Living a legacy: Leslie J. Kiser appointed Carter PVA


Feb. 5, 2014 —

In her experience with the PVA's office, Kiser has seen a lot of changes in technology. Although the office still keeps paper maps, they also keep digital records, which is the focus of one of her goals for the office.

“A lot of the photos of the structures we have are old and that was because it used to cost a lot to make new ones,” Kiser said. “Now that everything is digital, it costs nothing but time.”

Even armed with a digital camera, Kiser knows it will be a daunting task to document every structure. The difficult part will be getting used to being the PVA instead of a deputy.

“It will be weird to not have him here in the office if I need to ask him something,” Kiser said of her father. “He has been a good boss and this has been a good working environment. It will take some getting used to.”

In the meantime, Charlie Kiser, Jr. will be a few blocks away, not as PVA, but still a father who passed his legacy on to his daughter.

Leeann Akers can be reached at or by phone at 474-5101.
