Federal Times wants your thoughts on public service

Bookmark and Share

May 5 marks the beginning of Public Service Recognition Week. For this occasion, Federal Times invites you to share your thoughts on the state of federal public service.

These are trying and uncertain days for federal employees. Their compensation and contribution to the nation are under scrutiny like never before. Public support for federal employees is low. The nation’s leaders are engaged in an important debate on how to readjust the size and role of government.

Meanwhile, federal employees are retiring in large numbers.

We invite you to write a short, candid essay — between 300 and 500 words — on the state of federal public service and on what, if anything, should be done to improve it. The essay will be considered for publication in our May 6 issue and on our website.

Please submit your essay no later than Friday, April 19, to Markie Harwood at mharwood@federaltimes.com.
