June 2013 Employee of the Month

Gale Labonte

Parks & Leisure Services Department

Gale Labonte began working for the City of Porterville on January 18, 1999, in the Planning Division as a Clerical Assistant.  In June of 1999, she moved over to the Parks and Leisure Services Department.  Gale worked at the front counter in the City Hall Parks and Leisure Services Department handling Leisure Services clerical responsibilities, including park reservations and program registrations.  She then moved to the parks office at the Corporation Yard in 2004 where her duties focused on the Parks division.

In November 2013, Gale moved back to City Hall where she currently works in the Parks and Leisure Services Administrative office maintaining parks division work, as well as administrative office clerical duties.  It is fantastic having Gale back ‘home’ in the Parks and Leisure Services City Hall office.  She possesses a wealth of knowledge from her fourteen years of experience. Gale attends the Parks and Leisure Services Commission meetings and is responsible for the minutes.    She has also been instrumental in maintaining the City of Porterville Tree City USA status.

Gale is married to Andy and has two sons, Adam and Travis.  Her hobbies include collecting Mickey Mouse items, crafting, decorating and learning about history.  When asked what she likes most about her job, Gale states that she has great co-workers who make it fun to come to work!  She added that there’s never a dull moment in Parks and Leisure!
