Hello Brothers & Sisters from the High Desert,
Now that we are into summer the projects here are holding steady. We have more solar projects on the way. We are working the Defense plants at Boeing, Lockheed and Northrop. We are continuing work at Palmdale School District, the Antelope Valley Transit Authority, the Antelope Valley Hospital and Palmdale Water District. Several contractors are also working the Kaiser medical facilities around Antelope Valley. Work at Antelope Valley College will be ramping up soon with the infrastructure project: The Security Building and the new Sage Hall.
On another note, I would like to remind all to attend our upcoming Local 11 picnic. It is a great event for the entire family. District 5 will be hosting the kid’s games and face painting along with the scalawag Pirate Mitch. Remember all kids are winners. District 5 would like to hold more Journeyman classes not only to better yourself but also to keep your State license up to date. So please sign up the next time you visit the Hall.
As you all know we are a political machine. I thank all of you who have come out to help us secure more Community Workforce agreements by attending out City Council, Waterboard, Schoolboard and Planning Commission meetings. It is all appreciated.
On a last note, I want to personally thank our officers Lancaster Planning Commissioner King Moore, Mike Kaminski, Luis Martinez, Edgar Ico, Dion Jensen, Shane Fairbrother and Victor Lambaren. Thank you again to all our volunteers, family, friends and our Business Development team who work so tirelessly to make our District and Local so great!
God Bless you all,
