David Juszynski - President

RE-Elected Second Term began July 2018 

I grew up in Lancaster, MA and my wife Elaine grew up in Worcester, MA.  I took my degree in Civil Engineering Technology from Worcester Junior College and started a 44 year career as a Land Surveyor in 1968.  In 1973, Elaine and I, with our two children, moved to Lancaster where I was able to present subdivision plans to Planning Commissions throughout the area around Lancaster and later in Charles County, MD. 

I was elected to the Lancaster School Committee and was chosen to represent the Lancaster Board on our Regional (Bolton, Lancaster, Stow) School Committee.  At both the local and regional level, I was on the committee negotiating contracts for teachers, administrators and support personnel. 

In 1990, the economy forced a move to Maryland in order to continue my career.  We lived just outside the Washington Beltway until October 30, 2013 when we moved to 865 Cambridge Drive to be half way between our two granddaughters in White Hall, MD and our three grandsons in Quakertown, PA. 

We belong to St. Richard Church in Manheim where I sing in the Adult Choir and am a member of the Knights of Columbus where I hold the office of Trustee.  

I can be found most mornings doing two loops around Cambridge Drive, helping out at the Coffee Shop, playing pool on Wednesday nights, or helping at events at the Community Center.  I would like to increase my involvement in the Brookshire Community by being a board member of the Home Owners Association.

John (Iggy) Taylor   Term Ends July 2022 

With Joe Biden as a neighbor and Valerie Bertinelli down the street I grew up in the blue-collar town of Claymont DE. I always had a passion for music writing my first song when I was eight and forming my first rock band when I was thirteen.  At the age of fourteen I started my first job as a dishwasher. It was then I would also meet my future wife Linda. We married after graduating high school. Music was put on hold as I quickly moved up the corporate ladder.  In 1974  I was offered a position with The Marriott Corporation, which lasted twenty-two years. Linda and I moved to Northern Virginia where we raised our three children, one boy and two girls. I held numerous leadership and creative positions within Marriott and helped develop a new fast food concept called Roy Rogers. 

I really feel God delivered Linda and I to Brookshire and feel blessed every day I wake up and step outside my front door. It truly is one big family. There is not a day goes by that I don’t witness the generosity, compassion and love that Brookshire residents have.  I would be honored to serve on the board.

Up for re-Election July 2021: Will not be running

I was born and raised in the small village of Waterford, Virginia.  I lived there until I graduated high school and took a secretarial job at the Loudoun Mutual Insurance Company.  I married after graduation and had two daughters, Emily, who lives in Washington State and Allison who lives in Lancaster with her husband Jeff and their baby boy, Asa.  I was blessed to be a stay-at-home mom to them..Once they started school I worked as a teacher at the Montessori Preschool program in the Presbyterian Church located in the neighboring town of Leesburg. I was an active member of the PTA, Brownies, Girl Scouts for my girls.  I was the mom who followed the girl's tennis team and volley ball team to support my daughters.  I was the mom driving them to dance class and all the other things they were active in.  

Once my children were grown enough, I followed my dream of becoming an Equine Sports Massage Therapist and studied at Equissage.  I worked at the school for awhile after I became certified and then went to work at the big dressage barns in Middleburg, Virginia and the Charlestown Racetrack.  It was very satisfying work as I saw horses regain their health and gain their performance back. 

My husband and I purchased Little Bit Farm and raised paint horses.  He competed in team penning events and I competed in halter and Western Pleasure. We held numerous events to benefit the local Humane Society as well as family fun.  We were host to the Blue Ridge 4-H Horse and Pony Club and gave riding lessons.  We had many positive,educational gatherings, to promote wellness, that we could all benefit from. 

A lot of love was shown to me and I was shown how to give back.   Horses taught me a lot about energy and how I could use mine to create an atmosphere of peace, compassion and understanding.  Respect was a key factor.  I saw how I can carry this over to everyone in my life and it works well. 

My husband developed Lou Gehrig's disease and I took care of him in our home until he passed away. After that I opened up our farm as a bed and breakfast and called it New Beginnings.  It was a new beginning for me.  I rented out the guest cottage on our farm to people and served them breakfast in my dining room.  I would serve them wonderful homemade things like hot apple tarts and quiches and my business became very popular.  I learned how to start a business and make it thrive. I learned a lot more about people too. The more I just loved and enjoyed everyone at my farm, the more  I saw them again. 

I moved here five years ago to live near my daughter and now she brings my grand baby here for me to take care of and enjoy one day a week. So many giggles and laughs. He is a big fan of our sidewalks for his tricycle. I have a very positive approach in life and I do enjoy seeing everyone in Brookshire.  I do believe in making it the, positive, kind and welcoming place that it is. I would like to think that we have the reputation for being friendly and welcoming and I would love to be a part of extending this as a member of our HOA.
