EMCA 2020 Candidate Slate Bios
I’m Julia Schafer, current Treasurer of East Montrose Civic Association. I’m a native Houstonian who graduated from the University of Texas with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism. I have lived in our neighborhood for six years with my husband who is a long-time resident of East Montrose. Since my term as Treasurer I have maintained the accounting records and the membership and email database. I have also co-chaired the annual National Night Out and assisted with the Trees for East Montrose program. I am currently Treasurer of Houston Mod and I have served as a board member for the following non-profits: Norhill Neighborhood Association, Voices Breaking Boundaries and the Society of Design Administrators. I also served on the Rice Design Alliance Membership Committee and Norhill Neighborhood Association Home Tour Committee. I have worked consistently in and around the architectural industry managing small architecture firms. My interests include historic preservation, architecture, mid-century modern furniture, textile design and modern culture. I would like to continue my position as Treasurer for the East Montrose Civic Association and would appreciate your vote.
Hey y’all. My name is Mike McHam and I’m interested in getting involved with the EMCA board in the capacity of Secretary. My partner, Rodney, and I moved into East Montrose two years ago from Charlotte, NC and can’t imagine living anywhere else in Houston! We have had the pleasure to meet a lot of neighbors, some of which have become great friends. We love taking a walk around the neighborhood with our Roxy girl (lab mix) or taking our bikes down to the Bayou for a ride. I’ve always been a believer that to those that much is given, much is expected. I want to continue making East Montrose the beautiful Living Mosaic it has become by participating on the board!
Bill Maxey, who am I? More reclusive than JD Salinger on a rainy day. Purveyor of puns. Business owner and commercial landlord. Amateur photographer. Happily married to Kirste with 2 dogs and 2 cats. I have been actively involved in the community for many years, including past EMCA president (many years ago) and the Head of the Home Tour Committee for the past 14 years. I am now retired (I mean it this time) so am running for the At Large position.
