Director feels IID should have hiring preference for Vets

(The IID does not have a veteran’s preference)….Director Bruce Kuhn said they should.

Tuesday at the Imperial Irrigation District Board meeting Kuhn said the County has a hiring  preference  for Military Veterans, as does most other large companies and corporations in the Imperial County. He said many veterans are starting to return from over-seas and will be looking for work. Many will be wounded, but all will be heroes, deserving of a helping hand in finding work. Kuhn asked IID Human Resources Manager Dan DeVoy about offering a hiring preference to military veterans. DeVoy said he would investigate to see if there were any legal reasons why that could not happen. He said if it were legally possible, he would prepare a recommendation for the entire Board to consider.
