Greetings, Brothers and Sisters:
Some of you may already know this, but after 41 years, I am retiring. This is my last business manager column. It’s been hard to write, so I will keep it short and sweet.
I would like to thank the membership for putting your faith and trust in me as your financial secretary/business manager. I have been in this local for over 40 years, and it’s time to say goodbye.
Retiring from the IBEW is a difficult thing for me to do, but there comes a time in everyone’s life when the decision has to be made between career and home, as well as what is best for everyone involved.
I leave this local in very good hands. Dan Romero is my handpicked successor, and I predict that he will be a fantastic business manager.
Local 332 and its membership have been good to me, and I cherish all of the connections I’ve made and all of people I have worked with.
From deep in my heart, thank you and farewell.
Welcome Dan Romero
Dan Romero will step in to carry out my term. I’ve known Dan (or Romero, as we call him) for over 20 years. In that time he has shown me that he is the most prepared, qualified, and educated individual to take over the helm as the new business manager.
Dan has been instrumental in the accomplishments and success of this local over the last four and a half years. I have complete faith in his abilities to continue to improve and lead this local well into the future.
