As of this writing, the New Year has taken off on a good note. Cupertino Electric has just started hiring for the 120 MW solar project. Kaiser medical clinics are continuing work in Lancaster and Palmdale and Defense is starting to pick up. Through Business Development we have now secured nine “Community Workforce Agreements” around the Antelope Valley. We will soon see work coming from these agreements.
I would personally like to thank all the members who came out and participated in the last elections which was a clean sweep for us in the High Desert. All the political candidates we supported in various seats won. I would like to thank our Business Manager Joel Barton, President Rusty Roten and Political Director Antonio Sanchez for all their support.
Journeyman Classes continue here in District 5. Please sign up for classes at our Unit meetings or the next time you come into the Hall.
I want to thank our officers and volunteers Alfredo Torres, King Moore, Ed Fowler, Edgar Ico, Mike Kaminsky, Luis Martinez, Dion Jensen, Michael Polanco, Roy McBain, Dan Reynolds, Frank Jaseph, Maurice Washington, Maria Cruz Ordon, Darren Hilts, Elizabeth Debroeck, Chris Cragg, Ahmad Anderson, Ruben Santana, Mable Stephen and Steve Killion for all there help and participation.
Until the next writing, God bless, take care and work safe Brothers and Sisters.
