Public service fuels our community. Public employees spend their days with the well-being of all of us in mind. Not only is public service our largest employment sector, the spirit of public service extends throughout the South Sound as those same individuals give back in ways beyond their jobs.
Look at the tremendous support we have here for nonprofit organizations, education and our natural environment. It’s because we have a core of dedicated, community-minded individuals as our neighbors.
Sixty years ago, a handful of public employees founded WSECU (Washington State Employees Credit Union), again, with the goal of helping others to gain access to cooperative financial services. As we approach Public Service Recognition Week May 7-13, let’s all thank and salute the impact of the thousands of public employees who make our community and our state a great place to live.
