District 5 — March Report
Greetings from the High Desert.
As Spring is upon us and we are dealing with unprecedented times, we are continuing work at the Defense Plants, Antelope Valley College, Antelope Valley Transit Authority, Palmdale Water District and the Palmdale School District. So far no jobs have been shut down.
Beginning of Summer should bring more solar work in Lancaster. We have approximately 200 MW still to come. With the help of Business Development, our Business Manager and the Building Trades we should be looking at more Community Workforce Agreements. Through politics we are trying to secure private work with the City of Palmdale and Lancaster.
We are still heavily involved with our political races. Locally we are looking at the 25th Congressional, 21st Senate, 36th Assembly plus local City council, Water Board and School Board races. All the help we can get would be greatly appreciated.
If you had not done so, please sign up for our upcoming Journeyman Classes. Our next class will be LAQSP in late April. This will be a 32-hour class and counts as ongoing education for state certification and is good for 5 years. If there is a class you would like to see in District 5, please let us know.
I would like to thank our officers for all their hard work and participation Alfredo Torres, King Moore, Mike Kaminski, Luis Martinez, Edgar Ico, Dion Jensen, Shane Fairbrother, Adalberto Gonzales, George Martinez and Ron Dreiling.
Please keep our fallen Brothers and Sisters in your prayers and stay virus free.
