GARY J. SAMUELS - Water Department
Gary is a twenty two year veteran of the United States Air Force. During his military
career he provided security for bases in Germany, California and Louisiana before
being selected to teach at the Law Enforcement Technical school in San Antonio,
TX. He was selected to work at the major command headquarters, responsible for
Law Enforcement training including Military Working Dogs for thirteen Air Force
bases. He retired as the Superintendent of Law Enforcement at Wright Patterson
AFB, Dayton Ohio.
After his years in the service he joined Gordon Food Service where he worked for
twenty years. He spent the bulk of his tenure as a product manager. Gary developed,
implemented and managed an online ordering system as well as an Inventory and
Recipe management system for restaurant owners and executive chefs. He retired as
an E-Business Product Manager.
Upon retiring from his second career he and his wife decided to sell everything and
travel the country for a couple of years seeing the sites and meeting new people.
Traveling in an Airstream, they traversed the U.S. seeing and experiencing some of
this beautiful country and meeting amazing people along the way.
When it came time to settle down, they settled on Foxfire Village in 2019 because
of its quiet rural setting and, of course golf!! They had been coming to Pinehurst in
the Spring for about 15 years visiting good friends, enjoying the good weather and
great golf, so it wasn’t much of a stretch to want to settle here.
Gary has always felt a sense of wanting to give back and volunteering for most of
his life. As a young boy he helped organize a brass choir (he plays trumpet) playing
at Assisted Living Facilities and around his neighborhood during Christmas. During
his years in the service he volunteered for many committees and even donned the
McGruff the Crime Dog costume to help increase police-community awareness and
crime prevention. Later he became a board member for Leadership Clark County
which is an organization that helps raise awareness and provide assistance to the
underserved people in the community. Volunteering for Habitat for Humanity was
also a very memorable experience
Since his arrival in Foxfire, Gary joined and was later elected Chairman of the
Foxfire Men’s Golf Association and volunteered for a seat on the Foxfire Planning
and Zoning Committee in 2021.
Gary is married, has one adult child and four beautiful granddaughters.
JANET NAUMAN - Streets and Park
Over 30 years ago, my husband Ron and I made our first trip to Foxfire while on
vacation. We fell in love with the area and knew we wanted to make Foxfire the
place we would retire to from Illinois, which led us to purchase our lot way back
then. On our visits throughout the years we would see the potential of Foxfire, the
charming surroundings and the community friendship.
Fast forward to 2019, we started building our house and moved in April of 2020.
We are extremely delighted to be in our forever home.
The current projections for growth in Foxfire have made this an exciting time to be
a resident. I have witnessed the forward momentum of the current board and it is
important to me to be in a position where I can contribute to the management of this
growth. The strategic plan of the village is well established and we need council
members who are committed to working as a team to continue this plan. My goal
as a board member of the Village council is to represent the interests of the residents
of our community, be a member who listens to the residents and make
decisions/plans which benefit both the residents and the village. I will be diligent in
making sure our village will continue to be an affordable, safe, welcoming and
livable village for all our residents, where all are welcome. I am also a board
member of the FPOA (Foxfire Property Owners Association).
I was a fully licensed insurance agent over 40 years and spent my career in some
form of insurance sales. The last 14 years of my career I was a Vice President of
Sales for a national managed care company for workers’ compensation. I have an
extensive background negotiating contracts with most major insurance companies
such as State Farm & Auto Owners and employers such as Ford Motor Company. I
was also President of our community well association for our subdivision in Illinois
for 24 years.
DONALD NELSON - Public Safety
I grew up in a rural dairy community in Wisconsin, where I lived all my childhood.
I studied architectural design at the University of Wisconsin Stout in Menominee.
After attending, I joined the Army/National Guard where I served for 7 years. I
served as the commander of an M60 tank. To put that in perspective, an M60 tank
would mostly be seen today as a museum attraction. I married my wife Sonja around
the same time. My wife is from the same town that I grew up in, and we went to high
school together. We have two children, a daughter who lives in Southern Pines, and
a son, who lives in Nashville, Tennessee. While serving, I began a construction
company with a partner, called Dairyland construction. We would go on to build
over 200 homes. We also owned a lumber and hardware supply company, called
Dairyland Building Supply. From the profits of my companies, I went on to acquire,
with my business partners: 4 Hardee's restaurants, 3 motels, 28 car wash locations
in Wisconsin, Iowa, and Minnesota, as well as 18 Auto Lube centers. In 2008, I
moved from Wisconsin to Foxfire to be closer to my family. In the time I've lived
here, I have served on the FPOA board for 6 years, served on the Golf Association
board for 4 years, last year as president. Throughout my career in construction and
ownership of various businesses, I have developed a strong sense of leadership and
duty to my community.
