PORT TOWNSEND — Jefferson County Public Utility District hired two staff members in September.

The utility added Josh Garlock, a journeyman lineman, and Alex Gerrish, a geographic information system specialist.

Garlock spent the previous nine years as a lineman with the city of Ellensburg. He was raised outside of Yakima and has worked on crews in Oregon, California and Idaho.

“We were lucky to get Josh,” Jefferson PUD foreman Eric Tharaldsen said. “He has lots of experience and fit in immediately with the rest of the crew.”

Garlock lives in Port Ludlow with his wife and daughter, a second-grader who attends Chimacum schools.

Gerrish comes from Phoenix, Ariz. He was raised in Tuscon and received his undergraduate and master’s degrees from the University of Arizona.

“It was good timing for us,” said Jimmy Scarborough, Jefferson PUD Engineering Supervisor. “Alex had all the skills we were looking for. He’s been a great addition to the engineering department.”

Gerrish, who lives with his wife and three dogs in Port Townsend, will be in charge of mapping all of the PUD’s assets and keeping its maps up to date.
