“Over the last 160 years, we have heard amazing stories of how electricians dedicate time to their communities, take ownership of difficult work and strive for professional achievement. They do all this while powering the destinations and events that embody the American spirit, like the lights of the Las Vegas Strip, NASCAR races, music venues and other entertainment that Americans look forward to every year,” says Greg Palese, vice president of marketing at Klein Tools. “We want to celebrate these electricians for their hard work and for powering America’s passions. Through the Electrician of the Year contest, Klein Tools showcases the finest U.S. electricians who do just that.”
