Each and every day, public servants face unique challenges
in the workplace. While the need for vital government services
continues to grow, we increasingly ask our public servants to
do more with less. Public Servants perform a myriad of tasks
that we may all take for granted every day. They provide essential
services and benefits including disease prevention, health care,
public safety and security, securing our waters, providing education
care and so much more.
Public Service Recognition Week is an appropriate time for
us to applaud their efforts and to reflect on the value of public
service, and give our civil servants the praise that so many
richly deserve, but so seldom receive. They deserve our support
and appreciation. With sincere gratitude for their important
contributions and sacrifice, for putting service before self,
we take this week to say THANK YOU.
