July 2014 Employee of the Month

Luisa Zavala

Administrative Services

Luisa Zavala has been selected as the City of Porterville Employee of the Month for July 2014.  Luisa began her career with the City in February 2008, and currently holds the position of Deputy City Clerk in the Administrative Services Department.

Luisa has proven to be a tremendous asset in the Department, and takes great care in the performance of her many duties, which include preparing agendas and minutes, processing City legislation, drafting proclamations, and assisting with municipal elections.  She serves as a compliance officer with Fair Political Practices Commission’s filings, and coordinator on all California Public Records Act requests.  Luisa is also the department’s resident passport expert; the go-to person for City-wide research projects, and oversees all updates to the department’s webpage.  Luisa’s excellent writing skills, her adeptness at multi-tasking, and her attention to detail make her a tremendous asset to the City.  Her quick wit and clever personality is a bonus. 

When asked about her most enjoyable aspects of her job, Luisa replied, “while many outside of city government may not know what a city clerk does, it is one of the oldest positions in city government.  I think that is pretty cool.”  She also enjoys the camaraderie she has with co-workers; and the opportunity to work with the public, City Council Members, and community leaders.  She says that being Deputy City Clerk provides her with a broader knowledge of municipal government and her community which she can utilize when helping the public.   Oh, and she really enjoys long City Council Meetings!  J

When she is not serving the City of Porterville, Luisa enjoys spending time with her husband Mike, her “little Schatzi” one-year-old Alexander, family, friends, and their three dogs.  She enjoys crafting, is an avid reader, and a founding member of the City’s book club.
