Supervisor Rice read the following:

James Powers, a legal process specialist who has been with the County since 1997, leads others by his example. His strong work ethic, friendly demeanor, and dedication to excellence compel all who work with him to do their best. 

Jim's in-depth knowledge of the department’s operations comprises casework, customer service, legal processing, and so much more. Jim consistently goes the extra mile to provide first-rate service to customers and fellow staff alike. As a team leader, he is a beloved mentor who gives freely of his assistance and expertise, and his infectious humor and wit contribute to an enjoyable work environment. His long-term volunteer service within the community adds evidence of his character and leadership.

In addition to his service to County, Jim has volunteered for 17 years for Toys for Tots, having served on the board as Treasurer and President. A skilled woodworker, he builds hundreds of wooden toys for hospital-bound children from July to December each year.

Jim is a model employee and community member, and has earned the high recognition of Employee of the Month. Congratulations, Jim, on receiving this honor.
