Public employees make our lives better

Public servants always deserve a hearty "thank you," but Public Service Recognition Week (May 2-6) takes on extra meaning this year.

Never in recent memory has the nature and state of public employment been such a focus of national and local news.

This community is enriched by the work and volunteerism of public servants on the job and off. As chair of the board of directors for Washington State Employees Credit Union, I am so proud to serve a membership that supports Washington’s citizens.

From school teachers, to State Patrol officers, from parks maintenance workers, to Child Protective Services case managers, public employees make our lives better every day in so many ways.

WSECU salutes public servants and extends a heartfelt thank you for all that you do. Take the time this Public Service Recognition Week to thank a public employee.
