Joseph Akers, Commissioner

Joseph Akers felt the need to be more involved in the community. He saw the open position for the Hospital District and felt that this would be a great opportunity to serve on one of the pillars of our community. He was eventually elected to the Board of Commissioners during the November 2013 General Election.

Joseph was born in Portland, Oregon eventually moving to Moses Lake in 1989 after living in multiple places within the Pacific Northwest during his childhood. After graduating from Moses Lake High School in 1991, Joseph began his search for what to do with his life, along the way he tried his hand as a Firefighter, EMT, Oil Refinery heavy equipment operator as well as a few others jobs in between. After getting married, and the reality of providing for someone other than himself, he went to work for Chemi-Con Materials Corp. a local manufacturing facility in 1996 up until 2018. In early 2018 Joseph decided it was time for a change, remaining in manufacturing, he move to SGL Composites LLC where he is currently the Production Manager.

Joseph and his wife, Elvia, were married in 1993 and have three children, Nathaniel, Joshua, and Hannah. They enjoy camping, fishing and going to the gym but more than anything, whatever activity can be done as a family.
