CAROL SANGUINETTI / PRESIDENT
Term: May 2022
Carol has an extensive background in accounting, starting with her student days at UC Berkley where part-time accounting jobs helped pay for her education. She has worked as a consultant in Accounting Software, relying heavily on her knowledge to assist clients since 1998. She has served on two boards as Treasurer – a start-up Community Band in Cupertino, CA, where she grew up and the other was an HOA board in AZ where HOAMCO was eventually hired to manage the HOA. She feels strongly about supporting Eldorado by giving back and feels that being on the board is a great way of accomplishing that. She looks forward to meeting many more of her neighbors and learning what is important to the community. She and her two dogs are happy to be living in an area which has so much natural beauty and plenty of space around us.
DAVID SORKIN / VICE PRESIDENT
Term: May 2023
Born and educated in Detroit, Michigan, entered USAF in 1967 during the Viet Nam conflict. Possessed a Top Secret Security clearance while serving in Okinawa and Italy. Returned to the USA in 1970 upon the death of my father and subsequent death of my mother in the same year. Worked at the USPS in Santa Monica, CA. Married to Melisa in 1977. We had two beautiful daughters in 1979 and 1981 respectively. Worked in the food service industry from 1978 for about 20 years becoming General Manager of a packing operation in Vernon, CA. Then went to Tollison Arizona as the VP of Sales (a million dollar a day company), all the while using the skills of Information Technology to enhance my organizations’ ability to move into the computer age. Accepted a position at California State University in the early 2000s as the de facto Director of Information Technology of the enterprise responsible for the entire infrastructure (backbone) of the campus of 35,000 students, 5,000 faculty & staff. Later, accepted a position in Santa Barbara, CA in a similar capacity offering triple-play services, (voice, video, & data) over DSL to small telephone companies across the US in order to compete with the cable companies. Took on a challenge at a 200-bed hospital as acting interim CIO. Finally, after living in So. Cal. for 46 years, Lisa and I were able to find Santa Fe, (Eldorado), and retire here in late 2016. I’ve been fortunate to be an active member of the ECIA Finance Committee since late 2017 and I am excited to join the ECIA Board and use my experience in the public and private sector to make a positive contribution for the residents of Eldorado.

Open Secretary Position
ERICA PENCZER / DIRECTOR
Term: May 2023
My husband and I moved to Eldorado in 2007 when our two children were young enough to attend Eldorado Community School, dress up for the 4th of July parade, grow veggies in our own plot at the community garden, watch movies at the Vista Grande Public Library, enjoy the annual fire department BBQ, spend most summer afternoons at the pool, drive around to all the art studios on the tour, and take full advantage of all that Eldorado offers for families. Now that our children are grown and I have a little more time, I would like to give back to the community that helped me raise my family.
Originally from Maine, I earned a BA from Colby College in Biology/Environmental Science. After many years of science teaching and school leadership experience, I earned my MA in Educational Leadership at the Teachers’ College at Columbia University. Since then, I have continued to teach and serve students in school leadership roles. Currently, I am a full-time science teacher at Monte del Sol Charter School.
As a member of the ECIA Board of Directors, I look forward to getting to know more of my Eldorado neighbors and collaborating to solve challenges that face our community.
JONATHAN TURKLE / DIRECTOR
Term: May 2024
I was born here in Santa Fe at St Vincent’s Hospital when it existed across La Posada. Because I had no choice, I followed my parents to NYC, where I was raised, went to high school, and eventually college in Maine. Oddly enough, even as a city kid, I always had a passion for the outdoors and spent several summers at an overnight wilderness camp in Vermont and then took off across Canada when I was 17 with a buddy traveling the road and hiking across the continental divide.
Though I was thousands of miles away from Santa Fe, I found time to return to New Mexico for summers at the Humming Bird music camp in Jemez Springs and almost every winter holiday for the last 40 years. For most of my adult life, I lived in Colorado Springs and Boulder, CO. In those 43 years, I took advantage of every Colorado adventure I could find. I was hiking, camping, downhill and backcountry skiing, white water canoeing, and most recently, horseback riding. It must be true what they say about New Mexico. Indeed it must have a magical draw for those who lived here as both my parents and my sister all moved back here in their due time. Two years ago, after I sold my business, the bug hit me as well, and I moved back to Santa Fe after we visited and fell in love with the Eldorado community. Since then, my wife and I have continued the adventure exploring every nook and cranny of Eldorado Preserve and Green belt areas. With my passion for the outdoors and nature, I recently became a Conservation Committee member, where I have just started to get my feet wet volunteering on some of the various trail projects. Wasting no time, I have already asked to be scheduled to give a presentation to demonstrate the virtues and possibilities of using Geographic Informations Systems (GIS) as part of the conservancy. I hope to continue to be a cheerful voice for the ECIA community.
