As the New Year approaches, we will see work picking up in the High Desert with our community workforce agreements at Antelope Valley College, the Palmdale School District, the Antelope Valley Transit Authority etc. We will also have work coming from the defense plants, Kaiser facilities and solar. Monday, December 16 we will be attending a Palmdale Water District Directors meeting to secure and renew our Community Workforce Agreement.
With the start of the New Year also brings political action. There are many political races we will be involved with including Lancaster City Council, the 36th Assembly seat, the 17th District Senate seat and the 25th Congressional seat any help we can get would be greatly appreciated. Remember Brothers and Sisters, through politics creates jobs.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank our Officers that have worked so hard throughout the year to make District 5 the great District that it is today; Chairman Alfredo Torres, Vice Chairman Adalberto Gonzales, Recording Secretary King Moore (also Lancaster Planning Commissioner), Officers Mike Kaminski, Luis Martinez, Dion Jensen, George Martinez and Edgar Ico. I would also like to thank the following Members and their families for their hard work: Alex & Rosie Landa, Ronald & Lorina Dreiling, Danny Walters, Jackie Torres, Miguel & Anthony Sanchez, Romeo Gonzalez, Dalton Young, Miguel Ramos, Ian Gibson, Crystal Smith Trulaina Price, and Steve Joyner. I would like to give a special shout out to our Business Manager Joel Barton, President Rusty Roten, Organizer Alton Wilkerson, Business Representative Kris Mendoza and Administrative Assistant Cari Bailey.
In closing I would like to wish everyone a happy and safe Holiday season.
