President Obama on Federal Employees

President Obama on Federal Employees
Posted by Chris Lu on March 10, 2010 at 09:59 AM EST
Yesterday, the National Treasury Employees Union (NTEU) held its annual legislative conference in Washington, D.C. NTEU represents some 150,000 employees in 31 federal departments and agencies. A topic of discussion at the NTEU conference was last month’s attack on Internal Revenue Service employees in Austin, Texas. President Obama sent the following letter to NTEU’s National President Colleen Kelley:

Dear Colleen:

The events of recent weeks have again reminded us of the risks that federal civilian employees face in service to their nation. We are grateful to these employees for their dedication to enforcing laws and managing important programs that help all Americans. The Constitution's vision of 'a more perfect union' is only possible because of their tireless efforts.

My Administration is fully committed to maximizing the safety of federal employees and preventing acts of violence against them.


Barack Obama

Chris Lu is Assistant to the President and Cabinet Secretary

  1. Everything Obama learned about diplomacy he learned in kindergarten and it is us, the Americans who are paying for him not learing good lessons in the childhood. Hope his putting America on the path of "set a good example and others will follow" philosphy works!
