Americans have come together in solidarity for the past 36 years to recognize and appreciate all of the Public Service Workers during the first week of May.
This year Public Service Recognition Week (PSRW) offered a perfect opportunity to pay homage to the men and women who serve as the backbone of our nation’s local, state and federal governments.
Amid COVID-19, public health workers and government employees at all levels continue working vigorously to ensure the safety of civilians as they tackle this pandemic from the front line.
“Their tireless efforts are ensuring Federal, State, local, and tribal governments, continue to provide necessary services to their constituents, are helping forge productive government-private sector partnerships, and are bolstering our ongoing recovery efforts,” said President Donald Trump.
These individuals should be gratefully acknowledged for their service and courage to continue working during this global pandemic. They have given the nation countless reasons to show appreciation by risking their own lives to serve their communities.
“We will forever be indebted to them for their hard work, dedication, and courage, always remembering their irreplaceable contributions to our people and our country,” said President Trump, “Through their dedicated efforts, the American people are protected and supported despite the unprecedented challenges we face.”
These employees benefit their communities in every way daily and it should not go unnoticed.
PSRW provided a perfect opportunity to recognize the postal workers, teachers, law enforcement and all other public service employees in the inland region especially during this unprecedented crisis.
