November 2010 Employee of the Month

Larry Benton

Finance Department

For the month of November, we are honoring LARRY BENTON as the City of Porterville’s employee of the month.  Larry was hired January 1, 2008, as a Meter Reader.

Larry immediately demonstrated outstanding performance in his new position. Larry has a great attitude.  He shows up for work with an exceptional interest in achieving team results, always helping out with anything that needs to be done.  His work is completed in a very accurate, neat and effective manner.  Larry demonstrates exceptional safety techniques, always communicating any potential problem.  Larry is able to maintain a courteous demeanor, even in adverse situations.  He is able to express a calm and polite attitude while dealing with the most difficult customer.

Larry is a very detail oriented person.  If there is one thing that describes Larry best, it would be that he is a PLANNER.  He plans to be at work early, he plans for what job is to be completed for the day, and he plans on what may be needed for today’s tasks.  You would never see him running back to the office for anything, because he has already planned on what may be needed for any situation that may arise.  Larry is truly an example of a perfect employee.  He represents the City well with his knowledge, his courtesy and his caring personality.

Larry has been married to Annette for 7 years.  They have 2 adorable girls, Sasha & Lexi, which are actually their very spoiled Bichon Frise dogs.  Larry enjoys vacationing in Hawaii.  After just returning from a trip in October, he is already “planning” his Hawaii trip for next year.  Larry also enjoys playing golf, working around the house and spending time with his family.

Thank you Larry for always going above and beyond in all that you do for the city!
