Top GOP Lawmaker Implores Colleagues to Publicly Praise Feds

A key Republican lawmaker is pushing his colleagues to honor federal employees during Public Service Recognition Week, calling it critical to recognize their commitment and offer them thanks just as the nation does for military personnel. In a letter to his fellow lawmakers, Rep. Phil Roe, R-Tenn., offered several suggestions for how his fellow House members should celebrate federal workers. He recommended his colleagues deliver a floor speech recognizing the achievements of a civil servant, send a personal note to an employee “who is making a difference for your constituents” or write a letter to the editor or op-ed to a local newspaper about those accomplishments. Roe encouraged members to visit agencies in Washington, D.C., or their home districts, to “hear directly from public sector employees” and to host meet and greets with finalists for the Samuel J. Heyman Service to America Medals.
