Thank You For Your Unselfish Service

We have found through this pandemic crisis to be grateful for many things. Not the least of these are for individuals on the front lines. This includes our healthcare and emergency services personnel, our retail store employees, and all of those who have served us during this challenging moment and often at considerable risk to themselves. I have the wonderful opportunity of observing such a group of individuals, our Washington City employees. These dedicated public servants have responded to emergency calls, kept the lights and water running, reacted to community demands, and continued business functions with as little disruption as possible. They are truly my heroes! I want to thank them for their unselfish service and demonstrated love to this community. It is not easy being a public servant, and I am often reminded of that great poem by Theodore Roosevelt, It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. To the wonderful men and women of the Washington City organization who always dare greatly, you are marvelous! It is a privilege to know you.
