    Tireless, dependable, reliable and pleasant. These are some of the words used by his residents, colleagues and supervisor at the Robles Park community. Javier does the difficult jobs and makes sacrifices that usually go unrecognized. Taking after-hours calls is not an easy venture. These calls can come at any hour of the night or weekends. Where others shy away from this responsibility, Javier steps up and takes on this responsibility time and time again without any complaint. He can be relied on to cover for those employees out sick or on vacation. There is that smile and an upbeat personality that helps to make a bad situation fine. He is an excellent plumber, a great colleague and an asset to the Robles Park community and the Tampa Housing Authority. Thank you for recognizing Mr. Javier Diaz as October’s employee of the month.

    Gilberto Roque, serves the Northern Scattered Sites as their Maintenance Mechanic III. Gilberto began work at the Tampa Housing Authority in 2011 and has had a stellar performance record. He served as the Maintenance Supervisor at Northern Scattered Sites but returned to the position as Maintenance Mechanic when he realized that he preferred serving rather than supervising at the properties. He has been able to do all repair work on the properties. His specialty is in the area of air conditioning. Gilberto can be counted on to take those after-hour calls from the various properties. He is reliable and can be counted on to do what is asked. He works as a mentor to the Maintenance Mechanic Technicians and new maintenance workers. Gilberto Roque is truly deserving of this recognition as our September Employee of the Month.

    Human Resources Specialist, Ms. Nelida Rodriguez has been with the Tampa Housing Authority since January of 2016. As THA’s greeter, Nelida reaches out to applicants and responds to many queries about working at THA. From the pleasant voices she encounters from applicants overjoyed by their selection to serve as a THA member, to the solemn queries and voices of those disappointed because they were not selected, Nelida keeps it upbeat and professional. A more exuberant and nicer person than Nelida, would be hard to find. Nelida has given of her time during the entire transitional period to assist the Human Resources team with the former Director’s retirement celebration. Juggling personal and familial issues last month, she was at work daily addressing issues in the HR department as they arose and new staff was properly oriented. So much more can be said on why she deserves this recognition. We appreciate Ms. Rodriguez’s service and her sunny disposition and recommend that she receive the recognition as our Employee of the Month.
