Nampa Mayor Debbie Kling is pleased to announce Jose DeLeon will begin as the new Facilities Manager for the former Hispanic Cultural Center, located at 315 Stampede Drive, on Monday, February 5.
DeLeon will be responsible for overseeing all areas of the facility’s operations, including but not limited to management of all general business operations, contract management, and event management, coordination, and scheduling.
Mayor Kling shared, “Jose is already a well-known and respected member of the Hispanic community and will be a tremendous asset to the facility and its future in this role. There is a lot of work to be done. It is our hope that with Jose’s leadership and guidance from the soon-to-be-formed Nampa Community & Cultural Advisory Group, the former Hispanic Cultural Center will once again be a thriving and resourceful location for the entire community.”
DeLeon has 16 years of public service experience, working as a Senior Workforce/Business Services Consultant for the Idaho Department of Labor and as Director of Programs at the Idaho Hispanic Chamber of Commerce for over two years.
DeLeon shared, “I am grateful and honored to be assuming the Cultural Center Facility Manager position for the City of Nampa. I am a native Nampan, born into a farmworker and agricultural background with roots in the community. I believe my professional career path has prepared me for this position and I look forward to serving the Hispanic/Latino community to the best of my abilities.”
Members for the Nampa Community & Cultural Advisory Group are anticipated to be announced next month. The first meeting of the Nampa Community & Cultural Advisory Group is expected to occur this spring.
