Don't take the contributions of federal workers for granted

May 6, 2014 - Edward E. Chase, Casper


Across the country, and in cities and towns in Wyoming, government employees serve and protect our nation every day.

During Public Service Recognition Week, May 4-l0, we gratefully acknowledge their service.

I want personally to thank the active and retired federal workers in Wyoming.

Federal employees care for our veterans and work side by side with our military to defend our country.

They conduct cutting-edge research to improve public health and regulate the safety of our food and medicines. The air traffic controllers at a number of Wyoming communities ensure the safety of thousands of passengers every year.

U.S. Department of Agriculture employees help the farmers and ranchers, and the Small Business Administration assists many small businesses in Wyoming. These are critical services.

We may not realize all that America's public servants do for us on a daily basis.

Let's not take for granted the services they provide. During Public Service Recognition Week, and throughout the year, please take time to say "thank you" to public employees in your community.
