Impressive Work Ethic
By A.M. Johnson

Within the past days, a work order on the hook with KPU to install a power pole to provide access to our breaker box in compliance of electrical code, was completed.
Was advised about 20 minutes to their arrival of their coming. The crew of three linemen, all young well fit lads, discharged from the trucks, made a ground inspection, speaking quietly among them selves. Shortly they spread out to their respective positions and actions directed by obvious many such activities with power pole placement.
My view of these lads was made impressive by the work ethic, the safety roles each demonstrated again, as by force of having worked as a team where safety on the site was second nature. Upon completion of the pole placement, the area was cleaned and left in perfect condition.
There was not one wasted motion during the very short time this crew used in making the installation.
I want to make a public acknowledgement how fortunate we subscribers to KPU for the work attitude this crew showed. I thought of the many times at all hours of the day/night when problems with the power lines, that the efforts to bring the power back on line will be done by KPU lineman who under weather conditions, hours of the night, will be out there.
What I viewed currently made me regret not saying to my brother and the crew he worked with for many years prior to retirement, that provided a equal level of dedication. I wish now to correct that and if he is to read this, Thank you "Swede". The offshoot younger fellows are carrying on with the good work you and your fellow retirees provided over the years..
