The Public Servant

What does it mean to be in service of the public?

Commitment to the good of the common man

A commitment to people not processes.

Having an affinity for tools not trophies

Trading in the currency of progress and not of prestige

Realizing the irony of being the winner of a losing system

Being committed to looking out for the least of us.

Having a posture of stewardship

Not entitlement.

It is you who serves the public

Not the other way around.
