PROPOSITION #1 – Director Candidate Biographies

Van English has served the Huntwick Civic Association as Deed Restrictions Director almost continuously since 2012.  His initial four-year tenure saw the number of deed violations in Huntwick drop from 189 violations on 98 properties to 16 violations on 11 properties, reducing the overall percentage to 2% of the 832 Huntwick properties.  In addition, his tenure has seen some long-troubled properties rehabilitated, instilling greater awareness of our deed restrictions and enhanced pride in our neighborhood.  Over the past three years, Huntwick has continued to maintain a 98% or better rate of deed-restriction compliance under Van’s direction of the Deed Restrictions Committee.  The number of legal cases has been reduced to one (1), which is currently in the process of resolution.  His previous civic-association experience includes six years as founder and president of the Northwest Place Neighborhood Association in Irving (Dallas), Texas, and three years as vice president for covenant enforcement of the Mountain Park Community Association in El Paso.  By profession, Van is a freelance writer-editor and Executive Director of the Houston Show Choir; he also serves on several committees at Resurrection Metropolitan Community Church in Houston.  He is founding board member emeritus of the Chester Street Foundation, which supports survivors of childhood trauma.  Van and David, his spouse of 23 years, have proudly resided in Huntwick since 2011, and Van would be honored to continue serving our beautiful neighborhood.

Connie Hardisty has been a Huntwick resident since 2016, when she moved to Texas to be closer to family, including her brother and sister-in-law Tommy and Beth Hardisty (Huntwick residents since 2010). She has a son, William, a recent graduate of SHSU, who currently lives with her in Huntwick. Connie is a CPA and currently works from home as a compliance officer for TIAA. She has over 30 years of experience in accounting and finance, primarily in the real estate and investment management industries. She is a director of Tyler’s Bridge, a nonprofit which provides scholarships to high school students in Katy, Texas, and previously served as a Finance Director for the YMCA’s Camp Jones Gulch and San Francisco’s Embarcadero YMCA.

Lauren Kornuta moved to Huntwick with her husband, Jeff, in 2014 from Atlanta; they are now raising their two young children in the neighborhood.  Originally from the Baton Rouge area, she spent over 10 years in the power industry for GE in various roles across services engineering. Currently, she serves as the chair for the Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) group at John Wesley Methodist Church.  Lauren also serves on the Huntwick Activities Committee.  Lauren loves the feeling of community in Huntwick and wants to further enhance neighbor engagement.

Mark Norman and his wife Alice have lived in Huntwick for over 15 years.  He has been serving as Maintenance Director for the HCA since October 2020, filling a vacancy from the previous Director. Mark worked for National Oilwell Varco for 22 years, taking an early retirement in August 2019.  Prior to living in Houston, he and his family lived in Austin and Midland.  Alice and he have been married 30 years and have adult children with accompanying grandchildren.  They have loved Huntwick from the start and have not lived anywhere else in Houston.  Mark and Alice are here to stay, as they are enjoying a recent home remodel and it has been Mark’s pleasure to serve Huntwick.

Scott Walker and his fiancée Jessica Rogers moved into Huntwick in early 2022 from the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Scott has spent the last 10 years working in digital marketing and website design and in 2017 co-founded a boutique marketing agency for which he now serves as President. He and Jessica fell in love with the Huntwick Forest neighborhood since their very first house showing and were excited to join a tight-knit community with beautiful homes and tall shade trees. Scott is an avid home cook and is looking forward to starting a home garden with Houston’s long growing seasons. He enjoys becoming more involved in his new community and hopes to serve it further by joining the Civic Association Board.
