Today, we would like to highlight the work of the Procurement Department’s Julio Vallejo. Julio will be retiring at the end of this year after 39 years with the City. The MDO sends its gratitude to Julio for his service and wishes him the best in future endeavors.
The Procurement Department provided this about Julio and his career:
“Julio Vallejo is currently a Procurement Technician Supervisor in our Public Works Division, Capital Projects Unit.
He graduated in 1967 from Ben Franklin High School, Philadelphia. He began his college education at Spring Garden College before serving a two year stint in the U. S. Army. Julio is a Vietnam veteran. After military service, he attended Antioch University under the GI Bill.
He began his public service working for the Mayor’s Office under Mayor Frank Rizzo, serving in the Hispanic community at the Concilio Community Services. In 1984 he joined the Procurement Department as a Technician and joined the newly formed Office of Fleet Management in 1992. In 1993 he worked in the Police Department and returned to Procurement in 1996. He has been a stalwart employee of the Public Works Division ever since.
He will be retiring at the end of this year after 39 years with the City. He is looking forward to spending more time with his family and has already been dubbed the Babysitter-in-Chief for his several grandchildren.”
Good luck, Julio!
