Mueller. I look forward to being able to work with the MNA on neighborhood and local issues, and hope to continue my service.
Corky Hilliard (I). I won the lottery and became a Mueller Pioneer in 2008. This past year I have served on the MNA Steering committee and am asking to continue my involvement. I have worked for the past 5 years on issues important to Mueller residents and community. I was honored to have been the first Mueller resident appointed to the Mueller Commission (PIAC) and served there for almost 3 years. While serving on the PIAC I worked to open the Hangar for resident use, the substation/golf course upgrades, and increasing the resident voice on the city commission. I have been involved in several Mueller initiatives and the Pecan Street Project. Austin community involvements have included board positions with SafePlace, the Austin Film Society, and currently the ECHO board which advocates for ending homelessness. My business is focused on strategic planning, executive leadership and community building. I advocate those ideals in my Mueller community work. I'm asking for your support to continue my work on the MNA Steering Committee providing a strong voice for resident involvement.
Kathleen ‘kat’ Malcom. Hello neighbors! My name is Kathleen ‘kat’ Malcom and I live on Camacho St. I began stalking the Mueller development in 2006 before the streets were installed, and met several of my current neighbors back then, as we shared our passion for shaping Mueller. I received my Pioneer lottery number in 2007, and built my home here in 2008. The Mueller community has exceeded my expectations, and in return I enjoy contributing to its well-being. I became the Upper Camacho Block Captain in 2009, and have previously served two years on the MNA Steering Committee, where I chaired the Block Captain committee. I have also been a member of the POA Resident’s Activity Committee for the last three years, and I created the Mueller Boomer Baby Social Club in 2009 which is thriving today. I would be happy to join the MNA Steering Committee in 2013. My goal is to extend Mueller’s visibility and engagement within our adjacent neighborhoods, and for Mueller to become a contributing member of the East Austin community. Thanks!
Kevin McGillicuddy (I). My wife Tish and I have been residents at Mueller (living on Pinckney St.) since the Spring of 2009 and have lived in Austin since 1975. As a recovering lawyer, I work in the insurance claims business. I greatly enjoy living at Mueller and am standing for election for a second year on the Steering Committee so that I can continue contributing to the life of this great community.

Dennis Mick (I). I retired in 2008 after a career in advertising and public relations for large companies. Carole and I sold our suburban house and moved to Mueller (4305 Scales) the following year, and we are so happy with that decision. We significantly reduced our carbon footprint but enlarged our social circle. We are involved in a number of Mueller activities, and love the direction of the neighborhood and the involvement of many of our neighbors. I have served on the Steering Committee of the MNA for two years.
David Neider. I’m originally from Urbana Illinois where I grew up and went to college. After graduating I moved to Austin because I liked the city and I had a job lined up at Dell. I have been living in Austin and working for Dell for the past ~12 years. I currently work as a quality engineer, outside of work I enjoy local live music, playing basketball and classic cars.
I became interested in moving to Mueller prior to ground breaking and entered myself into the Mueller pioneer lottery. I choose not to build at that time and later moved to Mueller as a renter in August 2011. I moved in to a Mueller House in April of this year. Since ~June I have been serving as the Mueller House Block Captain. I’m interested in serving on the MNA board as I’m interested in finding ways to make our neighborhood a better place to live including: influencing new development, finding ways to build community and keeping our neighborhood safe. Dave Neider 2012 Simond Unit D.
James Nortey. Hello neighbors! My name is James Nortey and I am excited for the chance to join the Mueller Neighborhood Association (“MNA”) Steering Committee (“SC”). I am a young attorney at Andrews Kurth LLP. I’ve lived in Mueller as a tenant in the Mosaic apartments at 4600 Mueller Blvd. for 13 months and have been a member of MNA for almost a year. In this capacity I’ve served as a member of the MNA External Relations Committee. I am currently in the process of purchasing a home in Mueller that will be complete in mid-2013.
I am eager to join the SC because I am passionate about community engagement, the development of our neighborhood, and strategic planning and growth based on new urbanism principles. As a member of the SC I intend to listen to the concerns of my fellow neighbors and be a voice for tenants and young professionals in Mueller. My top priorities are: 1) Building and maintaining positive relations with other East Austin neighborhoods; 2) Advocate for affordable housing options in Mueller; and 3) Help make Mueller the most walkable and most livable neighborhood in Austin.

Sandy Parks. July 9, 2008 I made one of the best decisions of my life. That day I signed a contract to build a DW row house on Zach Scott in the new Mueller neighborhood. I had lived and worked in Boise, Idaho for the past 28 years, but came to visit family in Austin two-three times a year. After the airport was moved to Bergstrom, I would drive by the “old airport site” to see what was happening, and I kept up with the Mueller project updates online. I had lived in Austin in the 60s as a UT student, and again in the 70s, with a very young family. Austin was to be my retirement home. I just made the decision a little sooner than I expected.
For the past 3 ½ years I have been “commuting” to my CPA practice in Boise. I recently retired, and Austin is home full time now. My retirement goals include learning and relearning all things Texas, participating in the Austin community, understanding our unique Mueller community issues, and becoming involved. Since 2009, I have been a member of the POA budget committee. I am truly in awe of the Mueller pioneers, and all the Mueller residents, who have devoted so much time, thought, and energy into making this a truly unique and wonderful neighborhood……thank you!!
Janeka Rector. My name is Janeka Rector and I am thrilled to be nominated to serve this amazing community. As a new resident, I hope to bring a fresh perspective and genuine enthusiasm to the Committee. I will be moving into the new phase on McBee Street in mid-January. See you soon!

Belinda Roberts. I have lived in Mueller since 2009. We are the house with the monkey on Gochman Street. Over the past few years, I have become pretty involved with our neighborhood. With the help of other parents and Mueller neighbors, I have helped put on many family friendly events including the Halloween Carnival and Mueller Egg Scramble. Through these events, I have gotten to know so many families and individuals who live in our unique neighborhood. What I found is that many of my neighbors have lots of questions about what is going on. I like to help answer these questions or provide information to help the dialogue and there is no better way to do this than to be involved. Outside of our neighborhood, I am an active CASA volunteer. I sit on the boards of the East Communities YMCA and St. George's Episcopal School. Additionally, I raise money for the Austin Children's Shelter by serving on the committee that hosts the annual New Wave Ball. I am attorney by training but currently put my "evil powers" to good use in a strictly volunteer setting. I'd like serve our neighborhood better by serving on the Mueller Neighborhood Steering Committee for 2013.
Kathy Sokolic (I). Kathy is currently serving as Vice Chair of the Steering Committee. Kathy is involved in many aspects of Mueller, from volunteering at the Egg Scramble to helping with the Front Porch Flyer. Kathy has worked hard to extend MNA membership throughout this vibrant and diverse community and increase participation in MNA events and programs. She believes in working with everyone from Catellus to the City of Austin to the surrounding neighborhoods to achieve the long-term goals of Mueller. On top of these efforts, she’s passionate about bringing and keeping the people of Mueller together.
Kathy would be thrilled to be able to serve her third term on Steering Committee and thanks you for your vote!
Diana “Dee Dee” Walker. I am very flattered to be considered for a position on the Mueller Neighborhood Association Steering Committee. As the property manager of Wildflower Terrace and a resident, my interest and concerns are two fold. I have always been an active participant in local affairs. I have been an active member of the Austin Apartment Association, serving as committee chair, board of directors, and executive committee. I have served on the Home Owners Association of my last single-family home. Member of the Pflugerville Chamber of Commerce and Faith in Action-Senior Access Advisory Board. I learned early in life that you more you give, the better your return!
Serving on the numerous committees, boards and other groups provided great experience in achieving compromise solutions with "win-win" outcomes. The diverse population of Wildflower Terrace strengthens my ability to communicate to individuals from all walks of life. Part of my work history prior to Wildflower Terrace included other new construction developments, giving me experience in zoning variance issues and neighborhood opposition to the planned building. I look forward to offering my experience and service to this amazing community.

THIS IS A RE-POSTING OF THE ONE ABOVE, WITH TWO CHANGES. FIRST, THERE ARE NOW JUST 13 CANDIDATES FOR THE 13 POSITIONS; AND SECOND, I'VE ATTEMPTED TO REFORMAT SO THAT EACH CANDIDATE'S STATEMENT IS SEPARATED FROM THE OTHERS, MAKING IT EASIER TO READ ... sometimes our formatting dreams don't pan out, so here's hoping
