TALLAHASSEE – Florida CFO Alex Sink offered the following statement in honor of Public Service Recognition Week, which begins today and lasts through May 9.
“This week Florida joins the nation in honoring the great work of our public servants with Public Service Recognition Week,” said CFO Sink. “The face of public service across our state is the men and women from our dedicated law enforcement officers and teachers to those who provide a host of services that we rely on every day.
As we prepare to protect our beaches from the potentially devastating effects of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, I am especially mindful of the dedication of Florida’s public employees all across our state. I encourage all Floridians to join me in showing appreciation for the important work of our state and local employees.
“This year’s theme is ‘Innovation and Opportunity,’ and I am especially proud of the innovative ideas from our Department of Financial Services employees that have allowed us to modernize and improve our service, and reduce expenses. Their hard work has saved Florida taxpayers millions of dollars while increasing efficiency and I thank them for their dedication and service.”
Celebrated since 1985, Public Service Recognition Week (PSRW) is a nationwide public education campaign honoring the men and women who serve our nation as federal, state, county and local government employees. For more information, visit http://publicservicerecognitionweek.org/
