Public Service Recognition Week
Public employees keep our communities running, uphold our democracy and protect our common good. Elected officials debate policy and vote on the laws that govern Americans, and public employees ensure that the laws are executed and regulated. Public workers protect the environment, ensure our air and water quality, protect our wildlife, run our judiciary system and ensure public safety. They take care of children, our elderly and people with developmental disabilities to help everyone meet their potential. Public employees maintain our public infrastructure and make sure that everyone contributes with a fair taxation system. Our public workforce literally keeps this country moving with a well-maintained interstate highway system.
Public Service Recognition Week is a chance for us to celebrate our public employees for all that they do.
