Public employees did incredible job

The recent paralyzing blizzard and intense snowfall showed the true value of our government employees. Police, fire, postal, highway and many others worked efficiently to restore and maintain services in our time of need. Imagine if you had to shovel your own street, or rely on private, for-profit companies rather than civil service, certified workers dedicated to the public good. The dedication of their respective unions helped ensure proper staffing and funding for the valuable services we all need. Let’s keep that in mind when we hear about having for-profit corporations replace our experienced public employees.
