I have now completed 26 years at my job and a lot of things happened in the last 6 months. I work in water and sewer maintenance
for the Aurora, Ill Public Works Department. November 30,2013 I was promoted to equipment operator, a position I have wanted for
19 years. 6 weeks ago I became a certified backhoe/loader operator, trained and tested by Caterpillar trainer. As fate would have it
my operator position was short lived. This past Monday I was promoted again to labor supervisor. This is a great opportunity which I
will take full advantage of for my last 7 1/2 years. This position is and will be stressful for a while as I get used to all the new duties
associated with organizing up to 5 crews at a time.
