Phase 1 Construction (tentative) Summer 2015
Robert was born and raised in Oregon and began in the construction industry right after high school. After working on one of his first jobs, building heavy-duty logging and construction equipment, Robert decided he would rather be working as an operator the equipment instead of building and modifying it. It was more fun to play with when it was done!
25 years later, Robert is still enjoying playing in the dirt and the snow on his big toys. In 2000, Robert and his wife, Lynn, moved to Fairbanks. Robert joined the Local 302, and has worked various jobs across Alaska, from Prudhoe Bay to local contractors specializing in paving. After being a temporary employee for the City of Fairbanks for over 8 seasons, Robert accepted a full time position.
Robert has a daughter, Chelsea, who is currently in college in Oregon. He enjoys fishing, hunting and snow machining, and restoring his 1965 Mustang convertible in his off time. This year, he plans to start his racing career with his Legend coupe at the North Pole Speedway.
Janelle is a lifelong Alaskan. She grew up operating equipment for her father, Russ Hoffman. Janelle proudly joined the Local 302 as a journeyman in 2000. She enjoys fishing, hunting, and spending time with her four awesome children. Janelle said “I am very excited to be working for Public Works as I will be able to spend more time with my children.”
Welcome Robert and Janelle.
