Jackie Smith

I started working at City Light as a Meter Reader in 1979 and retired in 2019 as a Strategic Advisor 3. Little did I know that my job reading meters would open the door to so many opportunities to develop new skills and a love for electric utility systems.  In my various positions I was able to work with people all over the utility on several process improvement programs and information technology implementations.  I am new on the RCLEA Board and assisting Nancy with the secretary role.

2023 Board of Trustees

Bob Pahlman

I graduated from Ballard HS in 1965, and the UW with a zoology degree in 1969.  I was a science teacher at  Soaplake High from 1971-1978.  My Seattle City Light apprenticeship was from 1979-1982, then I was a substation electrician from 1981-1985, an underground cable splicer from 1985-1990, and finally a power dispatcher from 1990-2006.  I have two grandkids, and still enjoy skiing, biking, hiking, paddle boarding, etc.  Best of all I'm still alive!




Steve Hagen

I am RCLEA's Treasurer. I was elected to the Board in 2018 and became Treasurer in 2019.  My current term on the Board ends in 2023.  I was hired by City Light in 1980 as a Real Property Agent, spent 23 years in the Real Estate Services Unit, and retired in 2003 as the Manager, Real Estate Services.

We are excited to welcome Paul Munz and Tom Parks as our newest board members,  We still have a two more vacant positions.  Our most important function is planning events for our members, so we welcome your input! Contact Tony if you are interested.



Meet your Board Members!

Larry Works

I am currently a Vice President of RCLEA.  Being on the Board is fun and challenging. I worked at City Light from 1974 through 2012, mostly in Customer Service.  I did a lot of work with customers, electric service reps, and streetlight crews.  I was also active in Local 17.  I met my wife-to-be, Judy Jensen, at a CLEA picnic at the Skagit.

Retired City Light Employees Association (RCLEA)

Mary Pat DiLeva

I joined the RCLEA board in 2022.  I am currently the Newsletter/Webmaster.  Not sure how this tech dinosaur ended up with these tasks.  I started at City Light in November of 1999 and retired in 2015 with 16 years at the City, 13 of them with City Light.  I was the administrative support person for various Officers and Deputy Superintendents.  I am cat owned.

Maureen O'Neill

I retired in 2011 from Power Management as a  Management Systems Analyst. I started with Seattle City Light in 1980 at the Skagit Office in Newhalem.  My current RCLEA role is Vice President of Events, coordinating the Spring and Holiday Luncheons, the Summer Picnic, and other various events.  I thinks it's fun to help organize events and see, with everyone's help, how they come together.

Tom Parks

So, here I am, taking over the spot in the website previously occupied by Dix Fulton. Almost seems like heresy, doesn't it? I will do my best to fulfill all the expectations that accompanied his tenure. I was a carpenter for 16 years, then worked in Facilities Management for 20. I'm sure I moved all of you at one point or another and no, I still haven't found that box you are missing.

Paul Munz

I worked in the electric utility industry for more than 34 years. My career started with working 19 years at Seattle City Light (SCL), first in operations based out of the South Service Center, then transferred to the Power Management group working out of the old SCL building and then the Seattle Municipal Tower.  I left SCL to work with the Snohomish Public Utility District from 2007 until 2010.  In 2010, I started working for Bonneville Power Administration until retirement in 2022.  I lives in Seattle with my wife Beth.  We have two grown children.   


Tony Raimondi

I worked for the City of Seattle for 30 years and 2 months.  I started in January 1968  with a 5 month stint at the Police Dept., and joined City Light in July of that year in Accounts Payable. In 1969 I moved to Credit and Collections and was in field collections for  about 13 years.  In 1981 or 82 I moved into management in the Credit/Collections office till about 1995 at which time I moved to the City Light Call center also in management.  The Call Center was moved to Public Utilities in 1996.  I  retired in 1998 from that Department. 

John Carlin

I worked at City Light just over 20 years, retiring in  2008.  I started as an accountant in 1988, first in Cost, then in General Accounting.  After 10 years there I was promoted to Power Analyst, from which I retired in 2008.  There I was responsible for billing and payment to other utilities as the power flowed back and forth.
