Walker wants public employees to “…sing while you slave…” (Dylan’s Maggie’s Farm)

From: Governor Scott Walker

Subject: Recognizing Outstanding Public Service

Thank you for your service to Wisconsin. Our state is proud of the hard
work and dedication you bring to your job everyday. To express our
appreciation, we are creating a new State Employee Recognition Program
that will honor state employees who have gone above and beyond the call
of duty.

The program will have three awards. The first will be for outstanding
customer service. We’ll be asking Wisconsin residents to nominate the
state employees who have impressed them with outstanding service.

The second award will be for outstanding innovation. We are asking you
to nominate your colleagues who have demonstrated innovation, ingenuity,
and creativity in problem-solving, efficiency, and cost-saving
techniques in carrying out their work.

The third award is for ongoing dedication. This award is for the unsung
heroes who serve as role models to other employees; the employee who
always pitches in to help, who consistently exhibits a positive and
helpful attitude, and always “goes the extra mile” to assist his or her
colleagues. Again, we are asking for your help in nominating your peers
who deserve this special recognition.

You can find nomination forms at this link . I hope you’ll help us
recognize the most outstanding state employees for special recognition.
I also encourage you to watch this video message expressing our thanks.

Thanks again for your dedication to public service.

Scott Walker
