Cascade Way
My name is Doug Clark and my wife Prakong I have lived in River Falls since 2003. We are the original owners of our house. I grew up in southern Indiana and graduated from the University of Denver, and then I joined the Peace Corps and was sent to Thailand for 2.5 years, where I taught English in a high school and helped train other teachers. When I completed my time with the Peace Corps I joined the Foreign service and worked for the USAID from 1967 to 1994. I was in Laos for 8 years, the Philippines for 4 years, Egypt for 4 years, and then I worked in the USAID Washington, DC, headquarters before I retired as a senior foreign service officer in 1994. After that I started working as a contractor for various private organizations that do international development work, and now I work part-time for a small company that supports USAID. I’ve been a member of the River Falls Board of Directors for the last 9 years, and this is my fourth year as Treasurer. I’ve always been actively involved as a volunteer with the community where I’ve lived, and serving on the Board is one of the ways I can help volunteer with my community today. My priorities for our future here are four-fold: 1) preserving the safety and security of River Falls, because even though my own children are grown and gone, we have new families moving to River Falls and they need to feel safe; 2) helping to improve the quality and value of our common areas and the individual residences in River Falls, which is where my participation with the ARC Committee will be helpful as we work with homeowners who want to invest in their property; 3) making sure our HOA is financially sound and keeps costs to homeowners as low as we can; and 4) continuing to develop a strong sense of community in River Falls.
