Hi there, it’s great to meet you! My name is Alida Verduzco Silva and I'm happy to call Porterville home. I am the Development Associate for the City of Porterville and my focus is local economic development. I’m passionate about building meaningful relationships, and as a member of the Community Development Department, I’m excited to help find new business opportunities for Porterville and provide resources for existing businesses.
It makes me happy to be part of what I like to call the greater “Team Porterville.” Working with countless community partners, it’s great knowing we’re all pursuing a common goal of improving our community. Together, we’re working on supporting businesses, creating more jobs, enhancing local education efforts, and improving the quality of life for everyone living, working and visiting here. When I’m not at City Hall or connecting with a local business owner, you can find me running, hiking, participating in a creative project, or spending time with family, friends and my four-legged buddies!
My name is Cindy Dogali, I am the escrow manager at All California Title and Escrow with over 30 years of experience, helping thousands of customers to fulfill their dream of being a home owner. Porterville has been my home town since 1973 after moving here from Oakland with my grandparents.
By focusing on customer service and utilizing my years of experience, it makes me proud to have strived in this industry for so many years. With the support of my family, friends and the amazing community we live in.
When not working hard to close escrow's I enjoy spending time with my grandson, son, friends and my horses. I love to also compete in barrel racing as well as ranch sorting and just being outside.
My name is David Shimer and I am proud to be serving the students and staff of the Burton School District as the Assistant Superintendent of Educational Services. I have called Burton School District home since 2004 where I started as a 5th grade teacher. I have lived in the Porterville area my whole life and graduated from Monache High School before earning my Bachelors and Masters degrees at Fresno State. My wife is also in education and is currently serving as the Superintendent of Strathmore Elementary District and we have four amazing kids who keep us very busy. I have always looked for ways to connect to the community and give back in any way that I can because this community has given so much to me. I am currently serving on the board of the Family Crisis Center as well as finding ways to connect to the community as a member of the Chamber Ambassador program.
I moved to Porterville in 2009 and have had the privilege to work in education. I recently retired from serving our families as a preschool teacher and administrative role at Alta Vista after 10 school years and 5 years at Sunnyside Elementary as a site coordinator and preschool substitute teacher. I am a partner of West Coast Believers Center International since 2010 and am proud to get to serve our community with Pastor Randel McNutt and Pastor Elia McNutt for the last five years here in Porterville. I am excited to serve our community businesses as the CSET Business Resource Specialist. This is another way to help our families connect with great businesses and businesses to connect with people who are a great fit to add to their companies. I look forward to helping and learning more here as an Ambassador.
