Moffat County’s Best Electrician uses skill to serve community
Problem solving is an important part of being an electrician.
Don Williams, master electrician at D ‘n T Electric, said his imagination and creative nature are a big part of what make him good at his job.
“My imagination is one of the biggest things,” he said. “I still do service calls and when you do service calls, you have to figure out what someone else did. You don’t have days to do it and you’ve got to think of how to fix something.”
Williams said his experience, ingenuity and enjoyment he gets out of working with people probably play into why he was voted Best Electrician in the Craig Daily Press’s 2016 Best of Moffat County contest.
“That’s quite a deal,” he said after hearing of his award.
For 21 years, Williams has been serving the Craig and Moffat County community as an electrician alongside his wife, Tina Williams.
“It’s a team effort,” he said. “Tina does mostly the books and keeps control of me so I don’t go bonkers.”
Williams has master and contractor certifications, qualifying him for a wide range of work.
“I’m doing things that a lot of electricians won’t even tackle,” he said.
He also currently employs one other electrician, Clint Rogers, who has been with him for 10 years.
Beyond bringing his skills to customers, Williams also serves the community in several ways.
He sits on the board for the Moffat County Humane Society and helps wire up community events pro bono.
“I do a bunch of volunteer work,” he said. “Grand Olde West Days, out at the fair, I’ll set up temporary power for them and I don’t charge anything for that. It’s part of the community service.”
Williams said he was happy to win the award and is grateful to work with the community.
“I’d just like to thank the residents of Moffat County,” he said.
