Public Service Recognition Week

Help Site Map Text Only

For Immediate Release May 4, 2000


Every day of our lives we depend on the work of public employees. We count on them to enforce laws that guarantee us equal employment opportunities and healthy working conditions. Their undying efforts have led to increased research for potential new drugs and expanded exploration of space. They plan our intricate web of freeways, track our economy and employment rate, protect our historic treasures and oversee programs that help connect disadvantaged communities to the world.

Public Service Recognition Week is an opportunity to show our respect for the hard work of those who in countless ways help improve and safeguard our country. The vast array of services provided by the government is an integral part of our lives. We cannot expect good government without good public employees. I thank all public employees for the work they do day after day to make our government effective.
