After 22 years working for Arizona Public Service (APS), Joe Carter stepped into his new role as manager of the Williams office November 8.

"I am responsible for the construction and maintenance of the distributions system from basically Parks all the way to the west, a little past Seligman, from basically to the south from the Rim to the north to the Colorado River and all the way down into the Canyon," Carter said.

Before starting as manager, Carter worked for APS in Phoenix, overseeing statewide transmission maintenance.

Carter, who was born and raised in Phoenix, lives in Flagstaff. His father retired from APS after 40 years and lives in Flagstaff when he is not working. Carter's son is a freshman at Northern Arizona University.

Carter has worked on projects in Williams in the past. He also has some ties to Williams since two members of his sister-in-law's family were members of the Bill Williams Mountain Men. Carter participated in the group's annual ride in 1995.

Carter called his new job a "new realm" since he used to work in transmission and is now on the distribution side.

"So it's just fun to learn all the new things that I've never had to do before," he said. "And being in this role I have a lot to learn and big shoes to fill from the past people that have had this job. My goal is just to try to keep it at what it was, at a level of what it was and learn."
