GovExec’s Erich Wagner and Tom Shoop join the podcast to discuss what it means to be a public servant in 2020.
Every era presents unique challenges for government officials, and every administration handles those challenges in its own way. But the novel coronavirus pandemic, coinciding with the precedent-breaking Trump administration, makes for especially challenging times for the federal civil service.
This is Public Service Recognition Week and today we talk about what it means to be a public servant in 2020. To date, more than 10,000 federal employees have been diagnosed with COVID-19. Many are performing heroically—on the front lines and behind the scenes—in difficult circumstances. Joining the podcast to talk about this is GovExec Correspondent Erich Wagner and Editor in Chief Tom Shoop.
