A Q&A with David Singleton, VP of Preconstruction at Singleton Electric Company, Inc.
Singleton Electric’s work on The Corbalis Treatment Plant received awards for two Craftsmanship Awards from The Washington Business Congress, earlier this year.
A typical year it surely was not. But, that did not keep the JATC from graduating 181 apprentices this June. Despite the obstacles of final in-classroom education transitioning to online these electrical apprentices continued to shine and successfully completed their final coursework and on-the-job trainings.

Local 26 distributes locally made hand sanitizer to local and regional contractors & more
IBEW Local 26 electricians have heart. When they discovered that hand sanitizer had become difficult to purchase, as a result of many snatching up cleaning supplies during the pandemic, they snapped into action. Seen as a win-win by the local union, 26 was able to purchase large quantities of the sanitizer from two local small businesses, McClintock Distilling and Baltimore Spirits Company, then distribute it to their workforce in need.
Electrical Alliance contractors, powered by their well-trained, skilled, union workforce, provide the highest level of quality for the jobs they service and supply workers for. Their workforce’s attention to safety, elevates them above the rest. Thus, it is no wonder that year-over-year Electrical Alliance electricians continue to sweep The Washington Building Congress (WBC) awards.
The 2019 holiday season brought about feelings of giving and gratitude for IBEW Local 26, the JATC and RENEW Group as it seems to each year. The organizations’ annual food drive did not disappoint. Leading up to Christmas the groups jointly collected and raised funds to donate over $8,000 worth of non-perishable food items, along with 35 gently used coats.
