Public Service Town Hall
Monday, May 6
1:00 p.m. EST
Partnership for Public Service
Thank you for joining us for the third annual Public Service Town Hall. Secretaries Shaun Donovan and Janet Napolitano, Acting EPA Administrator Bob Perciasepe and Acting GSA Administrator Dan Tangherlini discussed the value of government service, how to communicate that value to the American people and ways to support and motivate employees in this challenging and uncertain environment. In keeping with the 2013 PSRW theme, moderator Cokie Roberts, an ABC News and NPR News political commentator, asked panelists why they serve. Responses ranged from: “because I want to make a difference in the world” to “because the future can and should be better than the present” to “because my parents told me that you have to leave the world better than the one you were brought into.”
